I already own the 4670k @ 4.5ghz and a GTX 980 super clocked.

Should i upgrade to the 4790k for more fps ?

Thanks and regards.

The 4670k if overclocked (or even at stock) will most certainly not be the bottleneck of any gaming you do. No you do not need to upgrade. If you need more decoding or similar performance, I would still say no lol.
 
No, save your money.
The big advantage of a I7 is that it has hyperthreads, giving 8 threads.
But, few games can even use more than 2-3 threads, making the ectra threads mostly irrelevant.
The i7 is a better binned chip that has the potential for a bit higher overclock.
4.5 is a good overclock for either so there is no advantage there.

Most cases, your gaming will improve only through graphics card upgrades.
Even then, if you are gaming on a single monitor, the advantage of a second GTX980 is probably not worth it.
If you are looking at gaming(fast action shooters) on a 4k monitor or triple 1080P monitors, then dual cards are probably needed.
If you have the budget and the itch, how about a nice 2560 x 1600 monitor?

Thanks for the quick answers. As of now i got a 2560x1080 29'' lg monitor for movies and a 144hz asus monitor 1080p for gaming. Yeah the oc of the cpu is at 4.5ghz with 4.5cache as well. The GTX 980 is at 1495 clock as well 24/7 stable.
