So the question for you guys is with keeping that build in mind, will my performance go down or something if i use i7 7820X for gaming/streaming/rendering some videos sometimes/editing/having like 30 google chrome tabs open in same time? Why im asking this is because i7 7820X has 28 PCI lanes and if i use those 2 graphic cards in SLI, i will only get one at x16 and the other at x8. Compared to the i9 that gets me x16 and x16.....Tell me what u guys think, and thank u !
Is it worth paying 600 bucks more for the i9 or just get the i7 7820X and it will do the job?

It wont hit the performance that hard with 1080 Ti's but we wont know if it will on your next GPU

You should also look at getting an M.2 SSD if youre spending that money. Its drop the 850 Evo's (both) and get a single 1tb or 2tb 960 PRO

Using SLi these days is a little crazy if you ask me. It barely works and even when it does it comes with caveats. I would have gotten one Titan Xp Star Wars. But it's your rig..

IMO 28 lanes is not enough.
