Didn't see this posted yet at this price - lowest I've seen outside of Microcenter deals. Hope it's of value to some. Just picked one up myself. Happy Black Friday All!

AMD realized how expensive the upgrade was to the new gen and went crazy.

ddr4 is not as fast as ddr5 through. Basically you spend less to get less performance.

If you have everything AM4, you can probably survive this whole generation with a 5950X though. Obviously if buying from scratch it's different.

I'm going to wait. I have a [email protected] w/2080Ti. I figured I waited this long I might as well wait a little longer.

Yeah, if you already have AM4 it''d be better to just upgrade your CPU unless you are extremely performance focused.

Quote from readma :
ddr4 is not as fast as ddr5 through. Basically you spend less to get less performance.

At this point it depends on the DDR5 and DDR4 kit your comparing. Most DDR5 kits will not outperform top end DDR4 kits. I am sure overtime this will change but today this is the case. CAS 16 RAM tends to have lower latency but the throughput on DDR 3200 is lower than most of the current DDR5 kits. For most applications you will never notice the difference.

For my recent build I went with DDR4 and a 12600k overclocked to 5.2ghz all cores. At the time, 64gigs of good DDR4 was less than 32gigs of DDR5. The cost was not even close.

I do agree if your looking at the 7900x ddr5 is the way to go. For most uses the lower end parts are fine. I like the 12600k with z690 board from microcenter for 300$. It is hard to go wrong. It is NOT as fast as the 13600k but for 50$ less compared to the CPU alone it makes alot of sense. Your basically looking at a mobo+cpu for 200-300$ less than the 13600k. The money can be spent on other upgrades.
