Default Is it worth to change i5 4670k and z87..?

Hi guys in the advance sorry for my bad English.. I m from Croatia ( europe near Italy) Anyway I have



i5 4670k

Gigaybte Z87-HD3

Scythe Ashuru cooler



Is it worth to change that components for new Haswell refresh CPU-s? And new z97 chipset? When Intel hits the market (off course) is it worth to sell my "old" components and buy new?

No because they are simply that, refresh. Same thing with a smaller process. You'll gain no performance or feature benefits.

i was using a first gen i7 950. i had overclocked at 3.7 and was running everything just fine.
i upgraded to the 4670k with a MSI z87 G45 board and only did so because i had the money to do it not because i needed it. so that 4670k should last us both for few years.

thats really up to you that 4670k is still a newish processor.not sure how long is been out but i expect it to serve well for at least 2 to 3 years.
but if u have money blow on new hardware is really up to you.

Yes. It's literally a waste of money. It's the exact same thing as going from Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge (or a 2500k to 3570k). Sure the 3570k is 0-10% faster, but that is like trying to find a needle in a haystack compared in FPS. Refreshes aren't meant to bring that much in performance as they are just a die shrink. The platform exchange won't do you any business either.
