Help Me Decide Between AMD Vs Intel in 2017

I have been out of touch with the PC scene for past several years, I have no idea whats going on right now.

I need to buy a new PC, budget is 40-50k, over 2-3 months (cannot afford to buy/upgrade everything all at once)

Stuff i have right now (will need to test if everything works) :
  1. 1 TB seagate HDD
  2. AMD X4 955 BE 3.4 ghz cpu
  3. 4 GB DDR3 corsair ram
  4. HD 6770 1 gb ddr5
  5. palit GTX 260 sonic 800 mb ddr3 (bought 2nd hand)
  6. corsair VX450 450W
  7. tagan stonerock tg600 u37 700W unknown year (bought 2nd hand)
  8. nzxt gamma case (bought 2nd hand)
Everything except points 5 and 7 were bought in 2011, 5+7 were bought from here sometime in 2012.
Im leaning towards migrating to an intel cpu setup, but if using AMD saves me money im absolutely ok with it. (as in, buying a used am3+ motherboard and using the current cpu but upgrading to a fx later on)

I am out of touch with the whole pc components scene, but i know how to buy and assemble a pc.

Please advise!

Re: Help Me Decide Between AMD Vs Intel in 2017

Looking at your budget , i would say get yourself RYZEN . But if you looking for true power then get yourself intel i9 or Intel X series . Again its all depend how you gonna use your PC , Do you use your PC for mainly gaming or work . If you use for work purpose then only move for higher core amounts otherwise stick with highest clock power which is i7 7700K or i7 7740X .
Processor : Intel i7 6700K 4.2 Ghz
RAM : Corsair Vengeance 2 X 8 GB DDR4 3200 Mhz
Video Card : EVGA GTX 1080ti FTW3 11GB
Mother Board : GIGABYTE GAMING 7 Z170X
CPU Cooler : Corsair H100 Liquid Cooler
Cabinet : Cooler Master Mastercase Pro 5 Nvidia Edition
PSU: Seasonic Platinum Series SSXP2 860 Watt .
