CPU upgrade choice in CPUs, Motherboards, and Memory Posted October 4, 2020 1 minute ago, Fasauceome said: If you want gaming performance only, 10600K is your pick. But new ryzen CPUs are being announced in 4 days, so perhaps you could hold out for that to see pricing? Maybe AMD's competitor for the 10600K is quite compelling. Saw the assumed benchmarks of the ZEN 3 , looks very appealing , but i dont want to wait for new X*70 motherboards and deal with low stock of new ZEN 3 cpus (cough.. rtx3080). I5 10600k is now better than R7 3700x (for gaming) but what about years to come ? would that stay ? Isn't R7 3700x a better "future proof" ?
