1800x vs 2600x

Hey guys, I'm on the fence between a 1800x and a 2600x. Right now i can get a 1800x for 200$ or get a 2600x for 190$. It will be paired with a 1080, 16gb-3000 ram an evga 280mm aio and a x470 motherboard (I plan on overclocking). It will be used for gaming, photo editing and video editing. I am already set on all other components so i don't need help with that, i just need help choosing the cpu. (Im leaning towards the 1800x)

2600x is a bit better for gaming

1800x is quite a bit better for video editing

 

IMO, 1800X is a better choice overall for you.

Thats what im thinking, because honestly the gaming performance seems marginal

 

Thank you!

for $10 more i'd rather take the 1800x even if it's only for gaming, get that.

I plan on overclocking the 1800x too so why get a 1700 and overclock that? It won't get me more performance than a 1800x overclocked or even be that much better price wise

The 1800x is basically a slightly better binned 1700, meaning like 5-10% more of 1800x are likely to hit 4Ghz, which even then is still unlikely. (At a reasonable voltage)

getting a 1800X to OC wouldn't really make sense, as the 1700 has the around the same max OC potential (~4ghz).

1800x is still better, but not by much.

Ok i see what you are saying now but the 1700 isnt avalible at my local microcenter and even then its only 20$ less so i think ima just get the 1800x

 

Thank you!

Ok i would probably go for the 1700 in that case if it was avalible, but at my microcenter they only have the 1800x in stock and the proce difference is only 20 dollars. Thank you for the help, i have definitely learned some stuff
