Sandy Bridge to Skylake has 30% IPC increase. So if gaming is your concern, better spend the money on a better GPU and/or a higher resolution monitor.

Depends on several factors. For example what kind of games do you play, is maxing graphic settings important, do you pay child support, etc. etc.

I would probably just sell those two 660s and get a single 980 and call it a day for another two years.

This, and maybe a new case with more updated features if budget allows/you wanted to.

Your set up is very good as is, but if you need a reason to upgrade, id say get a higher res monitor. Go 1440p. You'll can finally push those 660ti's. Its a worthwhile jump imo.

a 32 inch screen is too big for 1440P as the pixels gets too spread out so the picture will look ugly.
The best size for 1440P is around a 27 inch.

The Asus MG279Q or the new Asus PG279Q would be better gaming monitors.
