    Upgrade from 4670k to 4790k?

    I'm just looking for some input if you guys think it's worth the jump. I'm currently running my 4670k at a modest overclock at 4ghz. I game at 1080p@144hz with a GTX 1080 so I imagine I would benefit from a beefier cpu to pump out a few more fps at that refresh rate. I don't have any...

    I just replaced my 4890 with a 6870 and I still have a 8800gt for physx. I've been checking some of the crossfire benchmarks and it seems the 6870 scales very well, beating 2 5870's in most cases which makes crossfire very tempting. I game at 1920x1080 on a single monitor. if you were me...
