It's a no-brainer. Half the price for a top intel cpu. But i know its fictitious.

The Pook I have yet to see any benchmark where the Ryzen 7 2700 beats the 9900K, so if you can get a 9900K for $240, then obviously that.

Keep in mind with a 2700 you'd be able to upgrade to the 3000 series without buying a new motherboard, and based on Intel's history in the past you'll likely need an new mobo for whatever they have planned next. I have a feeling the 7nm Ryzen chips are going to stomp all over Intel and I'm really excited to see them.

What if you can pick up a 9900k for 247 or a 9700k for 190 or a 8700k for 183?

The Witcher 3 really does look a lot better at 4k. And the devs switched the physx to cpu after a few updates, but I heard there might be some ini type setting, or maybe a mod to get it back on your gpu . If you could do that it should help where there is a lot of candles/fires around. I played W3 for a while in 3d(at 1080p since the 3d on my VA 4k tv is trash) and I had to replay those parts.

That depth of view term is just some term I came up with to describe how you can't see near and far at the same time in 3d like a regular monitor. You have to change where your eyes focus and that takes time. Everything outside your depth of view is kind of cross eyed, just like real life. I turned the 3d up because I wanted more 3d and my depth of view was pretty shallow and the archers kept taking me by suprise. Then I'd look at them and Geralt would be out of focus and under attack. Maybe there is a better term for it, but that is one of the reasons I don't like 3d gaming. Serious Sam BFE vr kicks butt though.

And a Ryzen, like others have mentioned, sounds like a good upgrade path. If you get tired of 3d at 4k, or not, you can always use it for 4k60 and the 2000 series 6c12t should be a good buy for that.

If you get a mobo that's another $30 off. You can't beat those prices and at 1440p & 4K it's all up to your GPU. You won't have any CPU bottleneck.

As for 1080p3D. What tends to happen is that my CPU can't keep up. I know this because I have tried. Even at 1440p, Witcher 3 ultrad will dip in GPU usage. GTA V is the biggest issue because of some bug, it cuts CPU usage on 3D so it almost doesn't matter the resolution

Another thing to note, at 1080p, the games (at least Witcher 3) just doesn't look that sharp. I compromised at 3200 x 1800 to help with sharpness and get a little more usage from my GPU.

its a tricky situation. the 3D to me is worth it. but its stretching my 930 for sure.

junglechocolate What is this depth of view thing you talk about?

My only issue with 3D games is that there is not enough "coming at you" as I'd like. Its still there and waaaaay much better than flat 2D
