BroadPwns Can't, 4.2GHz is pretty much the highest frequency a regular 5775c can get.

You can get more than 4.2 Ghz. out of your 5775c can't you? Or does it have the same overclocking limitations as Broadwell-e?

Not by a great amount but GPU usage constantly drops below 97% in 6 games I've tested. Most likely because of weak RAM throughput, which I already have maxed.
Can you get faster DDR3 RAM for your 5775c? Didn't they have 3000Mhz flavors of DDR3?

As far as I'm understanding, you're writing real time raytracing demos/projects using Optix.. so buying an RTX card is the solution for that problem.

970 is also showing it's age now just for gaming alone, so I expect a new GPU and using NVENC (GPU encoder) will help tremendously in games, since the 4690K is still capable of at least 60FPS in most any game I can think of.
Indeed, so it looks like my plan is solid. After getting an RTX, I might attempt to push up my cpu, but I will stop if my linear approximation suggests poor fps increase per ghz increase.

Considering there is no upgrade path past a 4 core 8 thread i7 and you still have DDR3 ram on that gen, I would get the i7 just to have the PC be as fast as it ever will be, because when you eventually upgrade for next gen you will have to get a new CPU, ram, and mobo anyway so you might as well max out this PC and use it as a spare later on.
Dont have an option on the rtx stuff. The question is in the most simplistic sense, "Will pushing the clock speeds up even further make a difference with an rtx and my current cpu, or is there no point in stressing the chip?"

Obviously, I could give away my cpu to someone who has a worse one, which still happens today. But it seems that I wont even need to worry about that because OC'ing this cpu is super safe, as I have just been informed.
