Great! I thought it should be that way, but I haven't built a PC in 10 years! Hard to believe, but I've my 3570K has been overclocked from 3.4 Ghz to 4.1 Ghz for all 10 years. It can't handle the new games now.
I think it's also your videocard.
10yr old videocard playing cyberpunk 2077 for example would be on the same level of you slowly cutting yourself with a razor each time u moved your mouse around to enjoy the fidelity. Oh wait your card and monitor probably can't even do HDR.

He's got a GTX 1070 = 5+ years old. It still may not be able to handle the new games, but it's not ten years old. We don't his monitor and the resolution that he drives it at.

regardless i can't think of any worthwhile modern gpu which would not get bottlenecked @ a 2600k
im pretty sure the 1070 might even be bottlenecked by that cpu at lower resolutions.

There was a GPU thread awhile back about this and even GPUs like the 1070 will absolutely be bottlenecked in modern titles by a CPU that old.

Getting a new CPU will make a noticeable difference even without a GPU upgrade.
