So I think I have the parts that I want to get but I want to know what your opinion is. Take a look below and tell me if you would change out anything. I also do not know if I should go with the new AMD Ryzen CPU's or if I should go with the i7. What do you guys think???

Thanks in advance.

My only thought is, are you able to wait for i9 and ThreadRipper to come out first. Since that might give you more options to consider and may drop some prices.

Do we know when they are being released or are we waiting for E3 for that??
I think the i9-7900X is suppose to come out this month and then more powerful ones in August. Ryzen 9 (aka Thread Ripper) supposedly this summer.

I would get the Ryzen rig, but with the Taichi X370 board.
Its one of the best overclocking boards out there.
