Okay, so I'm planning out a cheap-ish PC right now and I'm looking to get roughly i5 range of performance. I was looking at either an i5-6500 or a used 4460. My question is, should I wait for Ryzen 5 and 3? When do they drop? I have an i5-2500 system that I've been using for the time being and see no issues except I'd like modern I/O options such as USB 3/3.1, DDR4, etc. All those new fancy things. I don't want to spend the money on Ryzen 7, besides I think preorders are gonna eat up stock for a while. I don't do anything fancy, just play Minecraft, Witcher, Assassin's Creed, Dolphin Emulator, other console emulators for older systems. Miiiiiiiight video edit a small amount every now and then.
