I currently have a 6 year old i5-3470 3.2ghz prosessor, with 8gb og ddr3 ram 1600Mhz. Im looking to upgrade my system, and was thinking about the i5-8600k with The asrock z370 ekstreme 4 mobo and 16gb of 2666mhz ddr4 ram. This upgrade would cost around 740$ in my country. So Im wondering how much of a difference Will this upgrade do for gaming, like fps in moderen games. Btw I have a gtx 970, looking to upgrade it somewhere in the future.
Thanks for all answers!

Yea I see, But I cant really also afford a new gpu at this moment, so would you say my gtx 970 is getting bottlenecked by the i5-3470 or not? If not, is there really a point of doing the upgrade before I can afford a new gpu?
 


A slight bottleneck at times with the 3470 , but overall it's a good pairing.
 

Yep, I agree
