Id like to get my build done, the only part I need is a processor. I’d ideally like a 5900x but as I’m sure everyone knows, that won’t be possible any time soon.

is this a good substitute for the 5900x or should I wait until I can get my hands on one?

Edit:

Ive got this board and RAM:

MSI MAG B550 TOMAHAWK (AMD AM4) B550 ATX MOTHERBOARD

PATRIOT VIPER STEEL 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 PC4-28800C18 3600MHZ DUAL CHANNEL KIT (PVS432G360C8K)

Not really, no! For starters, you'd have to buy a new board and RAM if you already have the Am4 kit as Intel won't slot in.

Ah balls, I’m so impatient lol. Guess I’ll have to wait till I can order/pre-order a 5900x then. Thanks

I’ve got these in my basket:
