    Your Matching GPU will gain NOTHING from a GPU upgrade.

    Your bottleneck is the 3.6 GHZ clock rate.

    Thank you Jorgen

    How many monitors are you using?
    And what is the resolution of those monitors?

    Also run GPU-Z and HWMonitor while P3D is running, and look at Max GPU use to see how heavily your GPU was used while playing.

    One monitor at 1920x1080

    You don't need data to know that the CPU is the primary limiting factor.
    Intel 10700K @ 5.0 Ghz, Asus Maxumus XII Hero MB, Noctua NH-U12A Cooler, Corsair Vengence Pro 32GB 3200Mhz, Geforce RTX 2060 Super GPU, Cooler Master HAF 932 Tower, Thermaltake 1000W Toughpower PSU, Windows 10 Professional 64-Bit, and other good stuff.

    I have the same CPU and am GPU limited with a 1070.

    It's amazing how long people stumble around when they cannot do the basic data collection required to do proper troubleshooting. </shrug>

    I do know my rig ([email protected] GHz laptop, GTX1050) is CPU limited, because its usage is frequently pegged at 100% (I can see this using MSI Afterburner).

    However, how do I know how much should I overclock (or which CPU should I purchase) in order to balance usages?
