Hey, casual gamer here, no interest in overclocking, but I wanna buy a system that's futureproofed. I built my last 2 PCs long ago, probably gonna make a build here and have MicroCenter build it so I can pick it up :)
I am upgrading from an i7-4790K 4.0 (4core 8thread) and an MSI VII hero MB. Almost anything will be an upgrade haha.
7700x is for sure overkill, but what about motherboards that don't have overclocking etc? As far as a videocard I might wait till 3070ti drops a bit and use my 5700xt for now.
You want it to be future proof so it rules out AM4. Intel is also likely to change socket on 14th gen cpu. So that leaves AM5 with ddr5 which currently are ridiculously pricey. Also I don't think they released any AM5 non overclockable A620 motherboard yet.
Ahh yeah. I mean I do not even think I will be looking to change processors down the line but eh, I am casual and just wait till it's all slow and replace. lol
