Is the 4770k worth it?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Before I start I'm not gonna wait again for like DDR4.

K, so right now I have a i7 960 @ 4.0 that I could push a little further. I'd be fine with this, problem is my motherboard is ass and doesn't let me use two of my cards. I also would like to upgrade my processor, and want an unlocked processor. So my biggest attraction for upgrading is overclocking. Would it be better to buy Ivy bridge or is Haswell up to par with ivy bridges OCing?

Well depends on what you do, and how much money is worth for you.
Assuming both the i7 950(+1ghz oc) and 4770k(+1.2 ghz oc) scale the same on overclock

So in productivity, it is clearly better., but the upgrade cost about 450+ depending on what you need... (ram, psu)
