I agree. OP, i would go with DeathAngle's list and see if you can squeeze a 3600 instead.

By Built-in Benchmark Queen:
My 2.5 years old delidded 7980xe @ 4600mhz all core with 49ns memorylatency (4000c16 twekaed) is faster than 3950x max overclocked on water in every scenario. Pretty good for a ancient cpu
In gaming it has no chance vs my new 10900k @ 5400mhz and 4600c16 tweaked memory. ~35ns memorylatency.

I just had to make the decision, and I went with 2600. My stepson is about to get surprised with enough components for his first gaming PC build, he's a pretty serious xbox gamer. I didn't want to surprise him with a built PC, so I'm collecting parts and we will build it together so he can learn it inside and out.

So far I've picked up an Asus ROG Strix X470-F and AMD 2600 for him. He got lucky with the motherboard, I bought it for myself open box, and a bracket was missing when I started building my PC. Not wanting to wait, I went and bought what my local Best Buy had, an Asus Crosshair VII Hero, so I went ahead and built and tested the strix and 2600 in my system to make sure his board was good.

What he thinks is my old boxes stacked on the shelf is actually soon to be his introduction to building PC's.

If everyone else in the world is always wrong, maybe the problem lies with you and not everyone else.
