I have a i7-4790k and still can mange to compete with the 7th gen of its kinds. In real world its like 20% faster in overall but not worth the price still. Till my 4gen is no longer able to keep up, then ill keep using it. BTW i am rocking a 1080 with 1080i monitor.. no need for all that eye candy 4k stuff yet. waiting on prices to come down in a few short years.

I assume you mean a 1080p monitor aka Hi-Def.

There is a difference between benchmark performance and real-world "do you feel it?" performance.

I have a 3770k running at 4.25 consistently and turbos up to 4.52. It's paired with an 850 Pro SSD and a GTX 960.

I can't do too much gaming at 4k, but I have a wonderful amount of screen real estate. Videos, etc., all play fine. Booting up is nearly instant. I'm sure it would be faster, especially if I was gaming, but given video cards prices, I just bought a One X for that.

The only reason I replaced my 3770k is my motherboard died. I wound up upgrading the whole works since it had been a few years and put in the 6700k I have now, along with a 1070, 2TB 850 Pro and 32gb of RAM. I can play at 4K with no real issues and Photoshop absolutely flies. Had the board not died, I'd probably still be on the 3770K.

I was thinking of replacing the whole rig, but it's just not necessary at this point. I'm going to replace the fans and such this weekend. Other than that, it does everything I need and nearly instantly. I just don't see the need to drop another grand or two now.
