I have an i7 2600 and a gtx 750, should I upgrade my CPU or graphics card? I do mostly esports games like Rocket League at high settings. Right now I usually get about 60 fps on Rocket League, and when I lower my settings, I still get 60 fps, so something must be bottlenecking possibly?

Play the video at 1.25x speed. Either Linus is speaking really slow or the video is slow.

If we don't have multiple cards / cpus to test with, how can we test where our bottleneck is on our machines?
