The problem with this is you need a MB that cost nearly as much as this on the cheap end then you have to make sure your power supply you order(this was annoying that mine didnt) has 2 cpu connectors what a pain lol... Yea I know that's not related to the processor really but such a dumb thing a psu lacking connectors, I've also never seen a consumer cpu with 2 connectors either but this one is massive. Make sure you know the full cost of everything going in as the processor is a cost but only part of introduction into this platform. All that being said I have this exact one and it's pretty awesome that being said those 1800x that were selling for 329 sound like a better deal to me due to the extra component costs. Alas good deal on the processor though if you're really wanting an entry threadripper.

FYI AMD already has a 16 core/32 thread CPU in the form of the 1950x.

Consider the price hike of 8700k this is actually a good deal now.

Great deal, but I'll stick with my 1800x.

Got a case, 2 mobos, 2 PSUs, and the CPU for ~$520. I'll look to sell off the extra components for around $100 on the low end.

How much better are these than the 1700s? I game + stream + do audio engineering
At the same time? Don't quote me in this but my understanding is that the main reason to get this is to keep options open for maybe a 16 core 32 thread processor later. AMD has said they'd like to keep the same socket for three or four years and I don't see a reason to say they'll go against their word of there isn't a really good reason to do so. My two cents is if you don't make money from this computer, no. Don't buy this.

What's the reason to buy this over 1800X? If you want Threadripper, I think it makes more sense to go for the 1950X for the 16 core.

Unless you're building a super high end system with 4 sticks of RAM and multiple video cards, you're much better off with a 1700x which was $230 for BF?

I think he knows that. He meant if you want to upgrade to one down the road.

Yeah, it's unfortunate that the motherboards START around ~$300 - many of which aren't particularly special. Adds an unnecessary $200 to the price tag, even for 'enthusiast' purchasers. Otherwise would definitely bite for some programming work I'd like to to use it for.
