We need way more information... What framerates are you looking to hit, what games do you plan on playing, how much are you looking at spending?

want tDead Resource Found on Your Website want to play games like battlefield and my budget is $400 around maximum

$400 for an entire gaming system? With the GPU prices currently, that's going to be hard to do. If I were you, I would wait on the gpu, as the prices will hopefully drop eventually. For $400, you can't look at too expensive of CPUs. Something alont the lines of the Intel Pentium G4400 would fit in that budget. Paired with a 1050 or cheaper rx 460 would comfortably play battlefield and other such games smoothly. The RX 460 is still really affordable, even in this mining craze. You could always buy used aswell. Hope I was of some help.

In Game benchmarks in the titles you intend to play is the only real way to answer that question.

And then find the best you can afford inside your budget without causing compromises elsewhere in the build.

1600x overclocks to 4.1 ghz easily

For the 8700k overclocking even with a good motherboard and cooler would dramatically decrease the lifespan if done recklessly.

I wouldn't say the 1600x "easily" overclocks to 4.1. IIRC, its only the top 5-10% of chips that will hit that. 4.0 is likely, but it all comes down to silicon lottery. And Titancon is correct, if not done properly (too much voltage), you'll kill any CPU, not just the 8700k.

True, unless you have a gigabyte GA with it. The replacement wasn't barely handled overclocking to 4ghz without my socket dying even with a heat-sync, we are talking about AMD here.
