What's everyone's opinion on LGA2066 v AM4.
AMD says they'll make CPUs for it until 2020. If I buy an AMD is 3 years going to give me enough of an upgrade path to justify the purchase?
or... Should I get on the 2066 train and hope that an i9 is more affordable in a five six years?
I figure my budget for CPU/MOBO is around $500.
i5 7640x w/ Fatal1ty ($500)
Ryzen 7 1800x w/ Fatal1ty ($500)
It looks like the i5 does better with FPS on new release games, but I play Doom and like to make/edit videos.
I've always went with AMD in the past, but I thought Intel was the cats pajamas.
I'm leaning toward Ryzen now that I've done more research.
I haven't built a PC in quite a while now, and it's always the same thing. It's a lot of money and buyers remorse is a mother fucker.
Any insight would be appreciated.
