    Built my gaming rig 4 years back, and upgraded GPU to RTX 2080 TI last year. Will I see any real performance difference upgrading the CPU from i7-6700K to a Ryzen 3rd gen series or Intel 10th gen series? Or should I wait for next gen? Advice appreciated!

    I went to a Ryzen 5 3rd gen, and I don't regret it.

    That's what I was thinking, too - what MB did you end up with?

    , check your cpu usage when gaming, if 100% or near than upgrade. Also it depends really on what kind of games you play and what have running in the background too. In general the video card is a higher priority than the cpu and the video card will be most of the time the first one to bottleneck (the exception here can a hdd for loading levels and starting up games etc.).
