RussianSensation, with the price gouging on the 6700K we're seeing on Newegg, it's actually cheaper to get a 5820K.
That is the bonus I recently got when I upgraded from a 2500k to a 2600k. 400 more mhz per core of easy and stable overclock compared to my 2500k which helped the fps minimums even on older games. But I am not trying to pair that with a 980 ti level setup. If I did a platform upgrade I think something like a 5820k is more bang for the buck.
Even with a 2600K OC, I'd still get a single 980Ti or even a card 50% faster. Sure the latest CPUs are faster but crank on AA/higher IQ and you are again GPU limited in many games. I think you and I can coast to BW-E or SKL-E even.
