Worth going from 4670k to 4770k?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I just upgraded my rig last month, and now I see all these new games like Shadow of Mordor and Watch dogs require an i7. Would it be worth it going from a 4670k to 4770k just for the HT?

My specs:

4670k @ 4.4 GHz
EVGA 780 ti @ 1305 MHz
8GB DDR3

Honestly, probably not. Unless you can upgrade for like 50 bucks, i don't think you'll see a big enough difference in performance to even bother.

And for the record, system spec requirements are usually overly high; I played battlefield 4 on ultra settings just fin on a stock i5

I just hope I can max out those games with my overclocked 4670k. Since the recommended for Watch dogs is 4770k+780, I didn't buy a 780 ti to play games on high. I can easily get 40-70 fps on crysis 3 8xmsaa thought, 40 being the lowest in jungle maps.

What they said. Not worth it unless you can utilize the HT in other applications.

Also, another point to think about: You might even end up with a really bad 4770k that wouldn´t even make to 4.4GHz. So, would spend a 100 bucks or something and get worse performance.

And one one thing: Even if you win a lottery and find yourself in the position to spend the money, I´d probably just wait for the Haswell refresh and get one of these.

So you think 4670k can max out this game or at least close to it? even if it does use HT? At least my card is good to go.

I think I will get an SSD instead of a new cpu then, since I upgraded recently and I'm on a SATA II HDD LOL
