vedranzver said: Simple question. I will use it till at least 2020, I will overclock the 1700, and I plan to game and mess around with photoshop, adobe programs from time to time as well as some videos (not 4k). I have a gtx 1060 and a 60Hz 1080p monitor. I know that the 2600x is faster in most games, but it loses in ashes of the singularity, witcher, and other games like such. Also keep in mind that they are the same price. Overclocked 1700 vs 2600x. Please answer it asap. I’d personally go with the 2600x despite it having two less cores. 20% better single threaded performance alone is why I’d buy it.
