Found one review about i7 4770K vs i7 8700K. Read it and make up your mind. https://www.techspot.com/review/1526-intel-4th-gen-core-i7-vs-8th-gen/

If I were you, either update the GPU to rtx2080 or 2080ti.

That would be a solution to pair it with a z390. I forgot it was released

Also @cin i've seen that article and my cpu is on the 30% that can't reach 4.5...i've tried it but best that i can do with him is 4ghz overclocked with no bsods.
Also i don't think is worth it to upgrade from 1080 to 2080.
For a CPU that i have for 5 years i think is decent but i need a fresh one :) .

I’m running a 4770k oc to 4ghz, just got the 2080ti. For 4K I’ll get 60fps, I’m maxed with a 60hz tv... I’d suggest the GPU upgrade, that’ll get you by for awhile... metro exodus calls for a 4770k. Unless you have a high refresh rate I don’t think a cpu mobo and ram will benefit you too much, you may see some slow down as opposed to 8700k but I think it’s fine for now.
