I7-8770k should I wait 3 month?

So I live in Sweden Stockholm and i ordered I7-8700k + ram + motherboard from https://www.elgiganten.se. Today they delivered motherboard Asus Prime Z370-A but ram will be next week and the cpu next year in the end of January. Or should I just swap motherboard and get I7-7700k ?

I wouldnt wait that long, id say go with a slightly older 6 or 8 core, but if you are 100% only gaming the 7700k would be okay, if you delid and oc to 5ghz, there is still a huge gap but in most stuff it shouldnt matter imo.

Specs v-v

Just get the i7 7700k and swap the mobo.

If you are just gaming, it is not a big difference, about 3-5FPS in most games.

And if you aren't experienced builder like me, do not go with super expensive stuff...

You could go with a ryzen 5 1600 or 1700 for around same price as well. There are good deals on those atm.

for what is coming the next years i would definitely not go with a 7700k. Yeah it is a good CPU TODAY but with what is coming with directx12 and all the future stuff i would not recommend a 4(8) Core CPU. DirectX12 will perform bedder on more Cores due to some mechanics like the preparation of  data, for render frames that the GPU will be using not only for the next frame but for more, so the GPU can be under constant full load, because the data is ready to be deliverd instead of being processed and than deliverd.  Another thing is that you have a bigger LvL 3 cash, so your CPU can work with a bigger internal RAM.

I'am planning on upgrading in the near future so i have informed me well with what is coming and i see a 4 core in 3-4 Years to slow for gaming on higher graphic settings.

I have a 3570k right now a it is at it's limit with most games and the 7700k is even if it has Hyperthreading a physical 4 Core CPU so under full load it has not much more power.

uh....what? What does being an experienced builder have to do with the quality/price of the parts used? I know people that have dumped $1500+ in their first build.

Can you wait or can you not wait.

That is the question.

 

If you can wait, then wait. If you can't wait, then don't wait.

Apparently you arent allowed to build nice builds until you have some builds under your belt, idk.
