This is not worthy of a posting. It's this price pretty much everywhere

What I'm tired of is no good deals on 2700x or 8700 at newegg (non-ebay).

Ryzen 7 2700 used to be a bit lower than this just 2 days ago.

If you're looking for any kind of value, you might as well remove Intel from the list. 2700x is really just a slightly overclocked 1800X. Just get the latter.

1800x doesn't come with a cooler and I've never built a pc, so don't want to fool with a cooler and thermal paste myself. And the overall benches show the 8700 ahead of the 2700x in most areas for a lower price. The only advantage the amd has at all is for the few programs that are properly set up to best utilize the extra cores and threads. So that is why I still consider intel. And I'd save money. The cheapest 2700x and x470 combo is usually like $430, whereas the cheapest 8700 and z370 combo is usually around $380.

Are you talking gaming or just programs in general? Without concrete info, it's hard for people who read your post to be informed. A more helpful post would be something like this:
For gaming, most games will benefit from Intel's architecture, IPC and clockspeed. For someone who uses Sony Vegas pro or the ilk, they'd be better off with the higher core count from Amd. From CPC... measured the 2700X to be 9% better than the 8700k on raw calculations (video encoding, Mathematica, PovRay, Blender, 3DSMax, Corona); and they measured the 8700k to be 14% better than the 2700X at gaming (measured FPS on GTA5, GRID autosport, Battlefield 4, Arma 3, X3:TC, Witcher 3, CoH 2, Project cars). Allegedly, premiere pro benefits from Intel as well with the update as it uses the cpu based graphics to accelerate the program.

edit: also, you could still use an x370 board with the 2700x and get similar oc's as you would on x470(for now.. there may be optimization updates in the future) or use a nice b350 board if you wanted to pinch a penny and didn't need bleeding edge oc's
second edit: the 8700 can use the somewhat new h370 boards if you wanted to save a few bucks as well

I snagged the Ryzen 7 2700 last week for $240. Installing it today, hope I didn't make a mistake!

Why not use Innovation Cooling's graphite thermal pad? Linus Tech Tips did a review on it and it performed better than thermal paste and it was reusable. No need to worry about it drying up on you. All you have to do is spec out an AM4 cooler.

I've posted details before, but most people don't care or respond so I stop typing it all out. I do not game. But many programs do not benefit from the extra cores, either. No matter which type of software you are using, there is no guarantee that the AMD improves performance.

And i forgot to mention, back to the 1800x, look on newegg.... the prices for the 1800x with no cooler are MORE than prices for the 2700x with cooler.

Applying thermal paste is about as difficult as applying toothpaste. Installing a motherboard is a lot more difficult than installing a cpu fan.

Whole thing will be complicated for me. I was hesitant to even build one. But I was never happy with prebuilt pc specs.

Well don't worry about the thermal paste. I've built about 5 computers from the ground up and replaced fans in another 2 or 3. And I'm at IT tech by trade. The easiest thing to do is put a pea sized squirt in the middle of the chip and then install the fan on top. I've never had a cpu go into thermal protect or blue screen on me for that reason.
