1080ti-TITAN X users will buy Ryzen 7 instead.

I'm not so certain. Benchmarks are putting the 1600X OC (and therefore by extension the 1600) up there with the R7's and has them performing on par or above some of the older i7's as well as pretty much all but the 7600K I believe? Perhaps we can say that what AMD has really done is lowered the cost for an enthusiast CPU. You would never question someone pairing a 6800K with a 1080Ti, so why a 1600X? You don't require the highest end CPU to drive the highest end GPU at 4K. Let's also be clear though. The 6c/12t Ryzen lineup is only just shy of top tier performance.

Ive seen it done many times. Even on AMD 7850k people are using expensive GPUs.

That's what I'm planning to do.

Well I for one will be going for the 1600X/1080Ti combo. 1600X is all you need for 4k.

They go back and forth, imo not worth it. Next round

I'm planning on getting Vega and 1500x should be more than enough to push it at 1440p and above. 1060/480x is better suited for lower end CPUs like i3s, locked i5s and Ryzen 3. If one wants to get Ryzen for a production/workstation based build than Titan X makes perfect sense.

In basically every 1440p bench I have seen, the numbers between Intel and AMD are much closer.

Decision is simple... Get rid of the quad and get with modern times. It is not 2010 it is 2017.

I'd be leery about buying an Nvidia GPU with a Ryzen CPU at the moment. There is some evidence that Nvidia performance may be gimped with Ryzen CPUs.

My 8350 with is still my gamer with a Nvidia GTX 690. AMD seems like is slowing the down OC a tad on the 1500 and 1600 series. Should not OC be the same with less heat? The 8350, 6350 and 4350 were real close on the Ghz OC end. Maybe it will improve?

from what linus said the 1600x is the 1800x with 2 cores disabled but has the same amount of monster cache, and the 1600 is actually the 1700x cutdown. so that would mean the 1600x single thread speed should be the same as the 1800x which is perfect for most of us gamers. and 12 threads this fast at i5 prices is pretty much a no brainer.

think i will also go with a 1600x/1080ti(or vega) combo.

Thats the thing, if you can get a cheaper CPU that is adequate for high end GPUs, you have more money for the those GPUs. I always get a GPU that is on average at least twice as expensive as the CPU, because that is, ultimately, the most important component. Also if you are building a new system and can buy $180 CPU, you better get at least 2560x1080, I honestly do not know anyone who is on 1080p anymore. 1080p is for RX460/GTX 1050 and below, for people with a total budget of ~$500 that will not spend $180 on a CPU anyways.
