I have a custom build from 2013 with a FX6300 and mediocore Gigabyte 970A-DS3P.
With all the advanced in technology these days, I've been thinking about possibly swapping out either my CPU, or both CPU/Motherboard.
I don't want to invest terribly much into my desktop as I generally use it for light gaming, and mostly just browsing, so breaking the bank doesn't make sense to me.
With AMD Zen coming out, do y'all think the FX8350 will significantly drop in price, and be a cheaper option to just swap out? I have a mediocore ASTEK 510LC liquid cooler currently on my 6300.
Should I wait closer to Black Friday to pick up an older generation core i5 and motherboard and swap it all out?
I'd appreciate any insight. I have recently acquired a GTX 1060 for my rig, a massive upgrade from my AMD 7770.
