it is definitely worth upgrading to a i7 4770k from a i7 2600k

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded from a i7 2600k to a i7 4770k and I just have to say I notice a big difference in performance especially when gaming . there is no more screen stuttering when playing call of duty black ops 2 and call of duty ghosts multi player .

I don't know what you're on about but my 2600k and GTX580 breeze through CoDs of all flavours without stutter. Did you clean install for the 4770k?
