For reference, I went from an i5-4670k to an i7-4790k (found one on eBay refurbed for $200) and the improvement in using OBS for streams while playing supp comm, having photoshop open, like 20+ chrome tabs, some music, etc etc was amazing.

Battlefield 1, I was seeing frames drop to 20-30 during large explosions and with the i7 it stayed above 60 at all times; that is what I mean by frame stability, Koppa. It's quite worthwhile if you have hardware like I do where a GTX1080 needs to feed a g-sync monitor to keep 60+ fps.

Well, Lionhardt, I wish you the best of luck. Your money in the end and this is just my 2 cents.

Edit: also I play at 2k resolution. i

You can get very cheap I7's on ebay ! Would be my choice in your case. I got a complete rig there just without gfx card for 400 Bucks 4930k included + 32 GB ram! I had a hug step up when i got the old 4930k 6 Core and u can Oc it if u want to..but im super happy with it ! Even in super long games on Setons etc. im running at +1

Also it depends what mobo u got already to put an I7 on it. If u have to buy everything new, then a Ryzen might be good too i dunno or an I5 as the other suggests.

best regards

Probably also worth asking where you're from as that can affect your choice.

Don't know about other places outside the US but down in Mordor AMD/ATI is almost non-existent.

Nice price for an i7-8700 CPU. Personally I would wait for Skylake as it will feature a single core boost up to 4.9ghz or something absurd, but this is still nice.

Confirmed it can be shipped through eBay international, too:

$330 instead of $400:

EDIT: it's Canon lake in 2018 Skylake is old one
