Price just keeps dropping on this and is perhaps the lowest so far.
Also available at Shallothead eBay for $739.50.
Select Afterpay as payment method and use the code for discount to apply. Enjoy!
Original Coupon Deal
Based on history, this should end up with over 100+..
… now to just resist pulling the trigger!
I think the "upcoming" models with the extra stacked L3 cache probably won't be available for purchase for another 6+ months…
And not for this price for a while after that
I paid $809 for my 5800x.
I paid $560 for mine
I should've waited, I also sold my 5700xt for around $600 at that time.
I sold my Vega 56 around that time for the same price I bought it 2-3 years ago… gotta love a free gpu
I sold my 5700xt for $1200 a few months ago, rip. I then brought a 3080 so I lost in the end…
I paid $560 for mine
I paid $899 for 5900x and $220 for the Mobo. If I would have waited for today, I could have saved $100 on Mobo and $160 on CPU. Also I would have lost the experience I had for the last 3 months on my work.
Same, I feel you bro
how, they were like $600 near launch
Do these guys have a physical store also?
Got one…finally! Bought on 28 degrees for price protection as it just keeps falling. Got a whole year for the arse to drop out of the price - I think - could be 6mths…whatever.
Does the price protection work on ebay sales ?
Only against the original purchase price from my understanding. If you submit a claim using an ebay sale price as the lower price they won't pay the diff.
do ebay gift card vouchers still work with this?
I don't want to use afterpay
From what I've read in another thread, you have to use AP for some portion of the purchase, but you can use gift cards to make that portion small (eg you pay $730 in giftcards and $8 on Afterpay).
At the end of the day, they just want you to have signed up to Afterpay, they don't really care how much you put through them on this particular transaction
Thanks, if there's no way around it, I"m going to have to sign up. been looking for a reasonably priced 5900x for a long time!
You can use Afterpay as a guest without having to join up and provide details, and you can pay for the entire purchase using gift cards as an Afterpay guest and still use the discount code. Unless it's changed in the last month or so, I've done it several times and it works with discount codes and without providing any payment or other details to Afterpay. Any left over gift card credit remains available to use for another ebay purchase later. There is a limit on the combined number of gift cards + discount codes you can use, I think it's 6 or might be 8, can't remember exactly. This is important for expensive items because the gift cards I used had a maximum value of $200. Another advantage of using gift cards is you can often purchase them at a discount for bigger savings.
Also 5950x 'only' $1067 (shallothead eBay) if anyone's interested.
Trying to work out if it's worth the premium to go for that one.
Is it the extra 0.1Ghz @ $3280/Ghz or the 4 more cores @ $82/core you need?
I know, it makes those cores look cheap…but they're not, esp if you can't/don't use them.
More so the cores. Hard to pass up the deal on the 5900x here.
Shallothead mentioned as an option by the OP - be very cautious of shallothead eBay deals and also Shopping Express & Futu which all appear to be the same company with the same address/contact phone number etc.
I bought an expensive new monitor (Dell U2720Q) from shallothead which was a 20% off voucher deal and was a pretty good price with the 20% discount factored in. The item was advertised as "brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging" however the item was not new and was in fact refurbished and sold to me as a "new" item. The sale was actually fulfilled by Futu Online - the delivery slip / tax invoice was Futu letterhead - when I chatted with eBay they checked and advised me that shallothead was in fact another account linked to Futu and that they were one and the same. The box the "new" monitor arrived in had been previously opened and the item was poorly repacked. There was an old delivery slip still attached to the box partly covered by the new delivery slip addressed to me, I could see the tracking number on the old delivery slip and entered it into a few package tracking websites, which revealed that a week or so before I placed my order the item had travelled from Minchinbury to Alexandria. Dell has a service centre in Minchinbury, and Futu has a warehouse/dispatch centre in Alexandria. I then entered the service tag printed on the monitor and on the packaging into the Dell service website and discovered that the warranty on this item was commenced a couple of months before I placed my order. I rang Dell to investigate and the item came up as refurbished.
I had this exact same thing happen a couple of months earlier when I bought the same model monitor from Futu, so these Futu crooks stung me twice. Why did I not buy direct from Dell you might ask? Reason was I needed a reasonably priced colour accurate monitor and the U2720Q was my choice, but had been out of stock for a while at Dell Australia who advised it would be at least 6 months until they had more stock, & Dell advised me to shop around as some resellers still had new ones in stock and so I bought the "new" items from the different eBay stores a couple of months apart on 20% off sales, which were good deals if the items were new as they were advertised to be. Be wary of Futu/shallothead as in my experience they brazenly advertise and sell items as "brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging" when they are refurbished items. Both times I got a full refund but Futu wasn't very co-operative with the refund process so both times I had to involve eBay for help with returns/refunds - eBay were really great in helping out with this. The whole process however was slow and time consuming, and nobody likes being ripped off, especially twice a couple of months apart by the same seller using different names. I left an eBay review for both sellers summarising the rip-off to warn other people, the Futu review is still up however the shallothead review I left disappeared from eBay within a few days. Futu-Shallothead-Shopping Express may all be the same company, it seems they use identical contact phone number and address.
Thanks for sharing. I've written essays that were less detailed lol
Give us the detail.
Thanks for this cautionary tale. This must be a rare thing or their feedback score would be shite. It's no consolation though if you're that rare case.
I don't think it is too difficult to get eBay to remove bad feedback to be honest. I have had good experiences with these companies but I am not exactly surprised to hear the above.
I've had a similar experience with Shopping Express - I bought a "new" hard drive which was full of the previous owner's Russian movies.
Not everyone’s second hand stories end up a success
Ozbargain Guinness Record for the longest post. Lol
I wonder if the price will go any lower. There is still a 20% coupon possibility popping up.
Having said that, keeping the cpu for 6 months, then the 3dvcache ones come out with 15% improved performance, will make its resale value tank
Ye I was in the same boat, but got it anyway as im way overdue for an upgrade and didnt want to miss this offer.
The thing is that the 5900x is far superior compared to 3900x, but the 3900x prices are still $699, so dont think there will be a large drop in prices
Yeah for sure it will go lower, but buying at below retail is fine by me. Been holding off for 6months
6 months after your 6 months Ryzen 6 will release… there is always another 6 months that you can wait. You do not always have to have the latest, no games can max this out probably so unless you are using this for actual production workload the new CPU will not give you any major quality of live improvements.
When my PC is setting at 100% CPU for anything but shortest durations I start getting annoyed, 5900x will stop me frowning at taskmanager, even if it is at 100% I"ll know it's doing everything much faster
with tech, if you want, you buy today otherwise, don't buy at all
how many cpus does one need pls
1 for low power usage, 1 for gaming, 1 for productivity, at least! lol
Can anyone recommend a B550 micro atx mobo for a 5900x, one that will work out the box without bios update. Thanks
Every PC component is dropping in price except graphics cards… so buying all components and waiting for the price of graphics cards to drop, which maybe another 1 month or 1 year or 10 years? Sigh.
By the time gpu prices drop the rest of your components you already bought will also have dropped - maybe in total by more than how much the one gpu is gonna drop.
Point is, if you need a gpu now just suck it up and buy one
Yeah nah, would rather hang on to my current PC rather than buying and building a new rig now.
I bought the last deal from HarrisTech ebay. 😞
Can I return 😅 and buy this?
I think so… I've started an return and see how they reply. Technically you can change your mind, pay for the postage and return the item.
How come Ebay does not have a cancel option for something paid but not posted?
Stacked with the current increased Afterpay referral bonus of $30. A 5900X for the retail price of a 5800X is not bad!
