So I'm Currently running a Intel I7-4770k clocked@ 4.2GHZ on Asus MAXIMUS VI HERO. I have had for a few years i'm kicking around the idea of a possible upgrade, where do I go from here. most chips have about the same clock speed. I'm a Big time gamer just got a RTX 2080TI looking for a chip that might complement the video card. any ideas?

No, there is no better since you have the "k" model and you have good overclocking motherboard with 8+2 phases i would just oc the crap out of that thing and see if its enough for you. What cooler and psu you have? I havent overclocked lga1150 but if you have good cooling you should get that thing running 4.5ghz+

there are loads of guides, just remember you need good power supply and cooling before you disable any of the throttling features or higher your voltage too much.

EDIT: if you dont mind slight degration looks like people can hit even 5ghz with that chip which would be nice boost from 4.2ghz, only if you have good psu / cooling though you can test these higher 1.275-1.375vcore voltages

What resolution are you gaming at with the 2080Ti? At 4K or similar there probably isn’t much to gain from a cpu upgrade. However at lower resolutions there could be more material gains. To see gains you will also need a new motherboard and DDR4 RAM. With the new Ryzen 3000 launching in a few weeks it is best to wait for this before looking at options.

well I have been gaming at 2560*1440 with FPS@50/60 so not bad, but thanks for the advice.
