well yes if your PC is only meant for gaming then its not really the best choice.
on the other hand it's price is good considering you get twice as many cores with its decent performance.
with this in mind, for a general purpose PC for you end up with a more cost effective rig.
and on that note, if you already have a Haswell or higher rig, theres not much point in upgrading.
unless your rig has different workloads like autocad or video editing, something where an 8core Ryzen chip can out-perform a 4core or 6core intel chip.
so in my case i might abstain, digging up a couple of reviews here and there came up with a bunch of issues i might not like.
and considering i already have an i5 6500 skylake rig, albeit a bit lacking, would hold for me until AMD releases a version2 Zen processor.
