Currently I'm getting 110 to 150 FPS and have a 60hz monitor.
Am I correct that ideally I should aim for a constant 150 FPS and a 144hz monitor?
My current specs are:
i5-3570K at 3.40GHz
8 GB RAM
I figure the video card is what needs to be upgraded as it's pretty old. Since CSGO is pretty much the only game I play, I wondering what is the least expensive card that would give me the FPS I need. I mean I'm temped to treat myself and get a nice 970 but part of me is saying that would be a huge waste of money given my gaming habits. I do want to stick with a Nvidia card, no AMD suggestions please.
I'd like to also get a 144hz monitor and unsure where to go on that. It seems like I have these two options.
Over clocking the CPU is another option to for increased performance, but I'm fairly sure it's the GPU bottlenecking not the CPU.
