Is the Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge CPU worth upgrading at this time?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I currently have the Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge CPU in my most current build. I was thinking about selling my entire computer to my brother as his computer is quite old. Is it worth it at this time to completely upgrade my computer? If I were to sell my computer, what CPU would be high on the recommendation list?

If your brother is in need and you have the itch, otherwise it is still a great system (maybe minus the video card). If you had to upgrade right now either the i7 7700K or the RyZen 1700.
