Im currently struggling choosing a new CPU from the 38 linked below. Ive researched alot of the specs alot of which im told is something I should not be worrying about. The prominent deciding factors seem to be GHz, Cores/Threads and Socket.
The use is games.
Which leads me to a massive problem. Ive heard AMD will no longer be making AM4 CPUs and we will not be getting a replacment socket until 2021. Ive had my heart set on AMD.
Im unable to wait until then as my 7yr PC has just died.
What other deciding factors does everyone use to choose a CPU? Orignally I was going to have the Ryzan 5 1600X two years ago. At the moment im looking at the Ryzen 7 3800X and im question the Threadrippers, although im worried if thats overkill.
