Ryzen 3xxx is where they overcome, not 2xxx

I don't understand how older generation cpu's can cost so much O_O

but 2700x seems like a good choice, or riding it out a couple years

SPECS: No idea how to add my system like everyone else,
Case: o11D XL PSU: EVGA supernova 1300 watt CPU: i9 9900k cooled by a hyper T2 until my waterloop arrives
GPU: 2070 super overclocked @ 1ghz mem, 100mhz core
RAM: 32gb of crappo gskill 3000mhz ram
HDD: crappo 250gb m.2 WD caviar black

From my testing Haswell-E is equal to 3000 and faster by quite a bit in gaming when compared to 2000 series.
Whether it is worth it or not depends on cost though.

in any case it's kinda looking like the 5960x cost as much as a 9900k as it is, but might be way easier to cool lol not sure how high it clocks though, if a 5ghz overclock is easy to obtain on one, I'm thinking it might hold up for quite a while, just my 2 cents tho
Thanks ObiwanShinob1, I am open pretty much to any upgrade. I really wanted to upgrade my motherboard and realized x299 doesn't do much. I am trying to read more hardware news of whats in the pipeline and from what I have read Intel has not kept up or.... they just have a trick up their sleeve they are waiting to dish out. Never expected AMD to actually catch up to Intel.

For gaming and O/C can the xeons do better than the 5930k at 4.4ghz?

I am totally open to a $200 upgrade if it will help 4k gaming.

"doesn't do much" ? Not sure what gave you that idea.

the 79x0, 99x0, and 109x0 chips are much stronger than the best LGA 2011 chip all around.

Honestly though, if you are wanting 4k gaming you'll want to start saving for something modern. x99 had a great run, but it's 6 years old and CPU technology has made some huge leaps since that time.

waiting out next gen cpu's might be a good idea, but 8c 16t is much cheaper from amd than intel if you move platforms 500 bucks is steep for a cpu lol

agree haha

I recently realized that my step brother is still using my old Core 2 Duo rig from 2008 (I helped him upgrade it to a 4 core Xeon in 2014), so I'm thinking to upgrade him for his b-day this year to a Ryzen 3800x. Should be a pretty nuts upgrade from a quad core 3.4ghz xeon and 8gb of 1333mhz DDR3 to a 8 core/16 thread 3.9-4.5ghz Ryzen with 16gb of 3600mhz DDR4.

When I found out he was still chugging along with that old beast, I bought him a new case, PSU, and 1tb SATA SSD in preparation. He doesn't game (obviously with that hunk o junk) but I think throwing in an RTX 2060 KO might help get him to play some games. Right now he has a GTX 550 Ti.
