To not make new thread, i’ll leech here.
I’m about to upgrade my system that has fx8350 and RX580.
As Gpu’s are so insane atm. i will upgrade 580 later, but i will need new rest of the system.
What i have been adding to a cart in online shops and discarding, are mostly, 5600x/5800x, 32gigs of 3600 cl16 ram and some x570 mobo and 1-2Tt nvme ssd.
I have had hard time to make the decission to commit, so i’m asking for opinions about if there is other 8 core cpu’s i should build around than 5800x. I’m pretty sure i wana go with 8 cores for the next five to ten years. ( 5600x 6core is just back up in my plans for availability.) I don’t upgrade hardware often.
Also lately 12 thousand series intel parts seem interesting and the prices are expected to stay quite affordable for those. tho i’m not hot for pushing back my upgrade for these to be released.
Am i looking over for a “better/sane” more affordable solutions?
I’m looking for your input and ideas.
oh and ps.
