What resolution are you playing at between both platforms for you to say no difference? I'm keen to cause not sure to upgrade 6700k to 9700k/9900k?

Thanks!
1080p

You can monitor CPU and GPU usage to decide which to upgrade. The 9th series look interesting though, if the rumors about performance are accurate.

It depend on the titles you play and work you do.

For instance, if you are looking to play common esports or mmo titles with 144HZ monitor. Your setup will require better CPU to sustain minimum 144 fps as these titles often do not benefit from an even better GPU once the has been reached.

Other 'hardcore gamer' titles like battlefield you probably want a better GPU to be able to attain higher framerates.

In the case which you are into productivity, you could consider a ryzen cpu/mb + ram to improve your compiling, enconding or decrypting times.. whichever you work on.

If you are into heavy multitasking like my friend and play games while compiling his videos.. may consider ryzen too as it has great multicore price / performance ratio.

Hope this is useful for you.

h97m pro4 is the model of a particular Asrock MB. You can also consider Z87 or Z97 for OC.

monitor is the deciding factor before the next upgrade...in addition what you need to do with your rig is another consideration

Setup as shown.

CPU + MOBO: intel i7 4770k + asrock h97m pro4
RAM: Corsair vengeance 4gb ddr3 x2
GPU: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1060 6GB

is it worth SLI or upgrades

currently running AIO for cpu cooler and aircooled.
Definitely upgradable! I upped my ram to 16gb, increased overclock to 4.4ghz, got the biggest gaming utrawide monitor I could find and a 1080ti. big difference in games and immersion!

currently running AIO for cpu cooler and aircooled.
1) Upgrade RAM to 16gb (all same spec if running 4x4gb)
2) OC CPU, you using AIO, so should have good cooling for OC?
3) Wait for price drop to see if want to change GPU
4) Upgrade to 34" monitor
