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

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
