Running a 2k monitor with a GTX1080 MSI - I do a lot of video editing, animation, print design, graphic design as well as heavy coding activities but also a nice chunk of gaming.



Should i stick with my current CPU or upgrade to the 770k or something else?

if you do go for the 7700K, you're going to need new board and ram. How much are you looking to spend? You should also state your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Please include the make and model of the PSU, wattage isn't all that is necessary for a build.
