I've come down with upgraditis pretty bad, but I'm not sure if I should upgrade right now or wait a few months. At this point the primary focus of this computer is gaming - lots of Arma 3, some TF2, R6 siege, fall out 4, etc. My main rig currently has: Mobo: Asrock x79 Extreme 3 CPU: 3930k @4.7ghz Ram: 32gb PC3-12800 (running this at rated speeds) GPU: Asus GTX1080 Strix OC I've been looking at the z170 boards paired with an i5 6500k as my budget friendly option (I've got a 4 1/2 week old son now, so my hobby has to take a back seat to essentials my wife finds, like a bluetooth enabled rocking cradle thing that plays music) since the total number of PCIe lanes really doesn't seem that important to me (I will NEVER run multiple cards again. Been there, done that, and I'm just not interested in doing it again.) But looking at benchmarks, I'm worried it might be a lateral move or even a downgrade from my current setup. Yes I want nvme support and usb 3.1, but not SO bad that I'm willing to pay a few hundred dollars to get worse performance. Which leads me to the X99 route - I could also pick up a used x99 board and an i7 5820k (or if it's really worth the extra cost a 6800k) but that's a lot of money (to me at least) and again I'm not sure it's a huge upgrade. I REALLY don't want to upgrade to x99 now only to have X100 (or whatever, you get my point) show up in 6 months. I don't NEED to upgrade right now, so I really don't want to blow my upgrade money on a chipset that's on its way out. TLDR: Is there a logical upgrade from a 3930k @ 4.7ghz that isn't likely to be yesterday's tech in the next 6 months to a year?
