Though not a bad deal for just a regular desktop computer, this CPU is significantly crippled compared to the Ryzen 5 5600 due to a lot less cache memory. It would be worth it to spend the 20 dollars or so more for a 5600.
Yep agree. Just got 5600 from Newegg few days back at $ 150
Not to forget that it isn't a true 5000 Series anyway since it only has PCI-E 3 support and not even 4. I find that cpu for over 100 bucks more then just overpriced.

5600 for $150 would be better. 5500 for this price is good though. Going from 5500 to 5600 is worth $20. If you're jumping with just 5600 to 5600x that's worth $0. The X variants are not worth any extra money.

This should be $100 because the L3 is cut in half. So it's really a R5 3600 in a newer box. Also, the 4500 is just a rebranded R5 2600. That should be $60 at most.
