I went back and forth for many months on intel vs AMD and 7th gen vs 8th and I have decided I really feel like this particular processor is a good one to feel is good enough years and years down the line, as it's quite a jump ion performance over 7th gen.

But I was waiting for BF deals on 7th gen, originally, and they are so much cheaper... So now I have to wait who knows how long, as I doubt I'd pay over $300 for this and they only released high end mobos for 8th gen intels, too, so I have to wait until next year to get a mobo if I go with this cpu. Frown I want combined cost to be $400 or less for cpu/mobo. And the standard 8700 cpu looks to be too big of a hit on multicore performance versus even AMD, whereas 8700k outperforms those ryzens in basically every way.

Just noticed in another thread, someone said you can get a z370 mobo for $99, so that is fine.... if this processor would go for under $350, I'd maybe get it then. But If I wait until a lower end mobo, maybe I'd get both for a combined $350 or so.

Judging by userbenchmark.com, I am even tempted to get the standard 8700, actually. It beats the ryzen 1700x quite handily, almost even in the "workstation". All the 8700k really does is add less than 10% performance and handily beats the 1800x.
