i7-4790k time for upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,

I am thinking about a major upgrade to my system. But before i do anything i just wanted to run it by you guys ;)

 

I have a system running a i7-4790k with a noctura d14 (can't overclock it to more than 4.4 really lost the lottery on this chip) and i am running a Asus Hero VII with 16 gigs of ram and a 1080 graphics card at the moment .

 

My system is primarily used for gaming about 90% (bf and the sorts) but i also do abit of blender and the sorts (about 5%).

 

i'm running a XB270H(144hz 1080p) but thinking about going 2k in the nearish future.

 

i am upgrading because my system is a bit unstable and i got some money to do so.

..

What i have been thinking about is

i9-9900k/i9-8700k - ASUS PRIME Z390-P - Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-3200 DC 16GB - MSI GeForce RTX 2080 VENTUS and a NZXT Kraken X62 RGB

 

Or just going straight for a 2080ti and sticking with my i7-4790k

any sugestions or inputs on this?

I didn't read the post as i am on dark mode.

The i7 4790k is a very strong cpu still till today, don't really need to upgrade atm, is my opinion.

I7 8700k over the i9, since even though the i9 is "best" for gaming it's also a wretched value.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

an i7 4770k is still a really good cpu, an i9 is super overkill for gaming unless your planning on insane graphics/resolution, if i were you i'd just wait a bit to upgrade anything and just use the money later down the line when you need an upgrade

also use standard text formatting so we dark mode users can read in the future :D
