Need help on upgrading!!

So I have been putting money aside to upgrade a few things. I am debating if upgrading my cpu would be worth it. I know the i5 4460 is still a decent processor but I am no expert. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

You should only upgrade if something doesn't perform as good as you want it to be. Because as i see it your build still looks great. But ofcourse its your call ;)

If you do upgrade you CPU, I recommend going Skylake but you will also have to upgrade the RAM as well as the motherboard along with it. If you want to stay on the LGA 1150 socket, upgrading the CPU wouldn't really be worth it as something like the 4690 is only about 10% better the the 4460.

Think I should just wait a few years when it becomes more of a necessity?
