It kind of depends on what you're intending to do with it. I personally think the 2600x (option 1) is the best choice but pick some nicer ram, like quality not clock speed

as someone that went from 4770k at 4.4 to 8700k at 4.7/4.9

I'd say its almost worth waiting another gen

think I went premature on my upgrade

 

edit and I could have pushed higher on my 4770k it is delidded

think I just had upgraditis

but has suited me well for multitasking

None of the above.

 

The 4770k is still perfectly capable.

 

Maybe consider upgrading your GPU instead, or going full SSD storage if your not already. Or upgrade ur monitor.
