    Yea I mean, if it's a money issue it would just be better if he saved up for a platform upgrade later or something right? And just go for the GPU today? :) 300$ used? That's quite a lot of moniez :eek:

    If staying on an Intel platform, I wouldn't consider anything less than an 8700k. Going from 6x00 to 7x00 seems more like a sidegrade (even if it's i5 to i7, 4c/4t to 4c/8t it's... it could be better).

    Edit: So, my opinion, save your money up for when you can buy a better CPU and (if necessary) motherboard, I wouldn't do an interim upgrade to another quadcore.

    Again, thank you to all who have chimed in, I know these types of questions have many potential answers, lots of variables.
    Lots of info to digest here.
    Ill let you know what I end up doing and how it turns out, thanks!

    Yea man, you should totally get one :p What did you have in mind?

    Damnit! I clearly have eyesight problems in this post :mad:
    Now the 7700K makes even more sense.

    Apologies for my incompetence :oops:

    Picked up a sapphire 5700xt pulse yesterday.
    Thing is a beast so far.
    Pretty darn quiet too.
    4k ultra pubg is ridiculous.
    Played a few games with no crashes..yet.
    On latest optional amd driver.
