    Prices just keep dropping for CPU and motherboards. Paid about $50 more for 5600x and B550 Tomahawk in last week 10% sale. Haven't built them yet, so will probably return and get this deal. Hooray for eBay Plus free return.

      Curious if any catches with these plus returns as I made a mistake and would like to return something , but not sure how it affects coupons with multiple items on order. In this case the 2nd item bumped me into a larger $100 off discount .

        I've only returned single items through Ebay Plus that were paid with gift cards and they refunded the exact amount paid back into the gift card. In your case with the multiple items, i think it should be the same unless you used Afterpay which i'm sure how eBay handles those.

        I've never heard of a return invalidating a previous minimum spend voucher

        Thanks for that guys. I guess I'll try it.

      the Gigabyte X570 seems like a better deal with the 5600x? Any thoughts anyone - would you get the Gigabyte X570 over the Tomahawk if you were to return?

      It might be worth waiting for Amazon Prime day 21 and 22 June next week.

    Which 5600x and motherboard combos would be the best value for WIFI and Bluetooth?

    • +2 votes

      Maybe something that has wifi 6 (I think the cheapest MSI one does not) and then see if the other specs suit your needs e.g. overclocking etc

    looks like a great deal for 5600X+B550 TOMAHAWK, not sure if historical low or not…

    Any good deal for 3700X?

  •  

    At this price I may as well just upgrade my motherboard at the same go.

    How big of a jump is the 5600x from an i7 6700k?
    Paired with an rtx 2070.

      5 year old intel processor

      4 Cores, 8 Threads @4.0GHz, Skylake vs 6 Cores, 12 Threads @3.7GHz, Zen3.

      No brainer bro

        Thanks, I know the spec diff, but realistically will the performance jump be that big in gaming?

        • +7 votes

          With your CPU, I would wait until 2022 for a fresh new AMD socket AM5.

          •  

            @dreamscene: if the gain is proportional, then it is fine to just buy the 5600x now, it all comes down to how urgent op needs it.

            it will be a huge difference, especially in gaming.

          Depends on the game, but I don’t think you’ll see a big jump, certainly not a jump worth paying $600+ (accounting for RAM). An RTX2070 IMHO is a perfect match for something like a 6700K, upgrading either component without the other will not let you take the full advantage of your upgrade. I have a 6700 (non K) and a 2060, while I am tempted by these deals I’m going to hold off till next year. By then hopefully the next gen GPUs will be available at affordable prices and next gen CPUs too. Or at least the current gen hardware will be a lot cheaper.

            @opt: Do you think a i5 6600k and 1070 gtx is worthy of an upgrade ?

            • +6 votes

              @Carbon Door: Depends on your use. My main CPU is 12 years old and it doesn't matter at all to me except for having to wait a few extra seconds for unzipping files and getting a few less FPS in games that I really don't care about. I'm planning to wait for Zen 4 CPUs and DDR5 RAM to be released sometime next year.

              Certainly wouldn't be upgrading the graphics card unless you're a mad keen gamer. Now is a very bad time to be buying graphics cards and prices should be much lower in 6 months or less.

              •  

                @B3: Thanks for input, I'll wait till next year to upgrade to the new Zen 4 chips.

      You can have a look at this comparison chart from AnandTech:
      https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/2676?vs=2652

      Generally speaking, if you play at a lower res like 1080p, you will see improvements but there will be diminishing returns as you go higher in res as it becomes more GPU limited.

      I had a 4770K so not quite the same but when I upgrade to the 3700X I definitely noticed smoother gaming across the board (less fps dips) particularly in Rise of the Tomb Raider where sometimes it'd randomly dip into the 40's making for a jerky experience. I have a 2070S playing at 1440p.

    AMD 5600X+ Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE WIFI Combo - $559.20 after 20% off, $545.22 after 22% OFF(ebay.com.au) —-> has price changed for this? Can't seem to get this price?

    Purchased the 5600X + MSI MAG B550 TOMAHAWK Combo, thanks OP! Finally upgrading my 10 year old i7-3930k, which is still performing well to this day but I thought it's time to change it up.

  •  

    any 5600x + itx combo? or even mATX?

    •  

      If you follow the link there are a whole heap of b550m (mATX) options in the drop down menu.

    Itx jeebus. Such a ridiculous stagnant platform.

    Typical they've increased the price on the MSI B550m pro vdh wifi board to $169 from $129 !

    I'd buy but whats the point without a gpu.

    Curious, have a 3600 and b450 bazooka, any pc gamer boys out there have a opinion of if it's worth the upgrade?

      No way. Not worth it. The 3600 is still very comparable to the 5600x.
