Dont the i5 is probably the best cpu for gaming out at the moment there is no need to upgrade I would only recommend upgrading if you were doing somthing other than gaming you can research this else were and you will get the same answer for a long time that cpu will not bottleneck any cards right now one option you do have tho is to invest in a good cooler study up on some simple and safe overclocking maybe get ya clocks up to 4.2ghz but I certainly wouldn't recommend wasting you money if ur talking about upgrading for gaming reasons hope that helps :)

I wouldn't. But if you want to game across 3 monitors then yeah. However, you would need more than a 780ti to pull good fps on High/Ultra settings.

Just so you know it's i7 4790 without the K, so you can't overclock it.
