So I'm getting the I7 4790k for my first Intel, and I can eventually upgrade to Broadwell.
Is Broadwell supposed to be good? Because I :)  know the Fx 8350 am3+ line is dead and can't really upgrade from there. Also I mainly do ultra heavy gaming with graphics on ultra with a gtx 770, and possibly video editing later on. So I'm wondering if this is a good choice?
You may have noticed me posting a lot about this, but im new to PCs.

More about : 4790k broadwell

It's a good path to travel, I picked up the Z97 Hero which I'll pair with either the 46 or 4790K when released (currently playing with it with a spare 4770K, and I plan to upgrade it to Broadwell when released

I hope Broadwell will be a good upgrade

I'm hoping so, the Z97 mobos are an improvement over the Z87, and the refresh K model CPUs are suppose to be stronger, so hoping those improvements will aid in the development of Broadwell

seems like a waste to jump so quickly from an i7 4770k to 4790k to then broadwell all within in the span of what 6 months?

For many, I agree, building rigs is part of my business so people want to see the latest, when I can, I try and keep my rigs changing

Makes sense in that case. part of me is tempted to upgrade from the i7 4770k to 4790k but I'm just going to hold off and wait for broadwell. I upgraded to a z97 board from a z87 for the sake of selling my used gene vi b4 it was worth not nearly what I paid..but such is the way with computer parts in general.

Yep, never know what will happen, I picked up a 280X when they were first released and two months later, when the bit coin miners went crazy on those sold it for right at $100 more than they were released at

I wish I would have stocked up on DDR3 RAM. My 4x4GB kit i bought over a year ago sells for double now. Microcenter has been good to me though..I live 10 minutes from one. They had $50 off coupons for i7 4770k @259.95 so I snagged 3 @ 210/per and sold for $315 each.
