These are coming down in price nicely. I bought a i7-10700 in Dec for $280 and am very happy with it but would have gone for the i9-10850K for $60 more.

Quote from Hxx :
there is some obsession about PCIE gen 4 which is a fair point for AMD just not as relevant as some make it out to be
yes i checked on that, the NVME will be faster, but for the price, i think intel chip is a better choice. we should thanks AMD tho

fark it. Was holding out for a 5900X, but the 10850K is too good of a value to pass up. God damnit, you got me again team blue.

My son wanted the 11th gen but at this price its a no brainer. Got the i9-10850K and ASUS TUF z590 wifi for $260 on Amazon and Sabrent Rocket M.2 2TB for $294. He already has a RTX 3070 so this is will be a good upgrade from his i5-9600

Quote from GreenPanther4395 :
Not really. If you want to keep it for 7 years, get the 5900x. It is superior and the $200 price difference is nothing when you're talking about 7 years. You'll make up a good deal of that just in energy savings. The Intel makes sense if you're talking about spending less now so you can upgrade in 3-4 years instead of 6-7...
Asinine!!! Yes, upgrading every 3 yrs is just that >> asinine... This isn't the 90's where generational leaps in CPU architecture literally made the previous CPU's almost obsolete in a span of 12 months. Those were some fun days. And yes, back then I did upgrade just about every 18 months. Nowadays this isn't necessary at all.... Hell, an I7 from 5 years ago will run an average user's (95% of PC buying public) just fine. The other 5% are gamers, content creators or simply PC DIY's that want (or need) the latest and greatest. Other than that it's a waste of money... And BTW, you can't find 5900X at it's MSRP of $550 AT ALL now... You'll have to shell out $700 or more... This right there makes 10850 or even the 10900k a MUCH better buy....

However, Amazon has price-matched

It must have been a short-lived price match - $409 now, but the same with the B&H price. The 10900 is still at the lower price on Amazon but not on B&H.

Not that crazy to upgrade in 3 years. Spend less, upgrade more. More than 5% are gamers/content creators etc. The raw CPU performance isn't always necessary per se (although it often is nice to have), but motherboard/storage/gpu/PCI/RAM advancements, move much faster and require a new CPU. Nature of the tech market.

Also I had no issue getting a 5900x at retail. Get yourself an app to monitor stock if that's something you want. This Intel is a fine buy if you upgrade often, but if you keep your PC for a long while - spending up on your CPU makes much more sense - especially when you're talking about ~$100 in power savings over the life of the more expensive option.

Not discounting your experience, but my 280 AIO (Arctic) cools my 10700k @1.3V. Keeps it in the low 70's during P95. But, I have a cool case too. I know its not the 10 core, but something to think about.
Whats your AVX offset?

Quote from lightspeeds :
I'm loving it. My PC boots up in 3-4 seconds. I haven't had a single hiccup. I have not tried overclocking the CPU, but I really have no need to. My build is equipped to be overclocked to over 4.5 ghz if I wanted to. I have not tried video processing or graphic design on it yet, but I did do some rom file conversions (about 15 gigs worth), which went faster than I expected.

As for the Asus motherboard itself, the bios menu was new to me, so there was a slight learning curve, but nothing you can't Google search and figure out. The motherboard has a lot of options, 1 NVME slot for a wifi card, 2 NVME SSD slots, has RGB lights on the board (I didn't know it did when I got it), fan control, plenty of SATA ports, USB, USB-C, etc. Overall, this motherboard has more options than I will ever use.
Glad to hear you are liking your setup. I also seriously doubt I'll need to OC. I'll be using the larger thermalright macho rev. B cooler I had on my 6600k. Hopefully it will be up to the task.

If you're new to a UEFI BIOS it can be a bit overwhelming. You almost need a college degree to know what every setting does lol. I still don't know which NVME slot is best to mount a single drive. The slots seem to be different and they disable one or more sata ports according to the vague manual.
