        The case alone is $999. I think you’ll be fine

          I'm in the process of choosing parts for a new build. I have decided to go with AMD this turn. The why?...I have been a watching the work of AMD over the past two years and have been impressed with the positive movement versus Intel in performance. Though in many instances Intel holds the edge, AMD has made leaps with Ryzen compared to the Athlon and FX series. In all, price to performance is to be the biggest factor for me. My current build is getting a bit old, but functions quite well. MB: Gigabyte Z170, CPU: i5 6600K, GPU: EVGA GTX 580

            If the haters are going to call you a shill. You should own it. They are always going to hate. It is their hobby.
            Like you said yourself. If both sides are pissed you must be doing something correct. Keep up the great work!

              My two cents? Keep the 9980XE, it's a killer build. Then, make a build closely resembling your OG system to pay homage! (Just beefed up by modern day Jay skills) More builds, more videos, it's a win for everyone :)
              As for my build, going for 3700x, from a 4770k. Gaming in 1440p with a side of streaming, and PCIe 4.0 to futurereproof. Just waiting on a good candidate to replace my OC'd 1070Ti, one that won't burn a hole in my pocket!

                Haha, simple choice, you already built the majority of the system with the 9980XE, keep it. It's lapped, you know it overclocks like a beast and the "upgrade" is basically the same CPU with slightly higher clocks. Its nice to see intel on the back foot for a change, now they need to smack AMD back down and force them to focus on improving their support, AGESA and compatibility.

                  Hey you guy...speaking about AMD and Intel who is the best and powerful ofcourse I shoos AMD because of his architecture 7nm and his lower price than Intel CPU.. but don't miss the 10th gen of Intel CPU has 14 nm architecture and we remark that the deference of benchmark is not far between the two cpu.. i think when Intel produce cpu's whith 7 nm it will beet Amd

                    I've just bought the Ryzen 5 3600 because of the value and performance it offers - am upgrading from my i5 4690K which is 5yrs old now - I usually upgrade every 4-5yrs - I usually go with whoever is offering the best value/performance CPU for the money + with AM4 I can drop in a Ryzen 7 or even a 9 if I need more performance at a later date when they are as cheap as a Ryzen 5 😁

                      9980 didn’t make sense when you started the build regardless of any new cpus

                        First world problems... what to choose...

                        My current builds are centered around the Ryzen 3600. The WHY is that I am building rigs for gaming and media consumption. The 3600 is an amazing value and gives great gaming performance. More cores is nice and higher FPS is nice but the gaming experience is not better and that is the only benchmark I shoot for, pure gaming performance. The reduced cost in the CPU means I can focus on the GPU. I also however use the savings to worry about better monitors and peripherals to enhance the gaming experience in a more meaningful way than a more expensive CPU will give.

                          9900K, really wanted to go team red just for support, but my use case is almost entirely gaming and from what you, GN and LTT have said 9900k wins that fight.

                              Jay honestly... Youre barely using the pc. Just buy the parts that speak to you and you think are really cool. That's what I do and I barely use my PC to its full potential. Support the stuff you like to support.

                                      I'm going to try and go for a Ryzen 3800x the price is just so good for the cores. I do a lot of compiling and multi-tasking and stuff.
                                      It's just hard to beat that many cores. If something takes 2 seconds longer to do I just switch to another things I'm working on while I wait.

                                      I use my pc mostly for web dev (programming, light photoshop, server stuff), so I normally focus on these:

                                      3800x: The cores for multi-tasking, when you have 10 tabs open, ps, 4 ides, 4 terminals, 2 different server instances and so on... you need all you can get.
                                      64gp gskill: I need the ram for large files or projects. I've once opened a 15gb json file... just think about that for a second...
                                      2x nvme: Manjaro, windows (I have these)
                                      I am trying to get the pci card for more m.2 drives. I want to replace my ssd. I like them and all, but they are somewhat old and why not save the space with something like this? Also they don't need to be big, but focus on speed as I just need them for active projects and I can swap the stuff around with my wd green drives.

                                      Oh and of course a gpu... mine is a bit old (r9 290x sapphire), but I can still play dota and most AAA if I drop the quality, so I will probably just stick with it for another year or so, and maybe grab something used after that.

                                              20 years ago we were having the same conversation - AMD has always been the best cost-performance die between the two.

                                                  I am getting deployed in 6 months and plan on doing a "hardcore water cooled build" (as I explained to my dad). I am currently doing research but was looking at a high end threadripper 3970x. I use my computer primarily for gaming so it is still up in the air what cpu to use. My father said might as well since you are water cooling and going balls to the wall hardcore style. I digress (see what I did there) it will most likely change because I wont actually build until after deployment which I wont get back till summer of 2021.

                                                  Let me know if you have any ideas.

I'm a composer so I've got the tough job of needing LOTS of multi-threading on a host machine (housing sounds in Vienna Ensemble Pro) with tons of RAM AND I also need the DAW machine to multi-thread BUT have single-thread performance for things like Reverb, EQ, Compression, etc.

                                                                                      I used to always be AMD, since I first started "building" PCs in the late 90's. I went to the devil in 2015 since AMD didn't have any compelling offers. But I am a creator, I write software and this cpu has the type of I/O connectivity and core count to facilitate the sort of high demanding work I do. The cpu will replace a number of scattered servers that help me to the same stuff, but now in one unified platform. Assuming I can get a chip, always sold out, only been 2 weeks though I know.

                                                                                                So, how often do you build your machines? Sounds like it is every six months. Basically, you're hot rodding your builds and you don't care if you get a blow out.
                                                                                                Well, I'm different. I build my machines to last. Every Intel based machine I have built has lasted over five years. I have not had one AMD machine last more than 18 months.
                                                                                                It's nice that you are showing performance, but until you can show durability, I am not going to waste my money on AMD.
