My friend doesn’t have a lot of money but has been wanting to play some games with me for a while so I decided I am going to buy CPU, Mobo, Memory, and SSD for him. Of course, he is fine with whatever decision I make and I was thinking I could upgrade my PC and then give him my parts, but I’m curious if this is worth doing.
I have an Asrock X370 Taichi and a Ryzen 1700.
I’m thinking I could put a 3700x, 3800x, or 3900x in my X370 but I am curious if I would be missing out on some advantageous features?
My other option is to just get one of the CPU’s above and pair it with an x570 mobo, but after some light research I see some people say rather than upgrading to 3000 series you would be better off waiting for 4000 series?
