Great deal for those who have a microcenter nearby.

The next lowest I've seen it was for $280 at Amazon during BF21 (which I purchased).

Awesome CPU for my needs. I'm using it as a Hyper-V 2019 (free) VM server. It's a powerhouse.

Surprisingly low idle power draw on my ASRock B550 m-itx mobo; less than 30W which is great for a 24/7 server.
I think the performance difference is pretty minor, even if the 5600X pulls slightly ahead in most real world scenarios because of single thread performance.

5700G is limited to PCIe 3.0, so if you were to pair it with something like an RX 6500 XT, performance could suffer from that.
$800 is too much, don't pay for fake "advertising" specs:

1. AMD Ryzen 7 5700G $250 microcenter

2. You don't need expensive Mb for last gen 8-core Ryzen, it's not crazy 64-core Threadripper or Epyc, 5700G eat little bit power. Other story with Intel room heater. Smilie
B550 chipset just B450 with unlocked PCIe 4.0 (no real difference vs PCIe 3.0 in home PC)
$60 ASRock B450M Pro4, bundle with CPU in Microcenter (DDR4 3200 - very little difference in work, your wife not a Pro gamer where few fps is important). Just same mainstream level Mb as MSI TOMAHAWK.
(If you want pay for PCIe4/faster RAM - cost twice, minimum $123 for mainstream level B550 AORUS ELITE)
You even can buy any compatible AM4 Mb but I don't like entry-level junk.
Go deep in Ryzen Mb: https://docs.google.com/spreadshe...KCjaXyzd1o

3. power supply - the same, "green" Ryzen, no videocard - no need 850W.
$40 EVGA 600 BQ 80 Plus Bronze Semi Modular 600W $40 https://www.newegg.com/evga-600-b...6817438100

4.$90 32GB 3200 https://www.newegg.com/neo-forza-...0097-00020
($105 32GB 4000 https://www.newegg.com/neo-forza-...0097-00035)

5. SSD - my favorite story Smilie
- PCIe 4.0 no real difference vs PCIe 3.0 in home PC, you just cannot get more, no way.
(If it's not special crazy expensive PCIe 4.0 hardware for server/workstation)
- thousands of MB/s - yeah, "sure", in couple sec of real work small fast SLC cache will ended, then you will get real TLC speed (400-600 reading and who knows how much for writing, depend from memory chips and controller).
- Samsung 980 PRO "3-bit MLC". Nope. 3-bit == TLC, same as 980 EVO Plus $120 or usual "980" $115, all 3 models - ABSOLUTELY THE SAME: same speed, limit, warranty, memory chips, just diff.label and price. Koreans also love your money, they are smart guys.
I recommend other Korean guys, LOL Big Grin Yeah, RAM chips make today mostly in Korea.
SK hynix Gold P31 1TB because of 1,200 TBW warranty, all Samsungs /2 - only 600 TBW !!!
$110 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08DKB5LWY

$550 is more slick deal than $800, if need case - add $50, a lot of them on Newegg (only couple $50 in Amazon - Zalman T8, Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L)
$20 with coupon compact Mechanical Keyboard (Gateron Optical Brown Switch) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B094VXP3PN
$16 DREVO Owl Wireless Mouse (sensor PixArt PMW3325) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B096VB8Z45

And you still have money for romantic dinner in nice restaurants and even for some gifts like small gold ring and flowers. Wink

Definitely an interesting cross-shop. 5700G has far better memory OC capabilities, 8 cores and a very capable I-GPU. The 5600X has better per core performance and PCIe 4.0 which has some but limited reasons to have. You should be able to readily decide depending what your needs are.

if you don't need integrated graphics the 5600X will perform better for gaming. This has more cores for multi-core tasks that aren't generally utilized fully in gaming.

G variant doesn't have the PCIe 4.0

Lol googled it and a Reddit thread said the same thing. I admit I don't know much about that but it sounds like you've referring to the new gimmick AMD cooked up. Some of them do work! I'm not a hater. This new one I'm skeptical of though

I've always been team green and red so am set on the GPU front I think. If I wasn't set I'm sure I could have snagged a 3050 yesterday for MSRP thanks to this vendor

Durn you guys making me learn stuff on a Friday. Ok I'm still rocking b450 boards so it's not a concern for me it seems

But I don't. I truly don't. I can't believe this tie. $250 for this or $260 for 5600X. I do some video editing occasionally and work but mostly it's a VR rig. Halp

if you're wanting a new board, can find them for cheap because off all the bundle sales from Newegg and others to get GPUs. So the market is flooded with cheap new and used boards

Yeah I just was gonna say snagged the ASUS fancy one off here last night for $120 and it's 189.99 at Microcenter making their once glorious bundle price a joke with the way things are

Pair the two and $370 for a powerhouse for years to come it looks like isn't too bad. I feel like I'm racing against inflation to find the sweet spot

Woah it dropped again $240 for 5600X at Microcenter!

That card is hot garbage with 4x pcie lanes. 16x 3.0 will not noticeably bottleneck any normal current card, including a 3090.

The gist of it is that AMD made the Navi 24 die for laptops with certain limitations, and then put that on desktop. 6500 XT can only use four PCIe lanes, which is pretty bad in the first place. But the bandwidth gets cut in half if you use PCIe 3.0 instead of PCIe 4.0. So when you have a 5700G or some non-4.0 motherboard, you are setting up the worst case scenario for the 6500 XT. The inclusion of only 4 GB of VRAM instead of 6-8 GB means it will run into bandwidth problems more often.

https://www.techpowerup.com/revie...s-scaling/
https://www.techspot.com/review/2...n-6500-xt/

Despite all that, and the lack of AV1 decode and H.264/H.265 encode and being slower than the 5500 XT in many cases, it might be the right choice for some people, especially if they can get it at the $200 MSRP and run it using PCIe 4.0.

I have a 5700G. It's extremely efficient right out of the box so that's nice. If you don't care about the iGPU, maybe you should go for the 5600X.

These Microcenter deals are very YMMV. There are not very many MC stores, and when I finally was on vacation near a store, they were sold out of almost everything when I got there.

But if you can find one, great price! I paid $290 for my 5700g.
