I recently noticed that I'm not having a smooth gaming experience on my machine anymore. Last time I upgraded some pieces was atleast 3 years ago I think and if I recall correctly I think my CPU is my oldest part.
I don't know anything about this stuff, so I came here to ask for help.
Here are my parts:
- Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 CPU @ 3.10GHz
- RAM: 12 GB
- Video Card: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series (Dedicated Memory 3.0 GB)
- HD: 1 TB
- SSD: 120 GB
I run on 2 monitors (1920x1080 & 1600x1080). I mainly code (using programs like PHPStorm & Visual Studio Code) and game.
I'm pretty sure my CPU is the bottleneck, I'm just not sure how hard it's dragging the performance down and how far behind the rest of my hardware is compared to today's standards. If you guys need more info, please let me know.
Thanks in advance for the help!
