8700k is a 6 cores 12 threads CPU. Although a 3600 is most value for money today, there is a possible use case for 8 cores 16 threads just a few years down the road.

If your workload is just gaming today, 3600 is fantastic value but if you want a little more performance for video encoding/transcoding etc, a 3700X is better and won't need an upgrade in a few years' time.
by then u probably gonna upgrade ur system lo
