Basically cba building a new system cause I only recently bought new ram for my mobo and I'm running a 4th Gen i5. So was thinking about dropping the 4790k into the system but some people have been telling me it's a waste of money because the 7700k is cheaper. But for me to get the 7700k I will need to buy new ram and a mobo and I couldn't be bothered to build a new system up.

I believe there is nothing wrong with the 1060 6gb ?

Save your moneys for later and get the 4790k. Dont buy it brand new tho, no point. Used ones work the same. If youre happy with your mobo and whatnot and dont really need the newer gen tech you should not buy a new mobo just for the cpu if you can still upgrade your old one. Ive got a 4790k and works nicely paired with a 1080.

I totally agree with niskala. Stick to your old setup, and instead of a new 7700K, invest your money into a new GTX1080.
Check this bench.
Ofc, in the cpu oriented games gonna profit much more from your 7700K, but as you can see, there is only a minor diff, tho do a little dig on the net, and find a bench with a lower videocard.
The diff gonna be much more big then what you expect.
