  1. Best answer
    gaming? yes
    streaming? barely
    editing? might be
    on rendering though, u might gonna spend most of your time waiting for your render process

    my suggestion:
    Coffelake / Ryzen
    at least i5 on the coffelake [though the i7 would be much better] -> i5 8600k / i7 8700k
    at least R5 on the Ryzen [R5 1600 is the best bang in the buck, but u'll get more processing power with the R7] -> R5 1600 / R7 1700

    all the CPU that i recommend above are able to handle GTX 1080 just fine :)

  3. Yes. For a Ryzen build or an Intel Coffeelake (8000 series) you'd need a new board.

    Cheapest route to go is probably going for an i7-7700. Does fair better than the i5 in editing and streaming, better minimum FPS, not as high max FPS.
    However B350 boards can be found for 65$ so depending on the price tag on the i7, a Ryzen 1600+mainboard could still be cheaper (given that you don't use an OEM windows version tied to.your mainboard)

    If you're editing and rendering a lot, getting a Ryzen 1600 or 1700 is definitely worth it
    Rendering times are cut in half compared to an i7.
    But it's of course a matter of budget.

  5. Because well Ryzen is for content creators and Intel's i7 and i5s are kinda mostly for content creators as well but more for gaming?Am I correct?Will the I7 be compatible with my motherboard?

  6. Ok well I'll buy the 1080 save money then I'll just buy the mother board and the Ryzen 1600 probably 1700 thanks guys for helping me out!One last question what mother board for the Ryzen cpu?

  7. Intel does better in gaming.
    however it always depends on what you're aiming for.
    at 60Hz refresh rate, Ryzen as Intel will be fine.
    for content creation Ryzen usually beats Intel, not always in the applications used to create the content, but in (de)compression, rendering, etc. Ryzen has extra juice.

    the i7-7700 will be compatible with your current board.

    as for Ryzen, I personally like the Asus B350 Strix-F. but it's a bit more expensive. cheaper boards like the AsRock B350 Pro4, Gigabyte (A)B350-Gaming or the MSI B350 Tomahawk will do fine

    it's not like that really

    R5 are more geared toward giving the mainstream consumer extra core count at affordable price [at least that's what it said on the promotion XD], not necessarily targetting content creators mate [that's more of R7 and threadripper's job imo]

    of course u're right on some part, intel had better performance in terms of gaming, but seeing u need both gaming power and productivity power, Ryzen 5 1600 can give u a more balanced performance, while paying less [than their respective intel counterparts like the i5 7600k / i5 8600k]
    u won't notice any difference if u're playing on 60hz / 75 hz, u will see them once we're talking about 120hz / 144hz

    seeing your socket right now, the i7 7700 just fine, but given that it is a locked CPU, expect limited lifespan than their unlocked counterparts [K edition] (if ur mobo is Z series, get the K instead, it'll help your system's "futureproofing" and lifespan)

    Edit:
    mobo for Ryzen
    B350 is the best series imo :), offers almost everything that X370 had except the SLI certification and lacking some feature, but nothing too essential imo...
    something like Asrock B350 Pro4 / MSI B350 PC Mate are good enough, depends on your budget really, if u want the extra gaming aesthethic, there are a lot of option for the gaming series mobo out the to choose from, i recommend whichever mobo u're getting, get a series with 4 RAM slot :D
