I'd hold onto it until SkyLake-E in 2017. Your 3770K has good single core performance and 4c 8t is enough for the forseeable.

Broadwell-E is just a tick, I'd go with a 5820K if you're wanting to upgrade right now. The SOC champion and RVE are among the top X99 motherboards if you want to spend the money, but the Asus X99-A is a nice cheaper board.

Any specific reason why you want to get more core? If you can wait... wait. If you can't buy now. I would check the used market at this point. Even after the release of the new gen, pretty sure you could grab some nice deals. The only hardware I would buy new is the motherboard for the warranty.

it's not much of an upgrade at all speaking of performance, with one exception that you need more pcie lane for your other expansion cards, like sound card or another graphics card. I just upgraded my system because my z87 won't suppose nvme m.2 ssd, other than that, 5820k won't have any significant impact in the performance, i would suggest as Yuhfhrh, it's probably better to wait for the skylake-e with an newer chipset like z199x or z299x, or whatever

I start medical school in 2017 so i wont be spending much time fiddling with my computer.

Main reason I wanted my last computer to be complete overkill since I wont be building a new one till forever.

yea, that sucks, you won't have much time at all after you start medical school i guess. In that case, through whatever you can at it, probably wait for a couple months for the broadwell-e, and a nice motherboard to combo with it. should last you longer than you need it to be.

6-core Skylake-E is definitely the one to wait for if you want a big performance upgrade.

However the Kaby lake 7th gen quad core i7 looks very promising too.

If you don't want to wait until 2017 to build your next computer, a 7th gen i7 offers a huge amount of future proofing.
6 or 8 cores will only really help with speeding up video editing for professional users. Or things like virtual machines and large file size encryption.

For the rest of us even a 7th gen i5 K-series will probably be future proofed for 4K gaming haha.

Upgrade a few months before you start and work out any problems imo. I'm in my first year of medical school right now and on X58 still, and have been wanting to upgrade. Upgrade bug is biting me hard and I get distracted by OCN threads at times lol.
