Hell yeah man. I didn't think to put in a text notice with Best Buy. But I have one in at both Amazon and Newegg, Newegg just stuck first, and I decided I couldn't pass it up.
I am doing 7 Builds total for Christmas. 1 is for me. 1 is for a Client, and 4 are for Family. The one for me is a Server, and it was getting a 2700x, but now that I got a 3950x incoming, I am going to throw my 3900x into my server, making it even more bad ass for all of the processing it will be doing. Its basically going to be a mini Google Stadia, serving up games to every screen in the house. I already have the backend designed and working great with the Test 3900x, but I am only able to do 2 game streams at a time due to the 1 Graphics card per Virtual System limit. Soon I will have a very special card coming in, where I will be able to divide up GPU Resources between multiple VMs, and I can't wait to see how many 1080p 60FPS Game Streams I can stream once I have that. Anyways, the 3900x is going to do that build nicely.
Then that Free's up the 2700x for my client build, I get to sell him mine instead of ordering a new one, so that works for me.
Then I have 3 Sisters, and my mom, all getting bad ass custom water cooled Modest 2700x Builds from me for Christmas. All Parts are still coming in daily. Its going to be quite the tech Christmas here. Will be posting Pics of the builds once finished somewhere in this forum if anyone is interested.
Anyways, I got a bit off track there, but I think the whole point of that was to say, I am just incredibly happy to have finally gotten the 3950x, as I badly wanted one for my Main Rig since Launch, and I was one of the unlucky *******s who stayed up all night on launch day, only to order one with 30 seconds of them launching on Newegg, Get my order through, think I had one coming, and then get an Email for Newegg about 2 hours later saying that they are sorry but due to website and stock issues, they were cancelling my order. Really sucked! So I am just happy that I will finally have it in my hand in less than a few days!
