So spend the 200$+ on the i5 7600k, then spend 200 more on a cheap used 7700k later? New Intel CPUs will probably be out before you want to upgrade anyway.
I was merely pointing out that upgrade options do exist, however unrealistic it is that a budget user will upgrade on a regular basis. Given Ryzen's per core performance, a thread upgrade is the only relevant thing in the next 5years for a Kaby Lake platform. It's not like Intel was making performance breakthroughs each generation.


Case in point consider that current ryzen mainboards are dual memory channel, intel's 6cores platform is quad channel, Skylake-E is hexa-channel. Like said not that i think upgradeabilty is a thing, but there is a bottleneck in current AM4 boards which will not age gracefully, socket compatibility or not.

I would go 1600/x 100% unless you only play older games and don't do anything else but browse the web on your pc.

7600k - No cooler, overclocking Z board, good enough cooler. And you even think that is worth to a chip with 6c/12t with a cooler that can sustain it to a 3.8 easily? And that all of this can be done on a B350 board? Come on. No room for comparison.

And games would fully take advantage of this. Ryzen is so fresh and we have seen enough promises so far.. Optimization will come to place.
