Hello, My mobo has finally given up the ghost. CPU appears ok, had it OC’d to 4.8GHz stable. Got 1080ti and I use it primarily for gaming. Got 1440p 144Hz monitor with G-Sync and loving it. Two issues: 1. Can’t buy decent LGA1150 mobo anymore (z97) - the cheapest option, IF I could find a board since no-one is making them anymore, however I’m refusing to pay £100 for a used junk 2. Upgrade to Ryzen or 8700k - costly and for games like GR:W it offers a shabby single digit % in performance increase 4790k still offers very good punch and yes going with higher core alternatives would offer useful and noticeable extra frames that my monitor can display since it’s high-refresh rate. Also newer Intel CPUs will use solder TIM, which will improve single core speeds. Going to Ryzen from 4790k OC doesn’t make awful lot of sense. I’ve seen the benchmarks and for gaming even 8600k would make bigger difference. Could anyone provide provide a different angle on this to help me decide? Thank you.
