I will stick with my trusty AMD 3600 CPU that I purchased last year for $150. This 5600X at $270 is not worth the small increase in speed...

Heck, my 3600 is 9% faster than this 5600X in Fortnite, my favorite game!

5600X at $270=FAIL! BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Oh, regarding NewEgg haters: I have saved over $15,000 over the years from NewEgg just from the rebates alone and they have treated me well on most occasions.

NewEgg haters = ignorance
The issue is the 3600 is about 260 right now. So in comparison, this is a good deal, and cheaper than it has been. But prices are on the decline.

Up until like a week ago, these showed up as 269 on pcpartpicker every time I've looked for seems like months. They raise the price $20 for a week then offer a $20 off code and now it's a hot deal?

If you don't absolutely NEED a new CPU, wait. All the CPUs I've seen since last August are 30+% higher priced than previously seen and the newly release Ryzen 5xxx series is still at a premium price.
The 3600 should be under $200, as a reference point.
The 2600 was under $140 for months.
A 3700X at $260 would be the lowest price for that CPU in a long time. My budget for a CPU is $160 and nothing with 6 cores is near that now.
Prices for most CPUs are starting down again according to camel camel camel.

BTW, lots of people don't game and don't care about GPUs at all, but still need lots of cores and performance.

Joe,

My bad! The entire time I was assuming the AMD 3600 was still the low price of around $150!

My mind was still stuck in 2020 prices [that is when I purchased it].

I apologize to everyone in this post. With this new found knowledge of the 3600 going for nearly the same price of the 5600x, I can clearly see now the 5600x is a much better deal!

Sorry everyone! I never realized prices went that far up since last year! EEK!

Up, up, and away!

Soar
