Which processor choice?
 
Might wait for Threadripper 3. Might not. Don’t want to spend too much on a dedicated gaming rig, so should I just grab a 9th Gen i5, or a I7?

Hi,
Waited this long might as well wait another month or two.

Wait for it. So worth the extra performance, if it's all what AMD says it is.

I'm assuming you meant Ryzen (3rd generation) and not Threadripper right? Threadripper would be a massive overkill expenditure for a gaming rig, so I'm just clarifying. If you are meaning Ryzen 3rd gen though I would definitely wait, especially if the 15% IPC icrease is true it would be a great all around chip that wouldn't limit you to just gaming but allow full multi-tasking purposes for whatever your needs/wants may be. Just my 2 cents
