So the title says it all but i am going to give some details... So i am thinking of upgrading my i5 to and higher end processor so this operation would propably cost me around 600€ (new processor + mobo + rams) (i have a lga1150 hence the new mobo) so would it be worth going from an i5 4670k to i7 6700k? And to clear things up, i7 for streaming & gaming use :) would my fps rise up tremendously and be able to raise my stream settings abit? if there is a better solution please share! and if you could give me ideas what mobo and rams to get also would be really appreciated!

Here are my specs:
ASUS STRIX GTX 1060
Intel Haswell i5-4670K 3.4GHz @4.30GHz
Gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI Z87 DDR3 mITX
Kingston HyperX 2x4GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9
Kingston 120GB HyperX 3K SSD
Corsair 600W CX M Builder Series ATX
Cooler Master Seidon 120XL Watercooling

Having an I7 while streaming is always quite a large benefit, if you steam games like fall out and GTA V then you will see a fairly significant jump in performance from the above mentioned update. personally I would do it as for your situation I believe it would be a good investment. also you should grab some more RAM go up to 16gb with the DDR4 :D

just add more ram , for streaming a minimum of 16gb is need ..DDR4 is not better or faster then DDR3

instead of changing your mobo and ram..keep it and get a i7 4770k instead
