Yeah the guy is playing games that just aren't going to benefit from better hardware.
It's the reason I kept running my old Intel 7th Gen Intel PC with a GTX 1080 for so long: Everything I played at that time ran fine on it with 90+ FPS framerates (old games like L4D2, KF2, GTA5, Borderlands, etc). What prompted me to upgrade to a new system a couple of years ago was getting into some more demanding games like Deep Rock Galactic, Metro Exodus and Control that choked that old rig. On top of that, what really necessitated a faster system was getting bit by the survival/sandbox/factory game genre. Games like Astroneer, Satisfactory, Valheim, even Java Minecraft (with the upgraded textures and long viewing distances I preferred) need a lot of CPU horsepower, in addition to a beefy GPU.
I'm very happy with my current Ryzen 7 5800x with RTX 4090 at 3440x1440 (to be fair, almost everything ran fine on the RTX 3080, but the 4090 was a birthday gift to myself). I actually have the system's global FPS capped at 140 (otherwise old games just make the GPU over work for useless 240+ FPS), and nearly everything can run at least 120 FPS at max eye candy (except Control - that game is the new Crysis).
It's also why, despite looking, longingly at some larger monitors recently, I'm perfectly happy with my 3440x1440 ultra wide. People get 4K monitors, and then are dismayed that their high end gaming PC that performed great at 1440p can't give them the framerate they want. Increasing resolution exponentially increases GPU power requirement.
