The fact of matter is that I am looking to upgrade my i7-7700 (does not pass mustard in W11...) to Alder Lake. But it means REALLY new components. I may save the memory and the Graphics Card (NVIDIA 1050), but everything else, including the boa is new.

Boa?

You might save your case and PSU. But in 2022 I'd be leaning towards a new GPU . Hopefully we can find them next year. Faster memory. What speed does your 7700 support?  The Alderlake DDR4 systems are likely to support 3600 without overclocking the memory. The DDR5 are I think 4800.

My guess is the i5 aka 12600k will be the sweet price for value/performance but once you buy a high end MB,case, PSU and memory the added 100 or 150 for a 12700K might seem small in the overall budget.
