Pretty solid deal for a fast AMD 8 Core processor. Make sure your motherboard supports this model.

The 5600 is cheaper and better.

This is 5700G probably a better deal at $179. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

Anyone know of a reasonably priced mini-ITX or Micro-ATX motherboard for this thing with 2.5 gb ethernet for this thing?

It's intriguing of you are just into productivity loads and has better box cooling.

It's hard to push this over the 5600 or 5700g unless you have a specific application.

well, 5700G doesn't support PCIe 4.0 and the L3 Cache is only 16mb compared to those 32 that 3800x has

I want a low powered system with decent cpu and enough cores to run Proxmox to run couple of VMs at the same time. Looks like for the price , power draw and also built in video - yeah, the 5700G might be what I need. Although I'm leaning more towards the 5600G. Since its half the cost almost and has built in video. It's going to run headless. So I just need built in video out for troubleshooting and saving the PCIe slot on a mini-itx for HBA card.

I just need to find a decent mini-ITX motherboard for this that has a Intel NIC.

Got a 5600x from Best Buy at the same price and it has substantially better perf on single thread and substantial lower power consumption. That 3800x will beat it from slightly to substantially if all cores are used (depending on the efficiency of the full use of cores). The 5600x appears to still be at $159 at Best Buy, probably a better deal for some users.

Single digit performance increase of a 5700 or 5600x over this. It's not a bad CPU at all if the price is right
