[Canada Computers] AMD Ryzen 7 3700X CPU - $329.99 + FS

8-Core/16-Thread 7nm Processor 3.6GHz/ 4.4 GHz Boost CPU. The Ryzen 5 5600X is faster at single thread tasks, but at this price the Ryzen 7 is a better deal with more cores/threads.

There will be the CCC haters that will probably downvote b/c of the vendor so PM with ME. I've only dealt with CCC a few times, but the experience has been positive. I think primary objection is their return policy and price gauge of GPU's.

The 5600G is faster than 3700X for gaming, and CC has 5600G for 289 right now. For basic use either are going to be comparable. If you are doing highly multi-threaded content creation the 3700X would have an edge but you have to compare that against the price and TDP difference.

Would the 5800x be better than 5600x for gaming?

Yes but barely, you are talking about a couple FPS, unlikely to actually notice the difference.

The gap gets tighter the higher the resolution. These benchmarks are usually taken at 1080p. You will start to notice any difference a lot less at 2560x1440, even more less at 3440x1440 etc, where the load is more on the GPU. Ideally in this case the 5600 is better then all around (price and performance) and the extra savings you can put towards a better GPU.

Thanks for posting OP! I got the last 3700x in Mississauga last week. It works very nicely on my old Asus B350M plus gaming (with bios updated).

5600G has integrated graphics. No graphics card required, but a GPU can be added later, if desired...

5600G
How is that GPU holding up vs Intel Onboard and dedicated graphic cards?
Will I need a particular mainboard due to the HDMI port that I need? Normally, HDMI ports would be on the dedicated graphic card and not the mainboard.

I built a 3700X build early this year and love it. The stock cooler is very loud though, even if you mess with the fan curves.
So I recommend a better cooler if you want to be done in one shot. I got the Noctua NH-U12S chromax.black.

Here you go:

5600G motherboards

You may have to update the BIOS on some of these boards...
