That XB271HU @2560x1440 looks interesting for the price. I'm not quite ready for 4K yet, the cards to run it properly cost to much.
The Z35 looks awesome but if I buy something like that I won't have the money for the rig to display on it.Smile I do like the curved display though.
I'm currently undecided on what to put in my brand new case and 850 watts psu. Skylake or x99 system. It's been sitting on my closet for 5 months.
They seem to cost about the same. I'm also going to buy my first SSD drive, finally! It's a ground up build.

Let's join me with boycotting Skylake!!!  One of Intel's reps said that it would be the most significant uarch improvement in the past 10 years of Intel's cpu tech (since Core2), but it's not even as much of an improvement as Haswell was over Ivy Bridge, let alone Broadwell over Haswell (at least for gaming with Broadwell). 

Kaby Lake will finally have the same L4 edram cache as Broadwell, but I think it'd be at least 9 months from now before we see this. 

X99 would be better than Skylake anyway, since the 6-core haswell-e is only $380 now, it's only $30 more than the 6700K, and you can overclock the hell out of the i7-5820K to within about 200-300Mhz of the overclock that the Skylake is capable of, while having the benefits of quad-channel bandwidth.  Unless you plan on upgrading the Z170 platform to Kaby Lake, it seems that Haswell-E is more future-proof than Skylake.

The 5820 is 300$ but its a power hog and those clocks are not as common. I don't think the newer Broadwelll-E or Skylake -E will use the same socket. So its a dead end platform.

The Z170 platform has some nice motherboards and features but the 6700k is more expensive than the 5820k.
It also will see at least one cpu refresh.

tough choices

But happy, you need to look around. x86 CPUs are barely moving forward yr over yr. That haswell "dead end" platform will be extremely powerful and relevant for yr and yrs to come. You could eventually pick up an 8 core 16 thread cpu for it, used xeon or something.

But even if you dont get anything other cpu for that platform down the road, the haswell E 6 core today would be faster and more powerful that the 6700k as well as the skylake quads. The overclocked 5820k/5830k tops them all. Considering the pathetic 2-5% performance increases, do you really think that the tick or tock is going to be anything significant at all?

As time passes, ever more powerful x99 cpus will come down in price. It is not such a dead end when you think about it

But Broadwell is compatible on the same socket, on X97 mobos..  so why not Broadwell-E on X99 LGA-2011? 

If you just want the gaming throne for now, while sticking to 4c/8t cpus, just go with the ordinary Broadwell..  which is FASTER than Skylake for most games out there, despite lower clocks (and overclocking the Broadwell all the way from 3.4 to 4.2GHz makes it that much faster than Skylake oc'ed to 4.6-4.7GHz).  Yep, the Crystal Well is magic for some games..   Would we really be seeing Broadwell-E's though, anyway?  I think Intel might just move onto Skylake-E, and continue on without the L4 edram cache for enthusiast 6-8 core CPUs. 

BTW, are you talking about B&M Microcenter for the 5820K at $300?  It's like at least $380 everywhere else.

yes the microcenter deal for 300$.

But , I just bought a brand new GIGABYTE GA-Z170XP-SLI (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 board for 110$ shipped off a guy.
For the price I couldn't resist. normally 146$.

Looking at ram, coolers and cpu's as I type this.

this cooler..Corsair H110i GT
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...-_-Product

Looking at this memory ..G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6820231878

Think the 6600k is good enough for now? 4c/4t now and the refresh 7600k 4c/8t in 2 years or so and sell the 6600k? or just go all out and grab a 6700k now?

A 4c/8t 7600k will be LGA 1151 compatible?

Yes, the 6700K is LGA 1151.

Sorry for late reply - was gone for Labor Day weekend.  Hmm, yeah, I'd just go for 4c/4t for now, unless you're playing a game that really needs more than 4 threads.  And then upgrade to an 8t Kaby Lake as soon as it comes out, and sell the 4t. 

Good thing that Intel's CPUs do not really go down in price at all after over 1 year.  The resale value can actually be higher than Microcenter's price!
