My good old Phenom! It has treated me well, minus the fact that I lost the overclocking lottery. I could never keep it stable above 3.3GHz, which was not a great result at all for these chips back in the day. I'm waiting to see how Intel responds. If they get into a price war, I'll probably pounce later this year depending on who has the best value. If Intel doesn't bite though and sticks with current pricing, I have my eye on the 1600X. That way I would get the higher base clock speeds for gaming, but I also get some extra cores for any multimedia work in the future. That unit at this point seems like the sweet spot based on the information we have so far. I'm waiting on some user benchmarks of the Ryzen 7 cpus in the next few weeks to see if these new processors are the real deal. I'm trying to find details about the motherboard chipsets and what the difference is. I know the x370 will have more PCI-e lanes, but I have no intention of ever running a multi-GPU setup, so am I better off saving ~$80-100 and getting a B350 mobo? I can't find a definitive answer anywhere yet. Maybe everything will make more sense in March once people actually are testing everything.
