OP seems to be playing on a 1440p monitor, so this benchmark would be more appropriate:Normally I'd agree with you, but Destiny 2 (which the OP specifically mentioned) doesnt really scale beyond 4C/4T:
I'm not exactly sure how how a 3570K @ 4.2GHz compares to a stock 7600K but it shouldnt be that far off. The stock 7600K is about 10% ahead of a 1700 @ 3.9GHz, so a 2700X should just about draw equal.
It would be a HUGE productivity upgrade, but if the OP is looking for a big improvement in 120fps+ gaming in Destiny 2 he may be a bit disappointed in the gains compared to his 3570K.
Also remember that this is an older benchmark without Intel's 8000 and AMD's 2000 series. Since it doesn't seem to scale much beyond 4C/4T, you can still figure it out somewhat though. A stock 2700X would be considerably better than the 1700 @ 3.9GHz here. IPC improvements and probably running around 4.1-4.2GHz as not all cores are loaded.
Of course, overclocking changes everything up if you went with the 8600k.
