I've been running an A10-6800k at 4.7ghz for a couple of years and slowly started upgrading parts, first was an R9 280 and I would love to eventually buy a 4690k when I have the money.
My question is, would a G3258 oc'd to 4.5 be an upgrade/downgrade for the time being and to get me into a good Z97 board with room for improvement later on?
At the moment I'm playing Arma 3 multiplayer a lot and it seems to favour fast single core performance which is obviously lacking in the 6800k, I'm just not entirely sure whether or not it will be a worthy change other than the fact of having a vastly superior upgrade path.
There seems to be no benchmarks for Arma 3 multiplayer, only singleplayer, that I can find to compare the G3258 to what I'm currently getting with the 6800k.
I'm aware that I would sometimes lose out in heavily threaded applications but as I said, Arma 3 is probably 90% of the systems use.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
