    You don't have a SSD,,,, that is a cardinal sin. Your bringing down your OS< big time bottleneck. gl

    Pure gaming is better for intel; depends if you have high refresh rat monitor.
    Ryzen is fine for 60hz.

    What monitor do you have?
    What about PSU, SSD, etc?

    If you don't plan to OC, stick with 2666 memory and 8700.

    I'm not too knowledgable about these things, but will you really see much of a difference?

    3770K seems pretty good and you're keeping your SLi setup. It doesn't seem to me that CPUs have come on that far in the last few years.

    Guess you get M2 and other functionality? But game-wise? will you see much improvement?
