I have mixed feelings about ther 8700K. On one hand it is the best gaming chip right now. On the other it really limits upgrade path for the platform. Just look at how the 7700K owners got shafted. 6 months after kaby launch, it's already superseded and without upgrade possibility to coffee lake due to a mere pin change.

If your going intel side, nevermind the 7700K. Get a 8700K. DCS may be a single or dual core afair, but for how long? We are headed multicore and DCS will eventually join the bandwagon. It's not like the price of both CPU's or motherboards are THAT different.

Get the bigger chip.

1) "eventually" might mean 10 years or more. Look how long it has taken to get EDGE.

2) The worst part about 8700k and Z370 is the complete lack of PCIe expansion. You get one video card slot, and... not much else. Can't really maximize the processor if you can't feed the processor enough data. This is the worst part about the 8700k.

The RAM costs 550 euros.
But (too) expensive is a relative thing for this hobby.

I just looked at the order and to my surprise I see the 8700K is already in the shop.

Only waiting for:
EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid
M.2 Samsung 960 PRO 1 TB
Logitech Mouse G900 Chaos Spectrum
