"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

If you only do gaming, go with the i5 6600K. If you do other stuff such as video editing/rendering etc go with X99

If you want to future proof it, go with the 5820K.

That PSU looks like a abomination, so upgrade it if you can. Also stick with the 970, the 980ti isn't worth getting now of as Nvidia are almost ready to get pascal out.

The difference in IPC isn't that big. However the 5820K has 6 cores and 12 threads, where as the 6700K only has 4 cores and 8 threads.

I\ve had it for like 5 6 years, and im afraid its gonna explode. My birthday is in a few months so i might get a new one.

I saw a PSU reliability list on a forum somewhere, but i cant find it.

Here it is:

It's not there though, tried to look for reviews online, but all I got was a "my psu exploded" thread, which is clearly not a great indication. You must be goddam lucky to have this thing last for 5-6 years, reaaallly lucky.
