Cutting edge perhaps but never top tier. I have no need for an I7 over a 5 for example nor need 32+GB of ram. I work on servers/networks all day long, don't need a powerhouse system at home for the little I use it these days. My played games for the last month were BloonsTD and Toe Jam and Earl. Hah.In the end, if you're the guy who buys cutting edge and rides it for a decade (2500k doesn't seem to indicate that) than waiting for AM5 might be the right choice. If not, you could build a fast, solid system for not a lot of money and have a huge upgrade vs your 2500k right now.
I have a hard time getting rid of hardware that works. So much e-waste in the world. I'll probably wait till AM5 hits the masses and buy AM4 on clearance.
