If you have the money and you want to, go for it. There's no real need to..

Don't the new chipsets support 5th gen processors as well as Haswell?

Yep, but I'm assuming he already has the Z87 GD-65. Z87 also supports the locked Haswell Refresh, but you need 97 to use Devil's Canyon

Ah ok, you mentioned "change" so I thought you had the Z87 and wanted to upgrade. If you're going Z97, I'd wait for the 4790k to come out.
