And even with http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-7700K-vs-Intel-Core-i5-6400/3647vs3512 telling you it's a nice bump up I think if you are still on HDD it's time to move to SSD. That would be a cheaper move with nice time reductions in all areas.
So I have been playing on a gaming pc for 3 years now (give or take). Only upgraded once to get a new graphics card. I believe it's time to upgrade and this is the component I am looking to get.
CPU: i5 6400
GPU: Gtx 1050 TI Strix 4gb
RAM: 2x8gb 2133MHz
Motherboard: ASUS B150m-a
Storage: 1tb HDD
Power: 500W power supply
So I really want to upgrade my CPU since I've been getting a lot more into editing and recording. I've been using programs that make life hard for my pc sometimes. So a CPU upgrade was the first thing that came to my mind and after scouting the web a bit, I've found the i7-7700K. A really good and solid CPU it seems (correct me if it's overkill or I am completely wrong, haha)
But that means I have to upgrade my motherboard as well.... right?? That's when I get unsure about what to get and cooling and all that.
If anyone could use some time to find a reasonably priced upgrade for my system I would be very happy. I am not looking to spend a lot of money, most of the money I want to spend is on the CPU itself.
The CPU costs 370$ where I live and don't really want to spend more than 500$
My preferably budget is 450$, but I will do what it takes to get my pc back up and running
