What’s up my dudes… remember me? No? That’s ok.
Hey I got a question for you guys. With the 3000 series around the corner, I’m watching prices of the 2700 to see if they come down even more than they already have in the last month and thinking of pulling the trigger on one if I see a deal good enough. I’ve already seen some in the sub $200 dollar range.
But my question is, for someone like me, who isn’t really a power user, but I do use my PC for everything, and I’m not one to tinker around or overclock or even upgrade that often. Gaming, Graphic Design/Art work, Streaming, Maybe some video editing, is about all I plan on doing with it. Is the performance increase from a 2700 to a 2700X even that noticeable? I’m not talking about comparing benchmarks, just “feel” which I know is completely subjective, but I think some of you know what I mean.
And as a followup question… My current plan is to buy an X570 to drop this 2700(x) in and eventually one day upgrade to a 3000 series or newer if the socket still supports it, but is that a dumb idea?
Only reason I’m thinking of doing this is, I don’t want to have to upgrade my motherboard 3-4 years from now in order to take advantage of (theoretically possible) future PCI 4.0 tech. Yea, I know it’s impossible to future proof anything, but that’s why I’m asking? Is this a dumb idea?
