Microcenter Web Store has the AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT 3.9Ghz 8-core CPU [microcenter.com] for $330 + $6 standard shipping.

This is the new XT variant, without a cpu cooler. Yes it's microcenter, and you can ship it, but if you do that, there are no mobos to bundle and ship for a $20 discount. These normally retail at $399.

These things, you need to buy a GPU?
Yes. Currently, all Ryzen 7 and 9 CPUs require a discrete GPU. Only the Ryzen 3 and 5 with a "G" designation are APUs. This will change with the 4000 series CPUs [wikipedia.org], it appears.

For another $70, a person can get 4 more cores and an added 32MB of cache (64 total).

3800x is a waste. Go 3900x or go home.

Get the 3900X instead. $70 for 50% more cores (+4), when going from 3600 to 3700/3800 is like $130-180 more for just 2 more cores. 3900X is the best value out there for a pretty high end CPU. If $400 is too much I would get the 3700X instead for $260.
This:
3900X=32854 passmark
3800X=23319 passmark

Approximately 40% performance gain between chips with only a price difference of 30%.

On the flip size of that...

3600=17831 passmark

Which is 23% less performance but they have been sold for around $160 that is a 51% cost savings...

2600x at $80 was also a killer deal a while back,

This is a good deal but only becuase of the price other wise IMO the X/XT version is never worth the added cost.Sure you get a better bin and slighltly higher sustainted for XT vs X but neither X version is a huge boost from standard unless you get that rare unicirn that clocks higher.

Benchmarks don't generally reflect real world usage so don't count on 40%.

If you're gaming and really care about FPS Intel is still king but you usually pay extra for that.

Yeah becuase clearly more cores always mean better if you're gaming only those cores go to waste.

More cores is a usage case.So I hope you're being sarcastict and not serious and telling people to waste money on cores they may not need.If you're serious do us all a favor and stay off the internet.

Your an idiot who doesn't understand benchmarks and how they're composite scores of real work applications and usage. Yes some games have better single thread performance or have been optimized for Intel. If your world revolves around a game, only consult people that benchmark that game when you're making purchasing decisions.

The rest of us don't make CPU buying decisions on single game performance.

The new Xbox Series X will come with 8 cores. 4 cores is antiquated and 6 cores is temporary minumum (on the way to 8). Games are being optimized for 8 cores as we type. Plus a lot of people like to stream etc while they play so you always want more cores within reason. I don't care if people dont want a 3900x - a 3700x is fine. The 3800x is just a waste imo because it wont give you much more than a 3700x. The price difference vs the 3900x is small compared to the extras. No doubt the 3900x will be getting cheaper too in a few months

You're selling Ryzen short! You forgot to mention:
  • Beats Intel in virtually every metric and benchmark apart from a few extra FPS in some games under some circumstances.
  • Smokes Intel in multi-threading.
  • For those who keep a computer more than a few years, B550/X570 future proofs for PCI 4.0 SSDs and GPUs. Next-gen consoles being PCI 4.0, game file systems are in the midst of being optimized for ultra fast SSDs.
  • Way less security vulnerabilities than Intel.
  • Today's boards will support the Ryzen 4000 later this year which will likely rip the slight gaming edge from Intel completely.
  • Runs way lower wattage in addition to being easier to cool.
  • You get to experience the joy of rewarding a company that actually brought true innovation to a stagnant market exploited for years by Intel.

Those are just the reasons off the top of my head.
I like how you say "except for a few". Can you change it to, 'Intel beats it in FPS".

Absolutely not. That would be misleading.

I'm running Ryzen1700 + 1080ti with a 5120 x 1440 monitor. I thought about upgrading my CPU. But after some research I realize at 1440p, gaming performance is mostly bottlenecked by GPU. There will be very little improvement in terms of fps. If I decide to play at 1080p, there will be a big improvement, but why would I care if the fps is 100 or 150? Because at fps that high, I can't tell the difference. So I decided to stick with 1700 and upgrade my gpu when RTX 3080 is available. Hope this is helpful to gamers who are thinking about upgrading.
I am running 1800x plus gtx1080 games in 1080... I was thinking that my gpu was the bottleneck watching come YouTube videos for the same gpu but different cpu.. they all have better fps than I do. Which research did you do?
