In Amazon UK you can get the R5 1600 and the Tomahawk for a total of 185 quids. It comes with a capable cooler. I had a 5820K and my R5 1600 is a bit stronger - imo.

Come Ryzen 3000, sell the the R5 and get a newer model.

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.
