    I'm going to try and go for a Ryzen 3800x the price is just so good for the cores. I do a lot of compiling and multi-tasking and stuff.
    It's just hard to beat that many cores. If something takes 2 seconds longer to do I just switch to another things I'm working on while I wait.

    I use my pc mostly for web dev (programming, light photoshop, server stuff), so I normally focus on these:

    3800x: The cores for multi-tasking, when you have 10 tabs open, ps, 4 ides, 4 terminals, 2 different server instances and so on... you need all you can get.
    64gp gskill: I need the ram for large files or projects. I've once opened a 15gb json file... just think about that for a second...
    2x nvme: Manjaro, windows (I have these)
    I am trying to get the pci card for more m.2 drives. I want to replace my ssd. I like them and all, but they are somewhat old and why not save the space with something like this? Also they don't need to be big, but focus on speed as I just need them for active projects and I can swap the stuff around with my wd green drives.

    Oh and of course a gpu... mine is a bit old (r9 290x sapphire), but I can still play dota and most AAA if I drop the quality, so I will probably just stick with it for another year or so, and maybe grab something used after that.

            20 years ago we were having the same conversation - AMD has always been the best cost-performance die between the two.

                I am getting deployed in 6 months and plan on doing a "hardcore water cooled build" (as I explained to my dad). I am currently doing research but was looking at a high end threadripper 3970x. I use my computer primarily for gaming so it is still up in the air what cpu to use. My father said might as well since you are water cooling and going balls to the wall hardcore style. I digress (see what I did there) it will most likely change because I wont actually build until after deployment which I wont get back till summer of 2021.

                Let me know if you have any ideas.

                                Going for the Ryzen 3600!

                                Why? Because the fps differences with 9900K at 1440p (especially in games I play) are so minuscule that I could argue that theyre unnoticeable to human eye!!

                                      Upgraded me and my wife's CPUs from 3570Ks to a 3900X (me) and 3600X (her). We're both gamers and she is a digital artist/designer by profession, Ryzen 3000 series just made sense for both of us. I probably don't need the full power of the 3900X, but I got the Crosshair VIII Impact and already have a custom loop with a 1080Ti, so getting anything less would hurt the PC Enthusiast in me.

                                                  Building a DAW machine with the 3960x with 128GB RAM and a host machine with the 3970x with 256GB RAM. I'm a composer so I've got the tough job of needing LOTS of multi-threading on a host machine (housing sounds in Vienna Ensemble Pro) with tons of RAM AND I also need the DAW machine to multi-thread BUT have single-thread performance for things like Reverb, EQ, Compression, etc.

                                                      I used to always be AMD, since I first started "building" PCs in the late 90's. I went to the devil in 2015 since AMD didn't have any compelling offers. But I am a creator, I write software and this cpu has the type of I/O connectivity and core count to facilitate the sort of high demanding work I do. The cpu will replace a number of scattered servers that help me to the same stuff, but now in one unified platform. Assuming I can get a chip, always sold out, only been 2 weeks though I know.

                                                        i'm sticking with my 9900K as it's super stable at 5ghz and i'm happy... plus the fact i've not long upgraded everything (well ok i'm kinda stuck with the Vega 56 atm, but am hoping to rectify that someday when i'm less poor thanks to xmas, car breaking down, kids etc etc) :D

                                                          i was debating between 3950x and 9900ks, but ultimately went with 9900ks because you cant buy 3950 at msrp... and all i do is gaming anyways.

                                                            i remember seeing old pentium II editions of pc mags talking about how $1000 was amazing for a top end cpu. then we hit the mid 2000s and the performance gains on midrange were huge. $200-400 was enough for a decent cpu. now we've come out the other side: even low-end stuff is pretty good and midrange doesn't matter as much so it's back to $1000+ for the good stuff.

                                                                So, how often do you build your machines? Sounds like it is every six months. Basically, you're hot rodding your builds and you don't care if you get a blow out.
                                                                Well, I'm different. I build my machines to last. Every Intel based machine I have built has lasted over five years. I have not had one AMD machine last more than 18 months.
                                                                It's nice that you are showing performance, but until you can show durability, I am not going to waste my money on AMD.

                                                                                          I have both Intel and AMD Gaming PC's. 7700K 4.8Ghz and Ryzen 3600 4.3Ghz. Next CPU won't be until they release the 4000 series Ryzen. Maybe. I'm choosing Ryzen over Intel not because I like AMD more or vice versa, I'm upgrading to the 4000 series because of the vast performance upgrades AMD has been making since Ryzen launched. When Ryzen first launched it was better than FX and matched some I5's and yada yada. Now we got the 3000 series matching/exceeding Intel's top CPU's and falling just a few FPS under Intel in gaming. I see the 4000 series matching or exceeding Intel in gaming/single core performance as well as price. That is why I am sticking with AMD at this point. I like Intel but AMD is making drastic performance increases that Intel is struggling to stay above.

Its the business world as soon as everyone figures that out it will be a better place does that make it right ? NO but such is life. AMD will get greedy just a matter of time wait and see.

It got great single core performance for animation and really great all core performance for rendering. It also have more PCI-E lanes then the 3960x that i do need.
