New PC / Upgrade | Your Thoughts

Hi all, going to be upgrading my machine and was just wanting some options. Gonna wait for the 9700K to drop in price but other than that I like it.

 

I think that 9700K will help with the streaming I do want to do in the future.

Get the 8700k, its cheaper and has hyperthreading.

 

Otherwise the upgrade looks fine. What do you have for storage in your pc right now?

I like the 2 extra cores though, doesn't matter?

250GB SDD & a 2TB Hitachi storage drive.

What's the pc for? 

 

With that storage I wouldnt bother getting an NVME drive unless you're moving big files around- but if you are, go for it

Gaming / Streaming. I just want a bigger drive to store frequent games but you're probably night, NVME probably isn't worth it for my case.

If you're streaming I'd say to look at AMD's 2700/x - it's much more economical than the 9700k, and the sacrifice is minimal.

If you want the best for streaming, look at the 9900k but its about 2.5x the price of the 2700 for about a 15% increase in performance. 

 

For your storage solution though, look at a sata ssd, they're a little cheaper and you won't notice a performance difference at all
