Should be a good news for people like me waiting for i7-6700k to get cheaper...!

If I want a future proof computer for at least 3-5 years (though could be longer), do you guys suggest I get an i7 that is before the upcoming new ones?

I've had my e8400 3.0 ghz since 2008 lol. I mainly surf, work with documents, and sometimes play skyrim and once a while play around with recording music or playing instruments.

previous generation is far more than enough. if u can afford get the i7 if not i5 is still pretty decent for the next 4 years I would say

Truthfully you can probably get the i5 and be good for the next 3-5 years. With your requirements, unless those activities exponentially grow in required computing power an i5 will probably be enough and an i7 is overkill. If you are worried about gaming, the limiting factor the last 5 years has been the GPU and not the CPU so if needed upgrade that instead of the CPU when the time comes.

Unless you need the cores, I say get the i7-6700k or i5-6500k over these since they are better bang for buck.

On a side note, guess it's time to upgrade

If you run numerical calculation or multi-threaded applications then you need multiple cores..

I doubt these will have any effect on the 6700k. Different socket, different consumer segment.

As far as whether i7 is worth it for the tasks you list. No, not really. i5 for those tasks and a 5 year upgrade span would be fine.

But if you think about it, most people on SD aren't going to be doing those things. At the rate HEDT prices are increasing, it really will be an enthusiast market.

I partially agree with you ..but I have seen in the previous thread of B&H 6700k deal that several people are using it for 4k video editing and I myself run numerical code and looking for a multi-core processor but its out of reach for me..! I hope prices come down ..

But in comparison with most people on SD, they are still dwarfed. HEDT prices never really drop even when they go EOL. If you aren't doing any overclocking, then a ES Xeon on ebay might not be a bad choice.

On a side note, anyone want to buy my 5960x so i can upgrade to a 6950x lol

As most of the others have said... My i5 2500k is still going strong. The only reason I'll upgrade at this point really is twitch streaming, otherwise it'd last me two or more years. I'm just over the 5 year mark currently.

A desktop i5 is more than enough for these things. What multi threaded apps are you goin to be using that really makes a difference? Not too many I'd gather.

I do not know if you have upgraded yet to an SSD. This will be like night and day in load times for Skyrim and all applications on your computer. They are going for about $200 for a 960G about 1T. Mirror your current HD to the SSD. Check to see if 2008 PC will work with SSD.
