Not really. Sure you can pick up some cheap 2000 series AMD CPU's right now but that is going to be short lived. Yeah those are a good value for now but once stock runs out they will be done. And it looks like there are some decent value b365 boards. I saw an Asrock one with three nvme drive connectors, two for drives one for a wifi card for $85. Plus saw the guy on Tech City on youtube run a 9900k on it. Did fine was good cooling on the VRM's.

People keep screaming about AMD's platform and yeah it is upgradeable CPU wise but things are ever changing. We are about to move to USB 4 and DDR5 is around the corner. Both expected next year. So yeah those AMD boards will be able to upgrade the CPU's maybe one more generation but it seems to me Intel and AMD are in similar positions as far as you having to upgrade platforms or motherboards and CPU's if you the most up to date tech be it DDR5, USB 4 etc. That is why I am contemplating going super cheap build for now and going higher end next year or year after that because regardless my case front connectors, motherboard, and cpu won't offer the latest and greatest once those new technologies are released.
There is still 1000 series stock if that has anything to say in the matter.

that is because AMD kept producing those chips. People have gotten samples with later dates on them and they even overclock better than the original ones because the binning has gotten better. Not guaranteed with the 2000 series.

I have mine paired with an Asrock b365m micro atx motherboard. Booted up first try with a gpu installed. No bios update required.https://www.amazon.com/ASRock-B36...65m&sr=8-1
Yup, this is the newest chipset that guarantees drop in support without bios update

Wow, that seems extremely cheap for an i5! Is this a lower end i5 or is it only cheaper due to the lack of integrated graphics? If you're gonna use a GPU anyway then this sounds like a great deal!
i5's are not the lowest end. The i3 9th gens are - and they too are really good. This replaced by i5 6400k, worlds apart and that was a solid chip. And yes it is in part due to the non-integrated graphics.

Is it 4.1ghz out the box or clockable up to 4.1 and probably 3.8 or something out the box

4.1 is the single core boost speed. Base clock is 2.9, all core boost is 3.9.

If your budget has you where you can spend 70 bucks more for the next step up, get the 3600.

But if that 70 upgrades your gpu budget, you will get more frames with the 9400f.

In this budget range you are going to be GPU limited anyways.
