    Why? Simply comparing performance vs price, it looks pretty good. How do you get more performance for under £300?

    Cancelled my order for a 5800x that was coming next week, I just don’t really need it.

    My 3080 isn’t being held back by my 2700x so seems pointless to get a new motherboard and cpu for £600 when the improvements will be minimal in games at 1440. I’ll wait till amd released the non x versions and make my mine up then.

    Had to do it? Fair enough. Hopefully the guy with a gun to your head goes away.

    Had this is basket ready to check-out

    Heart says get it, head says stop being stupid you don't need it for gaming!

    Think i'll sit tight for my 5900X pre-order(s) to arrive. I have two on order from different places and a Ryzen 5 3600 at the moment.

    I've had the same thought multiple times but sensible head says stick with 5900x!

    Exactly. I think my only use for it would be benchmarking to make use of the extra cores.
    Can probably say the same at the moment about going above 6 cores!

    I'm wondering how much difference the 5900X will make over the 5600X in the next 5-6 years of gaming...

    Yeah, I did contemplate getting 5600x but reckon 5900x will do nicely for streaming whilst gaming and looks like it'll run cooler than 5800x. 1st time dipping my toes into AMD waters (like many others if expect) so quite excited to have a play with it!

    I have a 2700k with a 3080 on a 3840 x 1440p monitor. I've been waiting for my new PC to play Doom Eternal, do you think I should just play it anyway, have you tried it? Doom(2016) is smooth as butter on everything maxed but I think that is a particluarly GPU reliant game, Pubg isn't very clever - even on low settings.

    Just realised you have an AMD 2700x and I have a Intel 2700k - nvm. :)

    Doom eternal ran at about 200fps on a 4790k with 2080ti, maxed at 3440x1440.
    You certainly wont need a new CPU to plsy it unless your looking to get 800fps or something in 720p :D

    Hope you guys waiting on Zen 3 stock aren't waiting too long. I managed to get a 5600x and MSI X570 Tomahawk last Wednesday for £426 but now I'm waiting on RAM. I could get a 4x8gb kit but really I want the 2x16gb 8pack Team RAM kit which is out of stock until 27th Nov

    Fingers crossed, all retailers seem to be positive that they'll get a decent supply in this week.
