So I just finished building my buddy a new PC (Core i5-6600K, RX480, 16GB DDR4), and it got me in the mood to give my computer some tender lover and care.
In doing so, I swapped out my GTX 780 for a MSI GTX 1070, and also bought 2 SSD drives. (Samsung 850 EVO 500GB for Games and Software, and a Corsair Force-LE 250GB for the O/S)
But I feel like my current LGA 1366 is inevitably holding back my system. I am in no rush at all to upgrade my Mobo/CPU/Ram, I figure at the earliest it'll be early next year, this gives me time to save for a 4K monitor..etc ...
So I know Kaby Lake is coming later this year, but then it looks like Cannonlake will be out second half of next year that uses a 10nm process instead of 14nm like Skylake and Kaby Lake.
I guess my question is, hearing that Kaby Lake and Cannonlake are going to be relatively similar (LGA 1151, 200-Series Chipset) ... would you upgrade early next year when Kaby Lake is out, or hold off till Cannonlake comes out later next year?
...And how long do you think I can keep going with my current CPU (see signature) before it really bottlenecks my system? Like, should I even attempt to get a 4K monitor on this setup? I was thinking possibly
getting another GTX 1070 to support playing games @ 4K on Max when the time comes for a 4K monitor. I just don't know if I should do 4K Monitor/2nd 1070 1st, or upgrade the Mobo/CPU/Ram 1st?
Oh, and here's the computer I was just building. It's finished now (Just got the RX480 yesterday), but no finished pics.
