So I was thinking of building a AMD 2700X rig and this review was very good, but going by this and other reviews there doesn't seem to be much of a gain in gaming performance over pretty much what I have now which is the Intel I7 4790. I don't really do anything else that would benefit from having 8 cores, so I'm having second thought on spending $700+ for almost zero return. I'm also thinking possibly of going with the less expensive AMD 2600. Not sure what to do.
