Ryzen 1600 vs i7 7700k vs 8'th gen i5.

Like in title. I want to spend as low amount of money as possible. I need to buy a bundle with ryzen , motherboard and cpu , i7 7700k can be in my motherboard without any issues but I can't overclock it with it. Is it worth getting any of these cpu's? I know that intel is better for gaming for 10-15% , but is 150 euros more worth a buy? If I buy i7 7700k with a z270 then I need to pay 150 euros extra. I can also buy a new gen of intels or like said earlier I can buy just the processor , but I have got h110 motherboard and I will not be able to overclock it. In conclusion if I want to buy a i7 without the motherboard I need to pay 50 euros extra , than buying ryzen with motherboard. My PSU is Be Quiet 400w silver rated. It will handle. Everything is just right if it comes to power consumption as I built a lot of pc's in the past , but if it comes to my own rig I can never decide on my own. :D

I tested both of the cpu's but I am still not sure what to do. I am streaming for fun , but I don't care about it so you don't need to tell me that ryzen is better in streaming as I know that. I just want your opinions.

Tell me your thoughts about it and say one of 3 anwsers in the end.:

1.GO FOR RYZEN

2.GO FOR INTEL 7'TH GEN

3.WAIT FOR INTEL'S 8'TH GEN

  2. If you don't game stream, edit video or use other well threaded tasks...just grab the i7 7700K...Might cost more but It will be a hair better in games, for now. And it is an easy upgrade. If you do any of the things I mentioned then get Ryzen as it will be cheaper then the i7 or even coffee lake CPUs. If you can wait a minute...at least see how coffee lake performs and costs...then make your mind up then.

  6. What do you think? Will I regret buying Ryzen 1600 when the new intel lineup will come out? I am really curious. :)

    Yes, because the single and multicore architectural improvements going from Kaby lake to coffee lake are speculated to be significant. The reason for this is so Intel can win back the majority of their market share, that has been taken by Ryzen's price to performance value. I'll believe it when I see it, but it's worth waiting for. Ryzen's lineup improvement was impressive compared to their last generation, but that's because their last generation was released 5 years ago. Their single core performance is still very lacking compared to intel imho.

  8. #1: The current power supply may not be enough, what graphics card are you using, or will upgrade to?
    #2: What display or displays will you use? It's all fair and well dropping a top flight CPU/MB/RAM into the system along with a powerful graphics card but that will all be wasted on a 60Hz 1080 screen.

    If you can wait, then wait, see what Coffee Lake brings to the table, it should be out in a few months, if you can't wait we really need you to answer #1 and #2.

    As I said. It will be enough. I know how to calculate power consumption. This be quiet can handle 450w no problem even though it's 400 only. The same with 600w be quiet psu and enermax psu's. Don't say that my psu will not handle as I know what I am doing. I am too lazy to tell you my specs , but I do know the advatages and disadvantages of buying intel over ryzen. Only asked.: WILL I REGRET BUYING RYZEN. I do agree I might if intel releases great cpu's , but ryzen 1600 would last me for couple of years for sure.

    Please read the post again. The only reason why is that I wrote to not say anything other than helping with choosing the cpu subject.
