a used 8700k and money towards a better graphics card will net you a better gaming experience

Keep the 4770k if you don't need the 12 cores. Upgrade GPU if you play games. If you need the cores, there is none better than this.

I went from a 3770k to a 2700x. Huge bump in performance. The old intel chips have hung in there but the new Ryzen chips are a worthy upgrade.
Thanks for the feedback fellas. I mostly use my PC for heavy duty excel stuff and gaming so I think processor for my purposes is fine. CPU upgrade alone will cost me around 800 and for ~30% improvement, which is what most benchmarks seem to suggest, i dont think its worth it.

I can benefit from a better video card though. I am running 290x and really haven't had that many issues but on ultra settings, it does struggle in certain games.

You are welcome. You definitely need a new GPU. I would recommend the 5700xt, 5700 or the 5600xt depending on your budget. They are good price to performance cards.

Is it worth spending all that extra cash to get a 2080TI instead?/

Benchmarks here suggest that 5700XT performs pretty close to 2080 for quite a bit less

The 2080ti is the worst value card ever. It is only for those that need the fastest FPS and cash is no issue. The 2080 Super is a better value and pretty close to the TI in performance. Unless you are a pro gamer or playing at 4k, you dont need a 2080ti. Also, your current CPU will bottleneck these higher end cards.

Sounds good. I will look into the 2 suggestions you mentioned. Don't mind me reaching out to you if I need further input

This will be a great pair with the Newegg X570 and Gskill combo deal. I wonder why we can't just buy it all from Newegg website at once and have to order separately.

Not compete but beat the 3900x in IPC doing real world benchmarks 10900k will do this next month. Multi threading AMD will win but really who would rather save 1 min of time on encoding to get poor software and hardware capabilities whether it comes to gaming or applications.

I am still interested in Ryzen but no one can provide concrete proof if they fixed the ryzen firmware bugs that reduce performance in games and applications.

Ryzen is great for professionals but highly doubt anyone that is buying this maybe 3 % of consumers will use the full potential of Ryzen. If you want gaming go intel. I w would like to upgrade to ryzen but still waiting for evidence if the firmware bug is fixed.
https://www.tomshardware.com/news...40398.html
I replaced an aging i5 4670 with a ryzen 5 2600 and haven't had any incompatibility with games myself. The 8600k was rated slightly higher for gaming but it was also 50% higher cost (including the motherboards at the time being higher)

It made more sense in a budget standpoint to go amd.

If someone likes Intel, shouldn't you be happy AMD has put the pressure on with how far they've come since their last big run with the athlon xp? Intel hasn't been priced fairly for too long and the pressure has helped make Intel prices more reasonable.

And if AMD is your cup of tea then maybe pray Intel can produce and come out with something better? Intel can keep pushing faster chips, but probably not worth it if it's rumored around 3x the power. If Intel can produce though then AMD will have to respond.

Either way, the competition is good for us consumers...
We're not getting paid by red or blue so I just don't get all the drama here.
As someone in dire need of a new build after 10 years using the i7-970 I really want to see examples of what this chip can/can't do. Rumors of better chips around the corner? Awesome. How much of it is rumor vs actual facts?
What are people's current builds? Sure I can check Google, but I like utilizing the active thread that I'm already a member of.

/Hopes

Yup, and just wait till Zen 3 chips launch later with another 17% or so IPC over Zen 2. Intel is going to be in a really tough position.

Just let me know when AMD hits above 25% of the desktop market (which may not be too long.....AMD's sitting at 18.3% of the desktop market in 4Q2019) or hits above 20% of the overall x86 cpu market (as of 4Q2019 AMD was at 15.5%). Oh yeah, AMD's up to 4.5% of the server market...a nice increase but still a bit player at best.

Don't think Intel's too worried at present.....sure, awakened by AMD's new cpus, but I suspect the same scenario will play out like it did when AMD was first to market with x64 cpus and then first to market with multi-core cpus. How'd that end up?

I am glad AMD's doing well as it'll force Intel to drop prices eventually, but given past history, AMD will probably blossom for a couple of years and then fade to almost obscurity, as happened before. You don't poke the bear and expect no reaction.....as AMD found out as C2D and beyond cleaned their clock.

Intel were awaken after AMD released Ryzen in 2017. If not, you would be buying quad core i7 9900k right now. It has been three years and they are still on 14nm and same architecture. An arch takes a long time to develop (Zen took 5 years) so until Intel releases something new in store, that remains to be seen. AMD is in a totally different and more advantageous position now compared to the past. They have many partners along with ps5 and xbox products coming. So we will see.

Not a real deal and retail is 499.99 not 529.99 so not really huge discount. Microcenter has the same deal currently. AMD is also releasing new gen this year as well so this will drop more in the mid year.

Hi Folks. FYI You can buy pretty great x570 motherboards for really cheap with the current Amazon Warehouse 20% promotion. Personally I have just purchased a x570 MSI MEG ACE for my 3900x from Microcenter and I'm beyond excited. I wouldn't have splurge on such a high-end board if the price didn't drop so much.

Click here for IMO good deals on x570 boards:
https://www.amazon.com/s?k=x570&i..._sb_noss_1

If you are looking for SLI compatibility, I will recommend
1. x570 asus prime pro
2. x570 asus strix F
3. x570 gigabyte auros pro (or higher level one)
those recs. are in no particular order.

So is this a fake deal? MC is pretty exclusive around the nation; it is 500 miles away from me.

I don't think investing in a new motherboard that is a dead platform is a wise choice at this point. AMDs boards should work with at least one more future generation of CPUs, and you're going to have WAY more options on the used CPU market down the road.
