I think your 4790 it's still quite good because it's a non k.
Are you already over clocking it?


I can't overclock it it's not the k version so it's not unlocked. It has a core speed of 3.6 ghz and it can boost 1 core up to 4.0 ghz
Intel I7 4790(non k) 3.6GHz,16gb RAM DDR3,GTX 1080, MSI Z97 PC mate MOBO, Corsair 540. Gaming at 1440p 144hz is just amazing!!! PC MASTER RACE!

Your right, but that CPU is still pretty good.
Only reason to upgrade would be if you play CPU intensive games like total war or civilization daily.
That's why I'm streaming LoLz right now and why I have bought 9300 IP on two accounts so far. Because I don't play it. Makes perfect sense ~ Karmic Dragon

I would either wait for Coffee Lake(6 core CPUs) or buy Ryzen.


Ryzen would lose gaming performance over the 4790 lol
