  • Time to upgrade???

    Ok currently got the i7 3770k running at 4.8Ghz with a GTX1070.

    was thinking of getting a i7 7700k last month but decided to wait till till coffee lake.

    And heres the problem. What do i get????

    I will need a new case as well as wanna get a slightly smaller one than the HAF-X

    I only really use computer for watching movies playing games and streaming.

    Is the i7 8700k worth getting or complete overkill???

        Grab 1700x then if your streaming whilst gaming, it's king of doing both.

          I still can't justify the upgrade from the 3770k. There's so little in it for so much expenditure. I'm holding out for next gen then taking the plunge. I edit photos (24MP RAW) and edit 1080P video almost every week as part of my photography/videography job so productivity and render power is more important than gaming performance to me at the moment and I still can't justify spending on an upgrade just yet.

            To be honest, as much as I'd love new toys, I'm still struggling to even justify upgrading from a 2500k. Still running at stock and plays everything fine at 1080p and plenty of overclocking headroom left if I need it..

              Theres been more changes to power efficiency than performance in my opinion, whilst it'll be nice to have a more efficient system, I can't justify the cost for the insignificant performance gains.

                  Best time to buy a Ryzen they reduced by 30% at moment until 2nd December. 1800x down from 499 to 329 ish at some places. 1700x around 240 at big river, that's 8 cores 16 threads.
