Is this still a good PSU by today's standards?

I have a Fractal R4, love the minimalist design.

For your CPU, you probably will get almost no gaming performance upgrading. I would be surprised if someone could show a benchmark that going to a newer i5 would even gain 5% FPS in any game.

Edit: I was actually proven wrong, there is a difference, but is it worth upgrading? Were talking about 84 to 89 FPS:

Ok, I'm a little confused by the i5-4670(k) comparison/suggestion. I had been under the impression that Haswell was incompatible with LGA1155 sockets.
