Hey all, I am currently in the process of changing out my dated x6 1055t AMD and thinking of moving to the i7 4790k. I know this is a big step because I will need to change the mobo too. I have a Gigabyte 270x Factory OC and I have noticed my CPU tends to be the one bringing my framerates down. After researching and noticing that AMD CPU's dont do as great as Intel I decided to change. My biggest question is mainly for Starcraft. I play it not so much but watch alot of replays. The game is CPU dependent but only at most dualcore. On the AMD X6 1055t OC'd to 3.5 I am hitting super lows during big battles and its quite annoying. Like going from 80fps to 20 sometimes lower. And it stays there till most of the units disappear. Will the i7 4790k do the job? Does anyone know which systems ESL or Intel Extreme Masters use? I see streams too and they dont seem to hit the lows I get. Also do you think that getting a z97 board will be good for future use as in maybe getting an i5 now and then a 5th Gen i7 later? Thanks and also I wish this site would post per cpu when reviewing a GPU. plus SC2 sometimes! haha!
