You would not only run into the fun of reinstalling Windows, License issues and DRIVER HELL it's been shown that changing a motherboard is not the path to performance. Long ago tests were run and the results were close enough to be attributed to human error (yes, HAL 9000, yes.)
The i7 4790K is a fine CPU and for games you get a better GPU. The other area is to eject HDDs and install SSDs.
There is no need to change the motherboard or CPU today. Just get it the usual 8 to 16GB RAM, nice GPU and SSD.
So, I currently have a GIGABYTE H1... whatever crappy motherboarf (1150) with an I7-4790k (1150). My question goes like this:
Should I by a new, better MoBo with 1150 socket and keep my current i7
Sell my MoBo and CPU combo then buy a same kind of CPU and a better MoBo with 1151 socket (more expensive).
My goal is to upgrade my computer.
Is the 1150 outdated?
Should I upgrade to 1151 socket for the future upgrades or it dosen’t matter
