I am thinking of selling my laptop (i7-7700hq, 1060 6gb, 16gb ram, 256gb m.2 ssd, 500gb ssd) and picking up a Ryzen 2700 + 1070ti build, I have a few cases and PSUs kicking around so I "only" need motherboard, CPU, RAM, GPU to get me going, then I'll grab some more storage as I need it. I bought the laptop around 6 months ago because I didn't have the space, but now I do. So my question is, is it worth selling the laptop while it still has current gen graphics (for ease of selling) then picking up a Ryzen 2700 + 1070ti? It seems like no one really knows when the next gen of cards are coming out so I might be waiting forever. I don't exactly have money burning a hole in my pocket, but it's starting to get pretty toasty in there! My choice of Ryzen 2700 over 8th gen Intel is that it's way cheaper than the i7's and I have started streaming as a bit of a hobby ( check out MrMattics on Twitch ) and the extra cores/threads would be magical for encoding. The single threaded performance difference isn't a huge bother as they are pretty dang fast anyway.
