Prices seem to be dropping across the board with AMD...going to wait it out a little longer and try and get a 3900x.

Perfect time imo. I'd recommend the MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX motherboard and G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800)

The price is only going to drop further in the coming months. Nonetheless a good deal for the 3600x.

Provided Zen 3 chipsets still end up with a launch in the fall? I've been tempted to get a 3600x, but it isn't desperately needed either.

would strongly advise against shopping for parts at Amazon, this CPU has an estimated delivery date of May 14!

Also, this CPU has been cheaper before, and will only continue to get cheaper as we approach the launch of the upgraded version of this CPU in the Fall

For example, the 3600 for $20 less from MemEx is a much better option right now, especially considering you'll get the damn thing within a week instead of in a month

Very good price, considering supply doesn't appear to be the strongest.

Oh, public service announcement. Be very careful of that DoneWIng Amazon seller. I was burned on a Ryzen 3600 by a similar seller. The 3600x the OP linked to is from Amazon, which would be fine.

...
It also says "Available to ship in 1-2 days." under that

~$25 more for a 0.2ghz higher clock

I'm sitting here stuck inside with no job now, and i'd get more use out of my computer compared to waiting a few months from now when prices go down

I ordered a lemon squeezer yesterday that said May 9 delivery. I've received shipping notification and will be delivered by this Wednesday.

Whenever something seems off on long dates, it usually is.

Yeah I just requested to cancel the order since it has not shipped yet.
