Which way to go for upgrade..
Currently running an i7-7700k, with 16GB of DDR4-2133
Looking to add more cores/ram.
Light 1440p gaming (WOWS, WOWP)
Hyper-V (bunch of VM's for lab work for IT courses)
Video editing with Movavi Pro
Stuff I will keep:
950 Pro M2 256gb
870 EVO 1TB
WD Green 3TB
I can go with an i7-8700k or Ryzen 2700x (don't really want to spend much more), with similar motherboards, the AMD is about $50CAD more expensive
I can also leave this system as-is, get a cheaper Ryzen, and throw that into another box with the 4x600GB Raptor drives I have and load Hyper-V server on that..
Any leftover parts will go to my son's PC, circle of life and all that.
I haven't had an AMD system since my trusty Athlon X2!
