it works well for me i have gtx 1050 ti and can reach 40 fps fortnite ultra minimum


Poor

5 months ago.

it really suck for most of new games. GTA V with 1060 got FPS real high but stuttering and drop it to 1-5 for short time (or maybe minutes sometime) cant play with happiness and more with other games same problem. in fact i understand this CPU is really old and not a top model even in it's age just wanted to recommend if you want to play high-end game you must pay the price for higher CPU but it's worth you know that


Excellent
