    I can upgrade to a 2600 but not sure if it's worth it at 3440x1440.

    My 1600 is currently clocked at 3,8ghz.

    Hi signex , it is not worth it in my own opinion as at that resolution the bottleneck definitely will be the graphics card. Also you already have a nice overclock on your 1600. Wait it out for Zen 2 :D is your best bet , that's what i'm doing.

    Kind Regards: Angelo

    I wouldn't really bother, assuming you have that 3.8ghz oc running with reasonably fast ram without any issues. If you can do this for next to nothing, sure, why not, the IPC is slightly better on the 2600 but at that res you will struggle to see the difference.

    Only worth if you can do the upgrade with 0 cost imo

    I'd go as far as saying that I'd do it for up to about £50 but no more than that. In the end, many will probably jumping on the Zen2 wagon when it releases, or whatever Intel offers in that range.
