2700X More cores, Higher stock clock. One con is higher TDP so better grab some aftermarket cooling!

Is it worth the extra 120 euros?

right now, i'd rather save the money and get the 2600 or 1600 and save the rest for the 3k Series wich shouldn't be too far away and upgrade as soon as possible.

What GPU are you getting? if gaming is pretty much all you'll do you can go with the 2600X by all means, it's the same processor and the extra 2 cores doesn't really add much at least as it is right now.

 

If you are getting a super high end GPU though like a RTX 2080 you might want to go i7 instead.

If only gaming, 2600x is more than enough.

Put that money somewhere else (gpu, ssd, more ram, faster ram, better cooling, etc).

Would the 3rd Gen Ryzen work with X470? I have a GTX 1080. I got a Asus Crosshair VII for Christmas so intel is a no go.
