This is amazing value. I could go for this over the 1600X and have beastly performance. It would completely wasted on me, but still.

Not forever it wouldn't be. At some point you would say "Man am I glad I went with the extra cores". Even if that took a decade lol.

Well, I do plan on going 8 cores when Zen 2 comes out next year (or whenever), but mostly because of the higher clock speeds and higher per core performance. That's the only thing holding Ryzen back from being the perfect CPU. I was gonna go with a 1600X (not the 1600 because the 1600X is better binned) until Zen 2/Zen+ and then upgrading to an 8 core variant and being happy for many years. I could still do that with a 1700X, but I'd be less inclined to since I paid more in the beginning and would only be upgrading clock speed by going Zen 2.

Always been Intel but AMD has brought a lot to the table with this CPU.

I have a new PC build coming up and this is soooooo tempting
