Hey guys, so I am planning to potentially upgrade/start a new build this summer, this is the gear I am currently using: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/fd4pXL Basically a H57 chipset mobo, i7 860 2.8Ghz CPU, 16gb 1600Mhz ram, Radeon HD 7870 2gb Ghz edition
I was considering either jumping straight to a Skylake build i5 6600 (k or non-k) and a GTX970 Or going for the most recent haswell i5. Either way I'd need a new mobo it's just whether I'd have to replace the ram or not.
On the other hand, do you think my current build would last me another year or two when prices have dropped a little more?
I mainly use my pc for uni work/gaming FYI
Any other info you'd like, please let me know
