at this point, I would probably need a i7 considering how much of my time is going into Blender and my suite of graphics programs.
Yeah as much as I want X99, and in particular the Asus X99 Deluxe, the sheer cost is bordering on ridiculousness and it's not worth it for a few minor tweaks in performance from the 3570K I have now. I have no plans to upgrade the CPU and motherboard until at least Skylake, or maybe beyond. I will be upgrading and selling the GPUs I have to the 970 because I want to set my rig up for game streaming. But otherwise I'm fine with the hardware I have now, the way my White Knight rig starts up is near instantaneous. Pretty much all I've been buying lately are peripherals. I will be getting the Corsair K70RGB to complete the setup I ultimately want to have.
Both of you have fully capable machines so there's no reason. I can see wanting the 5820K for the six cores @ $350 but the price of RAM is beyond ludicrous at this point.I don't foresee replacing my i5-3570K either. Nothing I have struggles in the least. The $600-$700 it would probably take for a platform upgrade just doesn't seem like money well-spent.
Hargray has some some serious negatives against it. I would look into satellite TV or Time Warner.What I do want is to be able to record and stream any TV program on or to any of the TVs in my house. What would I need? A tv-tuner and decent LAN setup? Or is there an easier or better way? My options for TV service are a local cable company, Hargray, or one of the satellite providers (DirectTV or Dish Network). I have to get my internet through Hargray regardless, so I got the "bundle" that includes cable TV as well. The DVR kind of sucks, it's really slow and only holds a dozen or so recordings. And you can only watch them on that specific TV. I would get one for each room but it's $15/mo more expensive than a standard box. So I only have one, for the living room, and two standard.
