Well my buddy (xxbassplayerxx) said the 4770k can be bought for $280 and the 4670k for $200. He also said depending on the game I'll see 10-30% improvement, mainly due to the architecture. If that's the case then it seems it would be a reasonable upgrade. Especially since I hope to get ~$200 for my i7 950 and EVGA x58 tri-sli mobo. I'd probably go with the 4670k too since not many games utilize more than 4 cores/threads.

Your friend doesn't know what he's talking about.

The chart you posted compares the 920 at near-maximum overclock frequency to a 3770K that's just getting its feet wet. All four of the Ivy chips I've owned (3x 3770K, 1x 3570K) have done at least 4.7GHz with 1.35V or less. There are definitely some games where processor doesn't matter at all (to a certain degree). However, there are also games where both architecture and frequency make a significant difference:





It's a decent upgrade from an aging system. It's not necessary, no, but he could be using a Q9550 and that would still be fine. Perhaps with the release of the XBox One and PS4 games will start to push a bit harder, as well.

920 still putting up great frames even when clocked at 2.66Ghz

Clock the 3770K down to 2.5Ghz and it pulls 1fps more then a 2.66Ghz 920 wink.gif

I couldn't still be on a LGA 775 for a primary or gaming rig..
Q9550 or whatever chip in that class would have to be overclocked to it's limits to stay competitive.
and then it will still lose because of the arch advancements thru the years after.

See my edit above chew. 2.5Ghz 3770K was 1fps ahead of a 2.66Ghz 920 so they're extremely close. Real advantage is the 3770K can clock higher then most bloomfields.
