    Hi all, it's been a few years now since my last mobo/cpu/ram upgrade would it be worth going to X99 now or just wait until the next X Platform kind of got that upgrade itch:)

    No man, you dont need an upgrade anytime soon. Maybe Skylake E in 2 years...

    its not like 10 years ago every 9 months something new wich blows the previous hardware away, i'm stil on my old 3930k i use my 4790k mostly for testing.although i could easily buy X99 i'm going to wait like others say overhere about skylake-e and just see what it will bring.But if you can't resist the ''itch'' then do it ;)

    Yeah dude, your rig is totally outdated. Here's your buying list:

    [CPU] Core i7 5960X Extreme Edition BOX
    [MoBo] X99S GAMING 9 ACK
    [RAM] Corsair CMD128GX4M8B2800C14

    Hope it will cure your itch, Kappa.
