I just spent an hour looking at benchmarks and I'm even more confused, hopefully you guys can help.

 

Feel free and try and convince me to consider an Intel PC but I was hoping to upgrade my CPU in the future.

 

And I think I would have to spend like $30 more on the motherboard if I got 2700 X, plus I haven't seen very many benchmarks that take advantage of the extra 2 cores to match it but it's always close.

Also what does The X Mean, I think it means 95 Watts vs 65 Watts, but I assume they're pretty similar after you overclock it right?

3600. 2700 or 2700x is great for budget productivity. In gaming, 3600 beats 2700x, but in productivity software that favorite in multi core, 2700x beats 3600.

you are picking from 100~200 range, meaning your gpu wont be anything crazy, gaming performance will be very similar on all of your choices.

2600/2700 will be good enough for most use case for a long time

You think the 3600 will go down at least a little bit, I'm probably not going to get anything at least until November / December, if I get anything first if we the board or the ram.

 

Or should I just deal hunt

Or bite the bullet and spend 50-60, and by everything at the same time?

If you're right then we might even see it at $150 this year, what's that a price alert hopefully Black Friday or something
