post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am not getting rid of my X58 stuff either. That is going to be rebuilt into another rig and I am getting a x56** for overclocking and mucking around with.

You will not see a difference in gaming between the r7 1700 and the r5 1600, the 1600 is an amazing deal and it comes with a capable cooler to boot. The 1700 comes with a cooler but unless you do professional compute workloads the 1600 is the best all rounder cpu money can buy right now. Even at stock you will witness a huge difference in minimum frames and 0.1% and 1% lows.

The 1600 is the choice as far as all the videos i have seen.
