Currently in working on a build that should last me a long time with the i7 8700k. The only thing I plan on upgrading is my gpu when volta is released. With that being said Ive heard about pcie 4.0 and ddr5 tech and apparently it's coming out next year or it's already out without my knowledge.

Anyway what I'm getting at is for someone who wants too gaming performance and does 1440p 144hz and is looking to do 4k 100-144hz in the future would pcie 4.0 and ddr5 be something I should jump on when it's out or will it not improve my gaming performance by much.

I really don't want to upgrade my cpu-mobo for the next 5 years with my 8700k build I'm working on.

No, because it is useless to worry something, that is not even here and there is always something better coming just around the corner anyway.
Pc: i7 6700k/980 ti/16gb ram and Ps4.

I understand that which is why I'm upgrading my gpu constantly because I'm a gamer who wants performance. I was just wondering how impactful ddr5 and pcie 4.0 will be on gaming. Will it make a significant difference when playing games to the point where I would need to upgrade for a better experience.

They'll have minimal impact as far as gaming goes, even pcie 2.0 is still more than fine for a single graphics card. I'm looking forward to pcie 4.0 but it'll be for faster storage since high-end nvme drives can already basically max out a 3.0x4 connection.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

Interesting... Well if that's the case then I can stick with my 8700k build for a long time with a peace of mind lol. If something improves gaming performance a large margin in all over it. It's why I shelled out money for the 1080 ti and when volta is released I'll be all over that if it beats the 1080 ti lol . I have a problem lolol

People with 4770k or even lesser are still in good shape and you are worried about your 8700k being outdated immediately? Lol

It'll be a few more years for DDR5, at least. The standard is due to be finalized next year, and hardware has to be updated to support it which will take some time.

I think you might have anxiety. DDR3 is still more than capable. If your that worried just get some high quality DDR4 3200mhz.
