Hey folks, been away from tech scene for a while now but i figured the best place to ask any tech related question would be here with all you fine peoples
Im currently using a 4770K with 16Gb of RAM and a GTX1080, whilst the whole system works quite well for the most part there are occasional signs its showing its age. I have been taking a look around at the various new cpu's and tbh its all become very confusing ( im getting old ), however im quite taken with the performance/value of the Ryzen 2600X and according to my limited research it would seem to be a better cpu than my current 4770k.
As a guide for usage i use the PC for gaming @ 4K, video production/editing, photo work, and general office use. Gaming wise the PC works very well and no real problems with the fps in games, office work is much the same, however video editing/rendering feels slower ( or im just getting more impatient ).
So my questions would be >
1) Is it worth the upgrade to a AMD 2600X + 16Gb DDR4 ?
And the stupid question i think i already know the answer to >
2) Will changing the hardware require clean install of Win 10 and programs ?
The last AMD cpu i used was an FX 8350 but ive been with the blue team a while now and it seems on paper the 2600X has a lot to give for the money.
Your thoughts as always appreciated
