Wait for the new Coffee Lake Intel CPU's to come out. At the very least they should drive the current prices down.

Why Coffee lakes will drive current prices down? Perhaps used parts but not major discount is expected for older Intel parts.

As for those parts, Ryzen 5 1600X or Ryzen 7 1700 are much better choices than 2 year old Skylake architecture.

Usually launch of new parts from Intel do drive prices of older parts, IMHO.   Some times not much though.  

 

If you need or not need to change the system depends on what games you play.   If the current system is giving you decent frame rates for the games you play then why change?

 

There is an app on Steam that makes frame rates go up because it puts the system into gaming mode by freeing resources from Windows processes.  May be try that?  It's called CPU Cores and it's one of the best selling apps on Steam.

Unless of course, they need or desire the absolute highest framerates for some of the games where the above CPUs sometimes have difficulty with keeping up with 144 Hz refresh rates...

The new 8400 and 8700K are reviewed at Anandtech...

 

The 8400 looks very nice, gaming performance-wise, at $184! Takes the 7700K in a few titles, in fact, at first glance...
