Should I bother upgrading?

I currently have an i7 4770 (non k) and I was wondering if I should even bother upgrading it or if I should hold off (was thinking of ugrading to an i5 9400f).

Are you satisfied with your current CPU performance? If not, then consider an upgrade. Otherwise, stick with what you have.

The 9400F is an underwhelming upgrade, a 4 Core 8 Thread CPU is comparable to a 6 Core 6 Thread CPU, so the only difference you'd be seeing is clock speed and IPC improvement which shouldn't amount to anything substantial especially since you'd be upgrading your Motherboard + RAM along side with it, if you want to upgrade at least go with a Ryzen 5 3600 and preferably I would suggest to wait for Ryzen 4000 Series coming out this year which should give you an even bigger upgrade for the same price.
