Are you willing to pay near double the costs in favor of 10fps in certain games? If yes, go with Intel. Otherwise save your cash with Ryzen and put it towards a better GPU/SSD/etc.


Lol what. A 1700x is $350 vs an 8700k is $380 to $400. 10 fps? Games like grand theft auto 5 get 40+ fps difference between the 2 mentioned cpus. That's with a 1080 ti. The difference would be even bigger with a less powerful gpu. He said he wants the best thing for gaming... right now its intel and it's not even close.

Looks like most games gain about 20+ fps with an 8700k at 1080p with a gtx 1080.

Now I'm curious how Ryzen 2nd gen performances will be.

Who games at 1080p when they have a 1080 Ti in their system? If you have a 1080 Ti it means you're targeting either 4k60 or 1440p144.

People eliminating a GPU bottleneck.

Or were you just trying to be edgy?

100+ FPS is a thing.

I'm leaning toward the i9 to "future proof" in a sense. I want this system to last at least 5 years before I do a major upgrade.

Right now an i7 or Ryzen is "future proofing" as manufacturers finally decided to add more cores.

Both are good choices. If you want absolute highest fps, you need a good cooler and an i7 overclocked. If you don't plan on overclocking much or don't care for anything more than 60fps, then it doesn't matter what you choose right now.

Ryzen is a cheaper platform, intel is a faster/more expensive platform. Imo, I would go with ryzen.

CPUs tend to be the components that last the longest, thank goodness too, since a CPU upgrade usually means a new build just about.

yes this is true, gives me a headache just thinking about how to upgrade the CPU in my machine xD. probably gonna replace the whole thing except for the video card, hard drive, sound card, and wifi card. you can't even keep the case in my case since it's so old it will need a new bracket for SSDs and it's not even compatible with USB 3.0 for the front panel.

the good thing is I think I can keep it for this console generation still since they're using a tablet CPU in the consoles.

edit: on second thought, probably better to start over with a new hard drive as well. 1TB is too small these days =/
