Thinking about possibly upgrading my 3930K system to a 7800X system. System is mostly used for crunching with some minor gaming every now and then. My only concern is is it actually worth it? How much of a performance gain will the upgrade yield? The 3930k has served me very well, and still does what I ask of it, but is there enough of a performance increase between the 3930k and 8700X to justify the cost of the upgrade? The upgrade would cost about $1000 including a much needed and overdue SSD. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/GDRMsJ And before anyone suggests it, $600 for a 8720X is out of my budget.
