What do you guy's think about this?

I was looking at the different family's of CPU's and found the Skylake-H, I remember that Asus was making a 'gaming' mobo for it and I was wondering what you's think about skylake xeon's like what people done with haswell.

This is what I would do but I thought, "what is the point if its only £20 more for a 6700?"... Post your opinions.

I was just curious to see what people think, when I seen it I thought for the price difference its better to get a 6500 or even a haswell xeon. I will probably end up with a 6500 myself.
