Hi all! I am looking to upgrade one of the following and would like your advice on best bang for buck.

I currently have:
  • MSI 3070ti 8GB Suprim video card
  • i7 9700K CPU
  • 16GB DDR4
Is the processor a bottleneck for this build ATM? I was thinking of upgrading to the i5-13600K . Thoughts? What's a good motherboard that's mid range with DDR5 support? I dont need wifi or lots of bells and whistles. I play at 1440p (25660x1440) on a 32" monitor and aim for 120 FPS. If I don't upgrade to a 4090 anytime soon, is it still worth upgrading my CPU for my current setup?

Is it worth upgrading to a 4090 from the 3070ti?

Thanks for your advice!

Might want to correct the i5 to the 13600K as it looks like your going back to ivy bridge. Also dont waste money on a 4090 as both of those cpu's will seriously bottleneck it, and playing anything under 4k will just make the bottleneck worse. The card should be fine for what you want to do, just need a more modern cpu and board to let it stretch its legs.
