Keep 4770k or wait for broadwell with DDR4?

Bought a 4770k, but I don't mind waiting if new chips are coming out

DDR4 won't make a difference for a typical gamer with a dedicated GPU in a desktop. It's more useful for laptops, its biggest draw is the reduced power usage. It will also be beneficial for people using integrated graphics, especially APUs, which again will be more useful for laptops but I might make a cheapo APU MMO machine for my bedroom if SteamOS pans out as well as I'm hoping.

I would wait because I read they are going with a 14nm die shrink. It would be sick if the improvement over Haswell is 20% per clock or more and they can oc really well.

Intel seems to really want to go for it with an 18 core chip. I still am getting slow down in emulation with some games with a i5 4670k at 4.3 ghz at 1440p... Always a reason to upgrade.
