Re: New PC Build – going Haswell!

I planned on upgrading to skylake as well, but my rig runs fine now for all my needs. My next upgrade will target running a VR system. I recently had the opportunity to try an HTC Vive, and that **** is the ****! But I'll wait until prizes are more reasonable, and until more VR applications and games are available; I'm thinking maybe a year?

Re: New PC Build – going Haswell!

I've got a Skylake, wouldn't really bother upgrading to it if you've got a decent Haswell going on

I'm running a an i7-6700k into a Gigabyte board with wifi and some decent 256GB SSD w/ 16GB RAM. No gaming, runs a couple QHD displays. Mostly use for my home office & home recording studio. Obviously kills it for those purposes.

What you might consider instead of upgrading the CPU and all of that, is overspending a bit on one of the hot new cards like the 1080. That should last you a good while and run your VR within your current system.

Re: New PC Build – going Haswell!

Rig updates, new case on the way and just installed the following:
i7 kaby lake 7700k
Asus Maximus IX hero
Evga ddr4 16gb 3200

Rgb lighting looks great already and can sync with rgb fans that are coming with the corsair case. Kaby lake overclocked conservatively to 4.8ghz and stable. Gonna see what the price is on 1080ti vs titan xp in march and will hope there is a turn key waterblock version.

Not sure if OP is around anymore but just installed 1080ti that arrived this morning and 4k is much smoother. Plans are to install ekwb blocks this summer with green dye
