Yeah, a 7700k and a 1080 will last for a good while at 1080p. 720p/30FPS streaming shouldn't be an issue, and you can probably manage 60FPS in some scenarios.

In short, Zen is going to be iterated on several times on 14nm (until 2020) and with what we know of AMD's segmentation scheme (Ryzen, TR, Epyc) there is no pending platform change on the mainstream AM4 which would require changes to the socket nor is AMD likely to merge the mainstream and HEDT/server platforms given that Ryzen mainstream is PGA while the others are LGA. Add to that AMD's history of socket consistency and, unless specifically stated otherwise, the most efficient technological and financial decision is to iterate on Zen within the context of the AM4 platform.
