Updating an old server that hosts 30 email accounts and 5 sites - one of which will have a woocommerce store with 5k items.
Currently has ASUS P6T Deluxe V2, i7 920, 6gb ddr3 with 2x 1tb 7200rpm in raid 1. Was going to replace the drives with evo 850 pro's..but after realizing im working with 6-7yr old hardware would a 6700k setup show noticable improvement?

it depends, is your cpu being capped out? only reason it would help is if your clients are waiting on the cpu to get their information.

No its not, I just figured since i'm replacing the drives/reinstalling software now would be the best time to swap hardware if necessary to future proof a bit.
