Unless you really need those extra cores, you would be better off with the ryzen 3900x that you can find for $390 in store at microcenter right now (check the latest deal) , and use that extra $300 to buy a better graphic card (especially if you're into gaming)

The 3900x just got reduced by $100 off MSRP too.

But for those with a couple 2080 ti already, the cpu is what I got left to splurge on.

And the price reduction is due to announcement of several refreshes. 3900XT is coming.

I have a i-7 6700k - not in a rush to upgrade until the new graphic cards come out (Nvidia 3000...) but thoughts on going with Comet Lake or waiting until AMDs new 4000 processors come out later this year?

Probably a tomahawk max b450. You should be careful about not overclocking these chips on a b450 board and definitely put some air cooling on the VRM's

no you can google
msrp is 189, i cant control what people sell them for. bandh is backordered for 219.

but he asked for the best, thats it. 2nd place is b450 tomahawk max if you can find it not priced gouged like on newegg, a $120 mb for 299 right now

this is not a great time to be looking. i would wait for b550 to launch and see if prices settle

Bestbuy has Asus Tuf Gaming x570 Plus on sale for $189. Bought one yesterday. With the x570 will also give you access to the PCIE 4. According to the reviews it's a solid board and if the new Zen 3 blows zen2 out of the water it'll support an upgrade

are these things, sale or not, really worth every dollar you spend? or are they really just overpriced? I never understood $1000+ graphic cards, especially these processors at these prices. #flameON

The best bang is probably a 3600 imo, but people looking at a 3950 may have multi-threading applications in mind, or are epeen comparing, an in both cases the 3500 isn't a good option. If you're gaming, however, it is hard to beat.
