Even X99 was in my mind just to have it all but I don't render or have heavy HT programs...

All I use is the adobe suite for graphic design and games and remote support... so I might aswell get the 6600K .

In my opinion its only worth getting the i7 if you really will use the extra 20% like mentioned earlier... and if you do heavy rendering you will go to the x99 anyway... but some people are even saying get the X99 for future and games... but when?? I would like to see the FPS difference in any game, it will give you what 20more frames?

Fortunately, I can take my time with this build and collect the parts slowly, since I already have a built system and in no hurry to build a separate one. I've been reading and see the same thing about going with the 5820K, so I am torn. Therefore, I will continue to read on these processors and eventually decide.

With the price gouging going on right now, the 6700K is ~$120 more than the 6600K. That's a nearly 50% price premium. Yes, it will be faster in general, but probably not enough to be justified for most people. My opinion is that now is a pretty bad time to be investing in a high-end system without a very specific use case. Neither X99 nor Z170 is ideally suited for the growing proliferation of GPU and SSD PCIe bandwidth demands, and what will actually be important in games with DX12 and VR still isn't clear. The 6600K is nicely positioned to get you some of the benefits of the newer platform without being so dearly priced that you can't replace it in a few years if something truly compelling happens in the HEDT segment or gaming shifts to significantly benefiting from HT or 6+ cores. Just don't get roped into a $300 motherboard; it isn't worth it for this platform. People are overclocking the 6600K to within a couple hundred MHz of the i7. That's without HT, but for workloads that don't use it it's close enough to make the i7 a really hard sell. An NVMe SSD that's 4-5x faster than SATA seems like a lot more bang-for-the-buck today.

Yeah thats exactly what I was thinking also, I will build it with th 6600K and a nice NVMe SSD when the Samsung Pro comes out. If it later really shifts towards alot of benefits of HT or 6+ cores I can always upgrade to the i7 or some new processors come out. And the X99 I think is only worth it if you really need a video/rendering machine and not from a longterm standpoint.

So I already got my parts earlier 6600K+ Asus Hero VIII and some good corsair ram smile.gif Going to get the samsung SSD with it comes out and I should be nicely going for some time. And might spend some money on a widescreen instead!

I just don't know yet what GFX I want to get because I am planning to get a curved monitor maybi the acer. So I get atleast nice frame rate on that.
