New tech and the right time to buy new PC

I was just curious about this and if new PC's have the capability and tech to use the latest PCIe capabilities and other interesting technologies.

Thanks folks

Hi,
I don't know about the new z170 and skylake stuff they seems just a little too freaking cheap to be any good
Hopefully we'll see some benchmarks to see what they can do

But yes 500.us for a board a cpu is very interesting and not even AMD

TZ, that's not really cheap. You can't compare the mainstream components to the enthusiast components. The mainstream i7's have always run $320-350 and you could pick up a decent board for $200 or less. So, $500 for a mainstream rig is about what they have always been.

It's another term for what you have in your computer. They are very different systems designed for different purposes.

I was meaning the average Intel i5 equipped computer not enthusiast type top of the line computers . Are they still coming with the current SATA III interface that doesn't allow faster SSD speeds?

No google on your PC ?

Why aren`t you researching this ?

Things have been great since the Z77 series boards and the 600 series cards, and it`s just gotten better.

A Z97 an i5 or i7 and a 980 and you`re set for a long time.

You want great, go X99 and an E series cpu.

The only thing that urks me is sata express, no need for something that`s not here yet.
