I've dug up an old i7 4770 from a desktop that hasn't been used for over a year. The motherboard has enough pcie slots to accomodate my 1070 and elgato hd60 pro, so I'm wondering if the 4770 would be better for streaming pc and console games over my i5 6600k. I had terrible luck In the silicon lottery and my i5 can't even hit 4ghz anyway. I also have 16gb of ddr3 in quad channel vs 8gb ddr4 in single channel, and I've heard multi channel ram benefits Overwatch, the primary game I play. Is it worth the swap? This is only until next year once I can get a new 8600k/8700k so I don't care how pretty it is.
