    X299 vs Z270 for Gaming

    Hi,

    I'm currently planning to upgrade my system to a 1080Ti and new CPU+Mobo (RAM etc) and my question is if I want to be able to reach maximum performance for the next 2-3 years without my CPU becoming a bottleneck, will I manage with an 7700K or should I get one of the new ones for the X299 platform?

    The main usage of the system is gaming.

    Thank you for the help.

    Edit: Thinking of either getting the new Rampage Extreme or the Maximus IX Extreme

    As I understood, there will be 4 core CPUs for the X299 platform... and right now I'm seeing complaints about the 7700k running too hot when pushed...
    At this moment, if you don't have yet the 7700k, I would wait to see how the new CPUs will behave... although, they will come with paste instead of soldering under their IHS too (a solution the present 7700k has)

    Thanks for the responses =)

    I also run an extensive liquid cooling loop so any heat should be handled =P
