Hi,

In the process of upgrading my system with either dual Fury X or 980 Ti for running a 4K monitor.
I don't want bottle-necks. My noob-question is - how much further can i push by upgrading my system if I was to upgrade from a 1150 to 1151 using parts below?
I'll be using the system for heavy power hungry CAD as well as gaming at 60 Hz FPS games.

Mobo
Asus Z87 Deluxe (1150) - > Asus Z170


CPU
I7-4770 3.5Ghz -> Intel Core i7-6700K


Memory
DDR 3 - > DDR 4


Many thanks for input.

I'd imagine that the upgrade would improve CAD performance, but I have no idea if it would be enough to justify the upgrade. For gaming, the 4770 is still a great chip, and you won't likely notice a difference there. Biggest thing for gaming is the GPU(s).
