Currently I'm running a GTX 970 with an i5-4670k. I want to upgrade my CPU and had plans on buying the i7 8700k ( I know I need new RAM and a mobo). My question is, will I run into problems with my 970 and an 8700k. My gpu is still relatively new and I don't really want to have to upgrade it at least for another year.
My son's 2500K (OC 4.2) is bottleneck GTX970. Do you OC your 4670K? If not, you should OC first if you have Z mobo Download MSI afterburner and monitor CPU/GPU/RAM usage to see if your CPU is bottleneck. He upgraded recently to i7 8700 with Z370 AsRock Killer, 16G, and now his GTX970 max out 100%.
