I've not upgraded my CPU/Motherboard for the last 5 years and am looking to do so this Black Friday / Cyber Monday.
I currently have:
CPU: Intel Core i7 X 980 @ 3.33GHz
Motherboard: Rampage III Extreme
I'm planning to upgrade the CPU, Mobo and Memory.
I was thinking to switch to:
Intel Core i7-5930K @ 3.5GHz
ASUS Rampage V Extreme
But then Skylake came out. So now I'm between before mentioned and:
Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz.
ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO LGA 1151
The Rampage V and 5930K is a little pricy for me, so really leaning towards the Skylake.
Also, I saw that the ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII EXTREME came out. Is it really worth the additional $270???
This upgrade needs to last me a long time!
