It is better for sure, but not enough to warrant an upgrade. If you are going to upgrade I would get enough for a 1070 to make it worthwhile.
Its not a case of your CPU being outdated, the 7700 isnt newer, its just that the faster clock speed, hyperthreading makes it much more suitable for streaming (and can take much faster graphics cards without bottlenecking.
