I'm struggling to get above stable 144 at 1080, have to play below native res to get frames because of this.
I know CPU is almost always the cause of any bottlenecks in TF2, but I'm wondering if the cause is perhaps the chipset? Resource monitor does show my CPU at 100% when FPS tanks in game.
Mobo - i7 6700
Processor - Asus H110I-PLUS D3
GPU - PNY Signature GTX 680
Basically my question is: If I want to spend the smallest amount of money upgrading some components, would it be cheapest to just get a new motherboard (I'm considering changing form factor from ITX), or should I look at getting a new CPU + Motherboard entirely?
