4790k vs 6700k Upgrade

I'm stuck between the two CPU's for an upgrade. I use my computer 70% of the time for gaming. The kicker between the two is one I feel like I would be seriously future proofing myself with a 6700k/MB/DDR4 upgrade for 600$ though the improvements for gaming are slim from a 4790k. On the other hand since my budget kinda ended up around 600 with the 6700k I could have what I see as a valuable upgrade with a 4790k/1TB Sdd/ Corsair H80i V2. I'm stuck between the two. Is my 4790k upgrade a better bang for the buck, or should I do 6700k upgrade and be ready with new sockets and chipset.

Wait until January if you aren't going enthusiast (6800k+)

What is your current setup though?

If you can wait for next gen I would, otherwise go with the 6700k.

I mainly want an upgrade for BF1. Being clocked at 4.2 i only pull an average of 30fps with too many hiccups and stutter for anyones taste. I had planned on something like this since I built it in 08/15. This upgrade will be happening next Monday

Another motive for wanting an i7 was becuase in the near future I would like either like to SLI or get a much beefier GPU. The g3258 was just to get csgo running and surprisingly many other games. So I'm kinda leaning on a board upgrade more just for future proofing but I dont see a major leap big enough to do a board upgrade and CPU
