Many people or gamer should really consider about this case especially when they are confuse about upgrading their processor or their graphic card. Both of them are having their own job to make our gaming experience becomes more enjoyable. Processor itself has having a job to run of your system and then doing some basic framework to make everything is working well. it is really different on graphic card whey they only usable to do some works on handling the texture and doing everything in creating everything. Basically they handle everything about the visual and then the processor would take the bone. If you are really into with gaming then you have to choose carefully when you decided on upgrading your computer. Don’t make the wrong choice because both of them are having important job for the performance. Some of games are really dependable on processor because they need to take many resources, but also there are also many games where everything is counted on GPU. Game like GTA 5 is so dependable on processor and you really need to have a good processor to run it very well or you would find some missing artifact or lag on your gameplay.
But you don’t have afraid for always upgrading your CPU because their life are quite long and you just have to change them every 3 or 4 years if you have having a powerful one. It’s better to save your money for having more powerful GPU for handling all the newer games now that are really good on visual. All of processing would be taken by this thing and even the lowest CPU now is already good enough for supporting it. It would be different case if you also want to do some works beside than playing games. Video rendering or editing are some of examples where you need a faster processor to do this case. Having more cores or better clock is must to make the performance is better. The process is full processed by the processor and GPU only handle some of them.
So, I have to say that GPU is more important on gaming. You don’t need to be confused anymore and start saving your money for buying a new one. Don’t start picking any cheap one because the development in gaming is pretty fast and your product would be in junk if it’s not good enough/
