Question Dead Mobo, New Intel Build

So looks like my ASUS Z87 Sabertooth motherboard died and I'll be needing to buy another 1150 mobo or just starting over and getting some new core components. Haven't been as involved in the computer community for the past 4 years so I'm pretty behind on all the new tech. Before my board died, it had a 4770K, 16GB of Corsair Vengence RAM, and a EVGA GTX770. I'm contemplating selling the CPU and RAM and just buying a new CPU, RAM, Mobo combo, or selling the CPU, RAM, and GPU to recoup the cost of buying all of it new.

I'm not a huge video editor, but I do have a 1440P monitor that I would love to continue to do casual gaming on. I mostly play CSGO, a not too terribly strenuous game, but love having the flexibility of playing new games on decent settings on 1440P. I don't have a set number for a budget, and I don't mind paying a premium for future proofing to last another 5 years.

Any advice would be appreciated.

You might want to consider going with AMD Ryzen instead if you are buying a new motherboard RAM and CPU anyway

Yeah I've thought about it, but I've always been an Intel fanboy. If AMD has really made a come back, I'd love to know more about why I'd go AMD over Intel other than just price.

I've given this whole mishap some thought and figured I might as well replace a few things anyways since it's very dated. Here's what I've come up with...

I was asked to build a PC for someone i know and after looking at it i picked the Ryzen 2600x as its only slightly slower than the 8600K but also comes in at a lower price point

Its well worth thinking about going AMD instead of Intel as their newest CPU´s are a total joke and Intel is like a headless chicken running around without knowing what they are doing at least in the HEDT part of the market

Buying Intel is bad idea right now as their next gen of CPU´s are already on the way due to AMD Ryzen being as good as they are in the mainstream part of the market

I would also like to point out that the CPU cooler you picked in that build is overpriced and overrated so consider an air cooler instead its better cheaper more quiet and more reliable
https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...lc-cooler.html

And last drop the idea of getting an NVME SSD as they are not faster or better in any way due to software limitations in Windows
Unless you are a Linux user or you are working with huge workloads of programs where the drive is the bottleneck dont bother with NVME its a waste of money for most users

If you really want an SSD based on the M.2 form factor you can get M.2 SSD´s with the older AHCI protocole such as the Samsung 860 Evo and the Crucial MX500
Fanboys are dumb and anti consumer so please dont call yourself that

Look at this video


The 2700x has a lower price point than the 8700K has two more cores a higher clock speed and is pretty much on par with the 8700K in most games

Quote from that review: Both stock and overclocked configurations of the 2700X beat the 8700K in most workloads, though there are times where the higher clocked Coffee Lake CPU will pull ahead. It's fair to say they trade blows

Besides that the 2700x runs cooler than the 8700K does and if they trade blows but the 2700x has more cores is cheaper and runs cooler why buy an 8700K?
For gaming and nothing else yes Intel is a tiny bit better but for other types of workloads the 2700x pulls ahead

AMD Ryzen is a better value option compared to what Intel has to offer and its well worth it to consider and not just go with Intel because thats what you been doing for the last 10 years

AMD Ryzen is a better value option compared to what Intel has to offer
From the review they stated gaming is better on coffee lake when seeking high FPS.

Correct me if I'm wrong but Ryzen likes lower CAS RAM than Intel, so where you save on processor price you make up for in price for low CAS RAM.

My mobo is not quite dead, but I'm in a similar situation of wanting to upgrade from a 3570K/Z77 platform.

If you can wait it out until next month, see what the upcoming i9 9900K (8c/16t) has to offer, then make your decision. I'm torn between the high clocks for Intel since I do run 3440x1440 @ 120Hz, but the price and upgradeability of AMD 2600/2700(X) to next year's Zen 2 is quite appealing.
