Is my pc better than a console?

Hey, I was wondering is this better than a ps4 pro? These are my specs, I have a gtx 1070 and an i5 4670k 3.4 ghz oc'd to 4 and 16gb ddr3 1600mhz ram. So could anyone help me?

    Specs here.
  2. Better than a PS4 Pro by a mile, they use roundabout tricks to get a 4k resolution upscaled, a $400 GPU is going to outperform a $400 console any day.

    Ok it was clearly just a joke, i know its 10x better than a console, the real thing I am going to ask for, should I upgrade my cpu (4670k) to i7 7700k? or amd ryzen 1800x? I don't do any content and 7700k is cheaper, I also have to upgrade my mobo during that and maybe 32gb of ddr4? should i get ddr4 that is the question?
  4. It depends on your purpose. If you only plan on playing games and general use, get the 7700k. If you plan on playing games and using it for productivity, get the Ryzen 1800X. You should get ddr4 as it is a lot faster and reliable than ddr3.

    Honestly going for the 7700k is a waste of money for the performance you're getting.
    Maybe a 4790k and save on board / ram.

    32GB Ram is not necessary, 16GB is more than enough. I have never seen any gaming + multitasking scenario using more than 12GB
  6. I second Isokolon. Getting the 4790k is much more fiscally sensible, and the increases (likely 5-10% CPU performance) from the 4790k to the 7700k aren't worth the added $300-400 investment for new a board and RAM.

    Not to mention, if you're primary use is gaming, more games max out the GPU first than CPU.
  7. I think that in the future i will get the i7 7700k as i do play csgo alot. thanks for the good answers!
  8. For csgo the 7700k will make literally no difference.
    Csgo doesn't scale well over more threads and is heavy on 2-3 cores tops.
    Your current i5 will give you almost if not de facto identical performance in a now 4-5 years old game.
    You'd need games that actually use all the threads like BF1 for example to see an improvement moving to an i7.
    While we're talking i7s, the difference between a 4790k Vs. A 7700k in games is minimal. You're looking at an improvement of 5-10 FPS for the costs of 600$

    Idk how it was clearly a joke seeing as it was the only point made in the title and description.....
    If there was a bigger question to the discussion why not just put it in the original post? T.T

    In my country the 4790k and 7700k are exactly the same price 7700k 10 euros more, and it is future proof, so why not go with it?
  11. Buying the 7700k requires you to buy a new board (150-200€) + new RAM (100€)

    I don't see how the 7700k is more future proof as when Intel sizes down to 10nm you'd need a new board anyway
    With the performance differences being minor. I find it hard to justify splashing that cash.
    With csgo i find it hard to justify an i7.

    Of course it's your decision and your money
    In my opinion it's just wasting a lot of money that you can surely spend somewhere else
  12. Ditto.
    If you're only playing CS:GO you don't need any more than an i5, hell an i3 would probably perform similarly.
  13. My friend will buy my old board + ram and cpu for 230euros so I think I will be good, Also i kinda did misinform as CSGO is not my only game I play. I play some triple a games too like witcher 3 etc
