Why stop at $65? If you just want adequate 4K 60 or less fps, GPU limited gaming performance, why not same some more money and go R3 1300x? The two will perform roughly the same see: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-7-1700-vs-AMD-Ryzen-3-1300X/3917vs3930 http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_ryzen_3_1200_and_1300x_review,24.html http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/foru...ryzen-3-1300x-1200-performance-review-11.html The R7 1700 will win at lower at the resolution 1080p but we all know that the AMD marketing has said doesn't count, if you believe them, and people should go 4K right? Otherwise you'd better go back to the 7700k. But if you go with the 1300x you can now save $225. That diffrence is price of a single GTX1060 or big GPU upgrade like between a GTX1070 and GTX 1080. All the Ryzen CPUs are overpriced, especially the R7s. Unless you are building a server/render farm they don't fit the bill for gaming and they don't fit the bill for budget builds.
