hi guys i recently got a system it here are the specs

*i5-4690k 2x8GB kingston fury hyperx ddr3 ram
*enrmax 650watt
*thermaltake NIC C5 CPU Cooler
*Power supply Aerocool xpredator x3 evil black gaming case

I was thinking of upgrading the CPU to a I7 4790k and i would of put the i5-4690k for sale i would get like £60 for it and i have some 8gb drr3 Ram at home already somewhere i could put that into the system totalling it to 16GB ddr3 ram also i would be hooking up my r9 390 8gb msi graphic card which i already have to the system. do you guys think its worth upgrading to a i7 4790k?.

How much does a used 4790k cost in your area? What GPU are you using?

It might be worth it, a 4790k is still a good CPU and a decent upgrade from the 4690k. But I would only pay so much. And depending on your GPU it may not benefit you all that much.

i think possibly i could get a i7 4790k for £150 and sell my i5 4690k for £60
well you get a some performance boost and hyperthreading, 4 cores 4 threads isnt cut out for modern stuff anymore, or at least is on the edge, the HT might give you a breathing room, overclock for a nifty 10% performance, if done right, and you can still get away with anything currently available.
