I5 8600k OR ryzen 5 2600x

Neyrali

Hi everyone, im going to build a new system for my own and i was wondering what CPU i should use.

 

i mostly play MMO like Black desert in my main monitor but i also do a lot of other stuff in the other 2 monitor while i'm playing. such as Web browsing (multiple tabs at times like videos, news journal etc...), email and other minor games (League of legend...)

the other main components would be GTX 1070, 16 GB RAM 3200MHZ, 650W psu. 2 FHD monitor and 1 2K (1440x2560) monitor.

my concerns are duo to the fact that with my current pc (i5 4570, r9 270 Dual x, 8GB ram) is often overload with all the components at 100% of usage while i use all 3 monitor with 3 different things on it (first monitor black desert, second monitor browser/mail, third monitor league of legend). should i aim to a more multitasking oriented cpu like ryzen and sacrifice some fps in game or should i aim to a 8600k? or am i completely wrong and i should use something even better like I7 or ryzen 7 ? 

i live in italy and i'm going to buy everything on amazon my maximum is 1500€

if you can hack the money up for the 9700k or 8700k, id say that for gaming. but if you want the ability to do major multi threaded stuff done, or maybe stream in the future, then id say ryzen 7. 

 

but if it was between the 2 you said, id say the 2600x.

Thank u for the answer, do u think that choosing a 2600x would highly compromise my performance in the long terms ?

You can play two games at once? :)

 

I'd think aiming for as many cores/threads as possible is best in this scenario, if a 2700 isn't much more than a 2600X where you are consider that. The two games will be the most demanding, but depending on what the browser is doing that could be a CPU hog too (especially Chrome + Youtube). I'm assuming very high framerates are not a requirement here.

no it will not hurt performance. it has slightly lower clock speeds, which you can live with if you game at the 2k resolution.

well for how the main game its done there are a lot of downtime where u are basicaly doing nothing except watching ur character moving from town to town...  also frame rates are not a problem since when i need them i will turn off everything except what i need.

Yes, if you can wait 6 months that is. The CPUs will likely come out in q2/3 2019. It is still possible the AdoredTV leaks are true and the CPUs are coming out in january but that is highly unlikely

yeah i saw those sheets and i wish they were somewhat true. it will be a hell of an upgrade for the entire consumer market.

AMD did state 7nm would bring >25% more performance for the same TDP and that doesn’t really match up with the leaks. Unless by >25% they mean 50% which then it matches up but it’s unlikely.
