You might see some relatively small fps increases in a couple of games (BF4 for example) if you can OC the 4930K as high as the 3770K. So based on that if you had the money to blow and wanted something new to play with then why not.

However, Haswell-E and 8-core chips are only some months away. 6 months tops. So if you wait 3-6 months for that you'll get an IPC boost, 100% more cores and DDR4 instead of no IPC boost, 50% more cores and DDR3.

I am just planning to change CPU because when playing FAR CRY 3 on big fights on camps my fps sometimes dips to 35-40fps. Even without MSAA . So i think that is CPU too slow yes?

no, you have a 3770k which has no worries playing FC3.
FC3 is a buggy mess in some areas, little you can do to increase the frames when you hit those spots other than getting SLI 290xs or 780tis and muscling through it.

is your cpu at stock? if it is, then you might be better off oc'ing it.

monitor your usage for both cpu and gpu.
