X570 with a 3900x is looking pretty compelling at this point when from looking at benchmarks the i9 10900k is only on average 5% better framerates than the 3900x at 1440p and you don't have to deal with the heat and non PCIe 4.0 compatability on Intel 10th gen.

I wonder how Zen3 vs Intel 11th gen rumors are going.. You'd think that with 7nm node AMD will be ahead next gen even in gaming?
If you are thinking of going Zen 2 and eventually Zen 3, then do not overspend on the cpu. Even the R7 3700X will handle your gpu. Heck even an R5 3600 will work. You do need to splurge on the motherboard a bit in preparation for Ryzen 4000. Motherboard in the 300$ range for me is a luxury. lol

I play 4K and 1440 with my R5 3600 and RX 5700.

I definitely second this. Or even R7 2700, then jump on the 4900/4950 once released. Definite upgrade paths... and it wouldn't surprise me if AMD surprise us with another year of AM4 support into 5000 series.

As i mentioned earlier in this thread, Asus is keeping quiet because they dont have the PCIe 4.0 switches etc. on their boards except for the Extreme https://www.cool3c.com/article/153618

The boards are still very expensive though because some people pay whatever for Asus boards.

People might be disappointed buying a Hero or Formula when they find out they cant get PCIe 4.0 NVMe speeds later on. Something that the much cheaper Gigabyte boards offer.

After reading more reviews I'm leaning more towards AMD I'm kind of on the fence. I think Zen 3 is going to hit it out of the park. I'm thinking I could get the 3900x now(its a steal at $410) then sell it once Zen 3 releases.

Any recommendations on a motherboard around $400 for it? I've been eyeing the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master and Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero.

Does the current ram in the list work for x570?

Since I'm new to AMD any good overclocking guides that more in the realm of set and forget to get the most out of the cpu?

Edit: Looks like there might be a refresh of the 3900x before Zen 3 launches. Might as well wait a bit.
