    Howdy.

    At the moment I'm running a 4690k on a Z97 board. Would I notice any difference jumping to skylake ? Computer is only used for gaming and internet.

    Will not notice anything, Only reason to buy skylake is if you are building a new system

    What games do you play

    Maybe a GPU upgrade depending on what you have now

    Play any and all types of games. Running a 980ti. Everything runs fine I was just curious if it was worth it or not.

    Given you already have a high end gpu I don't think you will notice any difference at all.

    This is how I do it

    New game runs crappy.

    Am I happy dialling back settings, if yes do that and play game

    Is computer dead - buy new shit

    Do all games run slower and uglier than I want - replace GPU.

    I have a new GPU, shit is still slow - update everything else.

    Is everything ok - play games.



    End of the day most i7 and i5 systems are more than capable of running everything with a decent GPU.

    Well that all depends on what settings you run the games at. Some are happy with low to mid settings which with a competent gpu will run most games absolutely fine, everything else being equal. Some want to blaze away in full detail which may require churning over hardware more quickly.
