Thinking of making a hardware change. Looking for opinions and thoughts. My current thinking is as soon as the new 8 core Intel mainstream chips release (rumored 9700k etc) I would lose more money re selling what I have currently. Price / value has alot to do with this. My total upgrade cost would be $120-250 as I have a microcenter nearby where I will be buying my gear. So if I can "side grade" to a 2700x and decent Mobo from my 6700k, in the end I may be better off from a price / value stand point. Current System: 6700K Gigabyte Z170 Gaming 7 Mobo 32GB DDR4 2400 Various hard drives 2 x NVME SSD's Corsair 850i PSU Gigabyte 1070 G1 Everything is running stock. Never been overclocked. What I use it for: Well I'd love to say mostly gaming. But that would be a lie. I occasionally play games, but my time has been more limited. I do coding, web development, some work in photoshop, and run around 5 or so VM's, but not always at the same time. This computer is also the main PLEX server for the home network. While the 6700k does everything I think it needs to do, I have been bit by the upgrade bug. It has been a few years since I have built a PC. I wonder, if I do not game much, a loss in single thread performance may not mean too much. And if I am multitasking more, perhaps going with more cores vs less faster cores, would be beneficial. Proposed plan: AMD 2700x Overclocking is not a requirement, but maybe a decent 370/470 mobo? Keep the rest of my system including the ram etc. And rebuild. Sell off the Z170, 6700K and Phanteks cooler Would you do it?
