I could buy a Ryzen 7 1700 for $200 CDN. Would also need a new motherboard and DDR4 RAM as I am using DDR3 with my Skylake. New RAM is pretty expensive, used not much cheaper. Selling off my old parts and buying the new parts when all's said and done would probably cost me about $200 out of pocket not counting time and energy. Worth the upgrade? First gen Ryzen doesn't seem to have the best gaming performance no matter how many cores and threads they pack, though that is slowly changing with games like Battlefield 5.
