Given how cheap these are getting, is it worth going from my 2600 to a 2700 or 2700x? I built my PC in October of last year. It’s pretty strictly a web browsing HTPC gaming rig, and it’s paired with a 1070 FTW and 16gb of ram.
I’m probably not going to be doing any streaming, editing, or rendering, so it’d pretty much be an e-peen upgrade. Just wondering if it’d be worth it for a rig I don’t wanna f with for several years aside from maybe the GPU since my ultimate goal is high refresh 1440p or 1600p ultrawide gaming on max settings.
I only plan on upgrading the ram when the standards for capacity shift again, but I already know I’ll need a different GPU for my graphics goal. Currently waiting on Navi and I really hope it delivers, but that’s off topic, so I digress.
