So I have a little bit of cash burning a hole in my pocket and that itch only an upgrade can scratch. You can see my current rig in my description and was wondering if getting a 4790(non K) for $220 would be a good idea.

no

for $220 you can get ryzen 1600 which has better IPC, is overclockable and has 2 more cores

Ryzen 5 3600 stock | 2x16GB C13 3200MHz (AFR) | GTX 760 (Sold the VII)| ASUS Prime X570-P | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

while I DO agree.. a 200$ motherboard and 100$ in ram may make this not viable for OP

then don't buy ryzen right now, save up the money, invest it into something with better price/performance later on down the road when you need it and not want it

The 4790 is sill a perfectly viable CPU and should last the OP at least 3-4 years

it is but for the price he is buying it for, not worth it 

yes it is still a good CPU that will last him for a long time, and yes it is a performance boost but it is not good value IMO

My brain went to CDN and was like oh that's a pretty good deal.If that's in USD then maybe try to get him to 150

in terms of gaming performance a ryzen cpu is basically on par with Haswell, namely a 4770k. i wouldn't move from haswell to Ryzen for the purposes of gaming specifically, wait for an 8700k

1600 isn't much worse than 4790 non-k for gaming. Ryzen has slightly worse IPC but 1600 can be overclocked to 3.8-4.0 ghz.

I have a 4770k and i would say it might have a year left in it, maybe two before its completely obsolete. it is already 4 years old, normally start a new build cycle every 4-5 years to stay relevant

you can get a 4790k running at like 4.6-4.8 though so, not really worth it if they are a gamer

not really, at same clock they are similar.

ah, my mistake, in that case i wouldnt even bother upgrading. wait and start a new build cycle when you're ready

what do you mean ? they are the same chip with different TIM on the die essentially. im saying that i already have a 4790k equivalent and i feel its getting long in the tooth for gaming

4770k is not much worse than 7700k. 7700k has same IPC as 6700k and 6700k was a small improvement over 47x0k. 4770k will be fine until devs start using more cores.

older 22nm architecture running 1600mhz ddr3 ram though at a clock around 15-20% lower than a 7700k can be OC'd to paired with a 15% + improvement in IPC as well as new technologies. 7700k is significantly better for high end/ high refresh rate gaming. my 4770k is bottlenecking my gtx 1080 and im pretty keen for an 8700k with an extra 2 cores 4threads as i play some simulators etc that are very cpu intensive

$220 sounds like a bit much for a little extra life for your build. Don't get me wrong, a 4790 build is a fine PC, it's just that is not that far away from what you already have imho. 

Just because it's not the time to go crazy with upgrades everywhere for you doesn't mean that you should pay more for an older CPU than you would pay for a newer CPU delivering the same performance on a newer platform.

yes, but real world performance isn't that much worse. If it is OCed then between 7600k/1600 OCed and 7700k
