I've been putting off my new build for a while now, waiting to see whether a ryzen was a better buy than an I7-7700k.
I still remain optimistic. The news about the cpus themselves have been positive, if albeit all from the horse's mouth basically. I won't fully trust how powerful it is claimed to be until someone takes it home and then overclocks it.
The thing that worries me is the motherboard offerings in March. The ones i have seen have not impressed me AT ALL after having looked at Z270 motherboards. Very possible i'm missing something super special they are doing new that makes it all worth it in the end, but i can't help but be disappointed.
