This is going to be entirely subjective to use case.

That said, no, I don't think you're likely to see a substantial enough improvement in anything to justify the investment this soon, for general computing needs.

I can’t say what you got is bad, but it’s definitely not the best you could do. If possible, I would cancel the orders. Depending on what motherboard you currently have, I would recommend either getting an amd 3000 or 5000 cpu. It may not necessarily perform as well, but the price to performance will be much better especially considering the price of a new mother and going with a locked chip.

But what about your performance is unsatisfactory and in what workloads? The 2700x is a very capable cpu still and it is possible that a gpu upgrade would be more beneficial to you.

I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Why do you think it's the CPU causing those spikes?

Hand, n. A singular instrument worn at the end of the human arm and commonly thrust into somebody’s pocket.

It's a good gaming CPU, why didn't you get the K? If you got the locked version hopefully you didn't waste money in an expensive motherboard.
