True if those interest you, but it is kind of sad when one of the strongest arguments for a new processor is the chipset features rather than the cpu performance.But you wouldn't have the new boards/chipset/features if you bought Haswell...
I dont agree with the negativity of some posters regarding Skylake, but it is just "OK" for a tock (well really a tick plus a tock), and unfortunately requires fast, expensive ram for best performance, making the microcenter 4790k an even better deal relative to Skylake.
Point is, I would just wait a bit. I am sure prices will come down.
