As I have to get whole new system except my GTX 1070 (old one is going to my son) price difference is not that huge and I think that extra cores/threads will help out in the long run. What do you guys think?
The best value is the 3700X, game performance between the 2 is minimal. Heavy workloads would be a different story as this is where the 3900X shines.
