3570k is still more than adequate unless you're chasing 144+ FPS, and even then it can manage it in a few titles. Hang onto it and redo the whole thing in like, one or two more processor generations.

I am running the same cpu as you and have thought about upgrading. Then watch a few videos and said screw it. It still performs really good at 1440p with my rx 480.

If you really want something to upgrade maybe an ssd and a better graphics card.

Well i just got Battlefront 2 and usually i do a glance on "can my pc run it" see if i might run into issues and it advised me to replace my CPU telling me it doesnt meet the minimum.

On a side note i never heard of the term "delid"


The CPU might fail keeping 60 FPS all the time, but it'll handle the game.
If you're prepared to upgrade anyway, you don't have anything to lose by trying the game first and then decide whether to upgrade.

The best CPU you can get is the i7 3770k, and while that has aged well for modern games, it's typically expensive and not worth it for a five year old CPU.
Any other upgrade forces you to get a new motherboard and RAM as well.
Super Mario Kart is the single best Mario Kart ever!
