R5 1500X might be only around 180$! Also if you are fan of 144Hz as I am you probably know that i7 7700K 5GHz wont give you that in MP games, what will give you 144Hz+ is optimization and moar cores.
I can tell you and every owned of i7 6800K that at 4.4GHz it will just murder i7 7700K 5GHz in BF1 MP.
And thats why I wont agree with reviewers, because they wont show that i7 7700K is loosing it...
You can just check BF1 forum how people are crying, because of their i7 is at 100% load and GPU is under 80%.
