I have the following setup:

I7-4790K
Asus Maximus Impact VII Motherboard
16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport
Geforce GTX 970
Samsung 950 Pro 512GB M.2 SSD

Just wondering if i should even consider any upgrade at this point? My needs are video encoding, video content creation, standard stuff (i.e.: email, web, etc..), and no gaming (no time anymore, but when this machine was built I did, LOL)

I cant see going to a Skylake Platform as I think it is more of a lateral move. Perhaps an X99 setup? I would appreciate your thoughts.

Thank you

I would wait until the next offerings from AMD and Intel and then upgrade to more cores.
Skylake and X99 are already old at this point.
