Well since my kid has officialy taken over my gaming rig I think its time for Dad to build another machine lol. The only problem is I do not have such a High budget like some of you guys here but I would like nothing less then 8-Threads so anything from a used 2600k, Used 3930k,3960x, would be more then enough for me.I cant help but wonder if Ryzen 1700 would be my best bet honestly at that price its a no-brainer,thoughts? ....I will be pairing this up with a high-end motherboard and more then likely a Gtx 1080 or 1080ti possibly sli not sure yet? ....I do not game as much anymore 40 year old old-fart haha so yeah whats up guru"s what schould I do here? 1) Ryzen 7 1700- $269.99 Thats a steal at that price wow! 2) Ryzen 5 1600-$189.99 Awsome price as well My question is what is better for gaming 3960x Overclocked or 3930k oc or is Ryzen better at gaming? I have 0% experience with the new Ryzen cpu,s so would love to hear someone that has one. Only thing I do NOT like about them is the oc celing is 4ghz thats it, to were I can get a used intel and more then likely pass 4.5 ghz on liquid cooling- Whats a man to do? Thanks guys.
