TL:DWTR.. (What would you change or do different, hows it look?) Gaming/video editing/streaming
So, this past year I have helped a few friends with there builds and while I thought I would have my upgrades done by now I unfortunately have had some set backs. After speaking to my wife, she is letting me buy two parts every other week. I already have my card (1070ti) the rest is what I was gonna build over this summer. Originally I was going to go w/ an 8700 non-k due to value and what I was wanting it for but that was a few months ago and now that the 2700x is here i started thinking.... I saw in gaming benchmarks "@ 1440p and higher" the 8700k and 2700x are pretty close in performance but its that multi-threaded performance from the 2700x and @ its price which also comes with a pretty good cooler that has me thinking to now go Ryzen. (Overall Value)
Because of the way I am doing this, there really is no budget limit for parts but the more expensive the parts then the longer this will take.
What would you change or do different, or is my build thinking just plain wack?
