    100% and honestly, if I had a 2600k I wouldn't be looking to upgrade, most likely. Even my 2500k does extremely well in most games, it's just that the game I'm playing atm (BDO) struggles with 4c/4t and the drawback of slow ram (1600mhz).

    I'm really thinking either going 7700k or 6800k with 16/32gb of fast ram (3200mhz) or Ryzen.

    6800k has the quad channel ram advantage. Going from dual channel 1600mhz to quad channel 3200mhz and more cores/threads would be quite an upgrade.

    I'm excited to see what Ryzen offers. Pricing looks good, now let's wait for the reviews.

    If the IPC is around Broadwell-E, and it can get 4.0-4.5GHz with at least 3000 DDR4 speeds, it will go in the bucket list for me.

    With the arrival of Skylake-X socket 2011 seems to be another dead end yet again (why Intel, why), and in my stupid head the only possible upgrade is from 4c/8t to 8c/16t and double everything, both the amount of memory and its speed.
