I am in a midst of comparing components and initially I was opting for the Skylake i5 6600K and Z170 chipset. Now, I found out that the i7 5820K Boxed and X99 chipset are 'only' ~200 Euro's more expensive.
So, my question; for purely gaming and streaming which combination would be better? I would assume the latter choice since it has more cores and hyperthreading. However, the Skylake is newer and I assume it is more futureproof, although I am in no way an expert. I was wondering if any expert here could disprove me on this issue.
Thanks in advance!
