Depending on your use case, the Ryzen 5800x may not be necessary. Games will run perfectly well on a 5600x. I bought my 5800x just for peace of mind as this is the last generation of the AM4 chip. Depending the price difference between a 5600x and 5800x, a 5800x may be justifiable if it's $50 between the two. Make sure you have a cooler as this doesn't have one. Would recommend for sure!

Upgraded Ryzen 2700 to 5800X

This was a planned upgrade from 2nd gen to 5th gen. BHPhoto was running an incentivized [cc application] promotion (they additional offered to pay sales taxes) plus an on sale price. I paid over $60 less than at Amz or Negg prices. Good deal. Thanks BHPhoto! (Plus my old 2700 is selling for $70 more used on eBay than I paid for it new two years ago: hard to go wrong.) The Ryzen 5800X is both a measurable and user noticeable speed bump over the older gen 2 2700. (It comes at a cost of 40W more power, but I have an 800W PS, so no issues there.) This is the final upgrade to my AM4-tech build of 2020, and should do me for a few more years.

But it's less $$ and much newer than the 2700X I had prior. X3D and the 5900 were considerably more when I got this. The retail box DOESNT HAVE A COOLER? C'mon AMD, at least include a coupon for a decent all in one kit.
