Hey guys,

Ive been thinking about upgrading my GPU recently...

My current setup: CPU: I7 4790K
MBO: Gigabyte Z97x Gaming 5
GPU: Gigabyte GTX 970

Is this setup worth upgrading to something like RTX 2070 Super or should I wait for a bit longer
and make a completely new build with the newer generation CPU, MBO, RAM and so on?

Are you noticing stutters aswell during gameplay under such resolution? if so you might need a new CPU too, preferably 6 or more cores.

RTX 2070S are great but quite pricey, are you interested in Radeon graphics? if you do, i'd recommend RX 5700 XT that you can find mostly under $450.

I have EVGA Supernova G2 which is 750W so that´s ok... yeah I was also thinking about RX5700 XT but I can get better price for the 2070 S but I´ll think about it... I guess I haven´t really noticed major stutters with the CPU... it´s still a beast but I am not sure if it wouldn´t bottleneck the new GPU ...
 
WORTH is something only YOU can determine.

Likely, a graphics upgrade is in order.
Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu is strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you are likely more cpu limited.
