How future proof is my build?

We honestly can't really say either cause no one here (that I know of) is a time traveler

 

A good 4 years at least though, is a *safe* thing to say I think

Hahah obviously. Is there anything you'd say I should reconsider?

I'd get an 8700k instead of the 9700k because you lose hyperthreading with the 9700k. All else looks fine

 

Another note I'd add is go to pcpartpicker.com and put in the same parts you have here. It'll find cheaper places for you to buy

Thank you for the tip. 

 

I already bought the 9700k. I'm not familiar with hyper threading, will ti cause a big difference?

It helps with multitasking. 

 

So say you're playing games, but to the side you have a video or some spreadsheets going, it helps keep everything handled all at once. Theres a good Techquickie video on it

Oh makes sense. Should I just keep my 9700k or return it for the 8700k?

Amazons return function is super great, if you can find an 8700k for less go for it imo.

But its not crucial

If you like the 9700K it's fine but if the 8700K is cheaper I'd go for that instead

Well, the 9700k does have 2 extra cores, which evens it out a lil
