Hello everyone. I've been posting around a bit about these CPUs and I'm still trying to decide what to do.
At present, I have a i7 4930k overclocked at 4.0Ghz with 24GB DDR3 1600 RAM. I've been thinking about upgrading my computer for a while, and having recently gotten myself a stronger GPU, I figure it's only fitting I replace the CPU next.
I'm planning on taking a trip to microcenter to potentially grab one of the following AMD CPUs, provided they will actually prove to be a significant upgrade from the 4930k that I have now. I intend to primary be gaming and streaming, along with some light video editing. The CPU will be paired with the Asus ROG STRIX B450-F Gaming Motherboard, and the Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8) DDR4-3000 RAM
Ryzen 7 1700X - $150.00
Ryzen 7 2700 - $220.00
Ryzen 7 2700X - $280.00
I'm aiming for a viable upgrade that's worth the cost. If anyone has any recommendations, or can decidedly tell me that it's simply not worth the time and money, please let me know. Alternatively if anyone can clarify the key differences between each of the AMD CPUs, that would also be extremely helpful.
