Currently the 2rd Gen Ryzen is on a huge price cut and I want to take advantage of it (Canadian Dollars), the original price for the 2700x is $434 CAD and the 2700 is $389 CAD, currently they sell for $344 CAD and $259 CAD after the 30% Price Cut. I just got started in doing Youtube Content and my current CPU (Ryzen 2600) cannot record high bitrate (50000-70000) without the game lagging hella' hard with frames flying everywhere from 30 FPS to 2 FPS. I took some research and figured that the Ryzen 7 Series is a great option if I wanted to both Record and Play Games without having frame drops (High Quality Recording). But here I am just asking for confirmation on which one I should choose, the 2700 or the 2700x. The 3rd Gen 7 Series is out of my range so that will be a straight, "No". I am running on a RX 580 that usually produces 100+ Frames in the games I play so I should be fine in the GPU part range. The Ram is also fine having 16 GB of RAM. Remember this is HIGH BITRATE Recording, not a average streaming bitrate quality.
