Well yeah no one does, but sometimes it's the only option.
What do you mean when you say cutting corners? As long as your system can be upgraded when your needs change, I don't see anything wrong with saving some cash. And i don't mean saving just because. If you can get a 7700K, don't get a 7100. People often don't understand that the quality of what you get is what you pay for. Also I don't think you should spend just because. I see why you'd want a 6950X, I even understand why you'd want quad channel, but not 256Gb of memory. That's just a waste. Maybe you could use the money for a better cooler, a cooler for your cards, a better motherboard, better storage, better monitor, speakers, sound card, or faster RAM even. There is always something to spend on, and limited money, so wasting it in something you won't use shouldn't be an option.
