Is my i5 3570k enough to go with my new gtx 970?

I want to play most games on ultra. I have my 3570k overclocked to 4.2ghz and I have a little extra money, and I'm wondering if it's worth it to go for an i7 3770k. I don't edit videos, I just watch movies and play games. What are your thoughts?

    Stay with the 3570k. I have the same CPU also OC'ed to 4.2ghz with a gtx 970 and it runs great.

    Awesome! Thanks
  3. I also have i5-3570K (4GHz only) and then R9 280X. Games (also newest) are limitted by graphics card, not cpu.
    There is no need of i7-3770K.

    So GTX 970 will go fine with it :)
