If you're still gaming on 16GB of RAM, you're missing out.
I don't think I am, Monica J. White.
My 3700x, x370, 16GB, 4090 runs everything just fine, thank you very much.
Also, your RTX 4090 deserves better than a measly 3700X.
heheh if I was playing in 1080p or 1440p and needed 8000 fps then maybe I would upgrade the CPU. For 4k@120 - cpu and ram doesn't matter whatsoever. Maaaaaby some 1% lows here and there? Still not worth it. The money is much better spent on the graphics card.

As a 4K@144Hz gamer, I thought the same when I first put the RTX 4090 into my good old i9-9900K rig but then I found more and more info online that the CPU matters more than I thought, even at 4K ultra. So I upgraded to an i9-13900K very early last year (Jan 2023) and it was true. The shackles came off the RTX 4090 and it learned to fly .
I would definitely recommend to do yourself (and your 4090) a favor and get that sweet 5800X3D at the next opportunity (promo or sale). It is worth it.
I have yet to play a game where the performance is limited by the CPU and not the GPU. I don't play many Civ-type games, though. Maybe that is why. Also, the 4090 doesn't really need to fly, in fact I hate it when it tries! I more often than not limit the fps to 90 (depending on the game) to keep it quieter and prevent the jet turbines spinning up
