I assume you mean 4770k because 4470k isn't a thing.

 

 

Considering what ETA Prime achieved in the video with the i5 and worse video cards, I think you'd be fine for anything up through PS2/GameCube era but newer consoles than that are doubtful.

 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

as far as ps2 goes it's completely fine and runs at stable 60fps at 1080p

Not really possible.  RPCS3 (probably anything newer too) needs at *minimum* a R5 3600, and its not that great, you'd be better off with a more powerful 8c/16t processor with AVX512 support. 

The direction tells you... the direction

Rpcs3 runs at acceptable levels starting from a ryzen 3600 in most games but really needs FAST single core performance + enough cores. Something the 4770k does not have. Single core performance wise can be remedied a decent bit with a good overclock but still it will be far behind even modern budget cpu's that are in your budget or almost in your budget like a i3 12100. Of course this means new ram and motherboard.

 

So basically for 100 pounds you won't get anything better than what you have now for your purposes.

yeah those processors seem currently quite overpriced,  maybe you could find something used.

Yup a i5 12400 would be a nice starter.
