Go with X470 and 2700x in a couple of months or wait ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

In a bit of a pickle getting ready to do a new build. first time in 6 years. I will be able to afford a decent x470 motherboard (MSI gaming pro carbon) and 2700 x in month or so 

But would it be best to see what x570 brings and Ryzen 3000 series. 

Or maybe even wait another couple months onto to see how much the prices of the current stuff goes down?

I say get a well equipped X470 when one goes on sale, then when the new CPUs are about to launch, get a boot kit from AMD. If you time it right, you'll get it right when the new BIOS hits, and then you can grab a 3rd gen cpu.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.
