    To upgrade or wait.

    Current specs in profile. Was thinking of upgrading my mobo and cpu but not sure if the small benefit would be worth the upgrade I was thinking either going to x99 asus pro mobo and I7 5930k cpu or z710 asus pro mobo with i7 6700k. But all the testing and reviews I have seen show only a 5-10% increase going either direction from my current set up especially when i have this cpu clocked to 4.8 from 3.5.

    I would stick with the Motherboard and CPU, It's a nice combination and I doubt you'll see any real improvement with an upgrade.
