Is it time to upgrade from a 7700k at 4.9 Ghz yet? 

 

Shadow of the tomb raider is the first real DX12 game to launch and having more cores will be the best solution in the near future for gaming, curious what  you guys think!

No. The slight performance increase you will get would not be worth the increase in cost. Intel is still on 14nm. Wait a few more years.

CPU: Intel i7 6700k  | Motherboard: Gigabyte Z170x Gaming 5 | RAM: 2x16GB 3000MHz Corsair Vengeance LPX | GPU: Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1080ti | PSU: Corsair RM750x (2018) | Case: BeQuiet SilentBase 800 | Cooler: Arctic Freezer 34 eSports | SSD: Samsung 970 Evo 500GB + Samsung 840 500GB + Crucial MX500 2TB | Monitor: Acer Predator XB271HU + Samsung BX2450

I would personally wait until either AMD's Zen 3000 series processors release or wait until Intel's 10nm processors are released. It isn't worth spending upwards of several hundred dollars to replace the board and processor and going through all of the hassles that entails. The i7 7700K is still a very capable processor and will be for at least the next 2-4 years. I'm still using an i7 6700K @4.6GHz and it still does everything I need it to, as well as run every game I throw at it flawlessly.

Main PC :

CPU = R9 3900X / Motherboard = Asus Crosshair 8 Hero / GPU = EVGA SC Ultra RTX 2060 / RAM = Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200 ( 32GB ) / Cooling = Dark Rock Pro 4 / Storage = Western Digital Caviar Blue ( X4 ) Crucial 500GB NVME, 500 GB 970 EVO/ PSU = Seasonic X-850 Modular / Case = Corsair Carbide 200R

Wireless = Asus PCE-AC56 / Keyboard & Mouse = Corsair K70 MX Blue, Logitech G203 / Headphones = Hyperx Cloud Alpha /
