Worth Upgrading My PC?

Hey All,

I built my PC couple years ago and use it to mainly play COD:MW, Battlefield, War Thunder, etc. and basic computer use. Was just curious if it's worth upgrading any parts of my PC? If so, what do you recommend if something should be upgraded? My specs are below. Thanks for the input!

CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5 GHz Quad-Core Processor CPU Cooler: CRYORIG H7 49 CFM CPU Cooler Motherboard: Asus Z170 PRO GAMING ATX LGA1151 Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB Superclocked Gaming ACX 3.0 Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA GS 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Case: Fractal Design Define R4 ATX Mid Tower Case

so it used to be not worth it, but honestly the i7-6700k on ebay is 75 bucks right now. I think if you went from 4 to 8 threads you would notice a big difference alone. The rest is fine.

I wouldn't need to replace the motherboard to do this?

Thanks

No, both are 6th gen Intel parts.

i would jump on that cpu fast, they are not going to stay for sale at that price for long. it would be worth to upgrade at that price. heck sell your i5-6600k and you probably would make a profit
