New CPU, MoBo, RAM, PSU

Hello everyone,

After 6 years with the same cpu, mobo, ram, and psu, it is time for me to upgrade my system.

Currently I have
CPU: i7-3770
GPU: Gigabyte 1070 windforce OC 2-way sli
MoBo: Asus P8Z77-V deluxe
RAM: 16gb (4x4) corsair vengeance @ 1600mhz
PSU: XFX pro850w XXX edition
HDD: 1tb @ 7200 rpm
SSD: samsung 840 series 250gb
Case: Phanteks Eclipse P400S
network card: TP link ac1750

some extra details:
I have a Phanteks Enthoo Primo (which can fit an eatx) in storage that I can use. I also have a 128gb M.2 SSD thats just sitting on my desk, so M.2 support would be helpful.

basically taking any comments and more importantly suggestions on a rebuild. I have an $800-900 budget.

    Personally I'd keep the PSU, it's a pretty good one. Then down to your preference really, i7 8700k/Z370/16GB RAM for gaming or Ryzen 7 2700x/X470/16GB RAM (3000Mhz minimum) for more all round use.

    Thanks for the input, but I was wondering why you chose the 8700k over the 9700k?
  3. Just because the 9700k isn't widely available yet. I'd get the 9700k over the 8700k as long as it's not more than 5-10% more expensive.
