I've only built a handful of rigs in the past and, while I love technology and the research just as much as the building, I'm not one to fuss with overclocking, tuning, or dealing with watercooling.
What I'm looking for is an Intel based rig using Nvidia supporting G-Sync for up to 3-monitors without having to fuss with overclocking, etc. Sure, the part could support that option, but I want to spend my time gaming and editing video vs. tuning the machine. Questions for the forum:
My current build includes a i5-3570k Ivy Bridge @ 3.4Ghz, 16GB DDR3 RAM, and GeForce 680. Does upgrading to x99 or Skylake provide enough bang for the buck?
If so, which option would you recommend (x99 or Skylake)?
Regarding GPU, would a bump to GTX 950 be sufficient, or, would a leap to 980ti be worth my while?
