Best ryzen CPU to pair with a GTX 980?

I'm looking for a new Ryzen processor to replace my current 1300x. I have a GTX 980 4Gb currently, but I might be able to upgrade to a GTX 1080 or something in the future. Whats the best processor for my situation and what price should I look for it at? Currently, here in the UK, the pcpartpicker prices are as follows:

 

1600: £135

1600X: £136

2600: £150

1700: £195

1700X: £195

2600X: £197

1800X: £220

2700: £256

2700X: £294

 

Price isn't too much of an issue for me but I'd like to save money if I can. And I'm more than happy with overclocking.

 

Specs:
Ryzen 1300x

H100i

16gb ddr4

msi b350 pc mate

gigabyte gtx 980 4gb

For 15GBP more the R5 2600 is worth it over R5 1600. I would recommend that one, should be fine even with GTX 1080.

Don't forget to update BIOS before upgrade

I was thinking about that one, just didn't know if the extra cores on the 1700 up are worth it

id grab a 2700 or 1700 probably. 

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

1700 is better for tasks like encoding, rendering

2600 is better for gaming

Money isn't an issue but I don't want to spend screeds if I don't have to

Do you really need the upgrade now, I'd wait after ces to see what AMD has in store for Intel after zen 2, but if you can't wait the best option for gaming is 2600 and since you have a gen 1 bio update isn't a problem. If you use the system for rendering I'd go for 1700x
