Microcenter is always in store only.
Only on special item sales, some things they will sell online, if they keep it in their warehouse.

Yeah, otherwise they can't give you the hard sell on the service plan. I always feel bad when I decline it. The poor kids trying to sell it act like I just killed their dog when I pass on it.
Don't feel.bad, they be scalping too

This chip only has value if you're going to go integrated only if you ever have plans to have a GPU do not buy this get an 8-core chip dedicated
How does that work? Not buying the integrated if you plan to buy discrete later— where does the video come from in the meantime?

They just mean don't buy this apu which has integrated graphics, if you plan to use a discrete card down the road but I disagree. There's no drawback to using this with a discrete gpu and you're not paying more for the integrated graphics it has.

The problem is that you are getting a compromised CPU when you go the APU route. For example, if you go with the "top of the line" 5700G, you get a total L3 Cache
of 16MB vs 32MB if you go the 5800x route + higher max boost clock.

The same applies with the 5600G vs 5600X. That's why the other poster mentioned that its best to stick to the others if you plan to pair with a discrete GPU.

If you plan to pair it with a GPU that you can and are getting now, then sure. That's a relevant thing to point out. If you can't and aren't getting a GPU now, then it's pointless to bring it up at all because you need video out.

I haven't been impressed by BF/CM for many years now. It always seem to be gimmick sales on no name products just to get you in the door/click on their website.
Yep. This year will probably be one of the worst if not worst BF/CM of all time because of the supply chain shortages. There will hardly be any incentives for discounts. If you need something that you see a sale between now and then, I would pull the trigger.

Quote from thawdpenguin :
If I'm still on a 1700x should I upgrade to this for productivity? VMs, programming etc.

Or should I stick to a 5800/5900? I don't game anymore and was thinking this APU could let me offload my gpu.
I am also on a 1700X and decided to pull the trigger on this when I got an open box for $175, and a BX550 motherboard for $71 open box and with a $20 discount for buying them both together it was a good deal at MC. This only has 16 MB of L3 cache, but I think that only affects a handful of games that rely heavily on the L3 cache such as Valorant. But in most workloads it's usually within roughly 10% or so of the 5600X, and IMHO it should be quite a significant upgrade from the 1700X. Good luck!

Simple. If you got a gpu, 5600x. If not, 5600g.

5600x is $300 so it is $70 more. It is also a better CPU because of more cache and higher freq. You can YouTube videos to see the specifics.
