The upgrades will be around Christmas/march. I want to increase my rendering times in windows live movie maker. If possible I would like to increase fps in games. I am on a 1080p monitor. My budget is 1200. My specs right now are an i5 6500, gigbyte h110a-m, and an 960. Heres what I was thinking- http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Ww4r99 or http://pcpartpicker.com/p/PJg2qs

And also look for a RMx/RMi series, or go with a evga G2/P2 model

ok one ?. Would that give me as much as a performance increase as changing to an 5930k? Cause I can always upgrade the gpu in two years.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/KxyX99 is this a better balance of render time decreasing and fps increasing?
