Will I regret getting a 8700k now ?

Intel CPUs - www.overclock.net
With RIZEN 2 on the way, is the 8700k still a good choice? I had one before sold it and now i'm building again.

I will be playing at 1080p. I already have a 240hz G-sync monitor. What CPU do you think I should get paired with a Gtx1080 ?

Amd version : 330 for the CPU+300 for The x470 motherboard that's 630 euros with cooler included.

Intel version: also 330 +330 for the motherboard and another 70 for the aftermarket cpu cooler, 730 in total.

Will the Intel CPU provide better minimum frame rates required for this monitor ? And is it worth that 100 euros premium price ?

Early leaks suggest a score of about 174 single thread score for AMD and intel scores about 200 at stock.

Note: my last AMD build was back in 2003 with sime Athlon chip, I'm no longer familiar with the AMD side.

What is your take on this? Please help me make a decision.
