    As the title states, I'm in a predicament with a surged board and now I need to upgrade.

    I've already decided (unless someone can change my mind) to cheap out and spend $1,000 on Mobo, CPU, and RAM together.

    My old system consisted of an i7-4930k and I'm thinking of doing a lateral move into the i7-7800x with Asus WS X299 SAGE mobo and Ripjaws G.Skill RAM.

    My question is, will this be future proof? What I don't want is to be stuck behind the times. These computer systems change more than REDs sensors and I know I can easily fall behind if I don't make the right decision. Luckily I'm on a MacBook Pro and it's getting the work done, for now...

    Changed my own mind and went with the i9 9900k, Asus Z390 Pro and Ripjaws still.
