Whatever CPU series launches after the PS5 launches as part of a completely new build.
Explain why MSI needs our laptops on top of the wholesale cost they're already get from us in their GT72(s)/GT80(s) trade in program? MSI isn't to be trusted!

Not for awhile, and remember you can't just upgrade the CPU, you will need a new mobo too. Since upgrading to a 7700K is pointless with the amount of extra power you get. The next CPU you will want is something like the 8700k for the 6 cores. I have the same CPU TC. And that's the plan. CPUs tend to be the longest lasting components of a build, with GPU's being the shortest lasting.
