$30 above MRSP but considering how hard it is to find in stock anywhere near MSRP, it maybe worth it.

You can also bring it below MSRP (depending on where you live) by saving tax using payboo card.

EDIT: Hearing Amazon has these in stock at MSRP. If you don't have payboo or your state does not charge much tax, Amazon may be the way to go.

Anything worth pairing with this is not available at a reasonable price TBH. The things that are available would likely be huge bottlenecks to this processor. I'm still using my old gtx 1080 waiting on prices to drop on something better.

Looks like everyone must've got a shipment in recentrly. BH might still be good option depending on which state you live in and if you have payboo card.

Literally nothing unless you live near a microcenter and plan to wait in line. The alternatives are to pay scalped prices, wait, or buy a product with an IGP and get some video. Might as well wait for zen3d or Alder Lake in 4 months since its impossible to buy a GPU right now

who is in the market for a processor like this that doesn't already have a video card to use until something better becomes available?

It's unlikely that AMD will actually release an AM4 / DDR4 sku with 3D stacked cache, especially with supply constraints at the moment. Also this is still going to be super expensive and likely apply to HEDT first.

If you need all the cores of this, it's likely that the desktop video card doesn't matter all that much and your work is CPU bound. I have a 1070 and been unable to buy any GPU. However, all my rendering and encoding jobs have sped up tremendously from my previous Intel 6 core system. Don't get this if you are just gaming... there is no point, if you are a streamer you aren't going to make up the price difference between this and a 5900x with faster encoding.
