5600x at roughly the same price. 11400F if you can even find one. 10400F if you want to save.

$150 more you may want a 5800x, but 5600x is just better value at that point unless you want 8 cores.

5600x has went down to 329.99, if you're not in a hurry and don't need the extra core. I would recommend waiting for Black Friday, it's a much better deal

Honestly there isnt a straight forward answer to this. There are a lot of options depending on rather you need extra core or higher core speed. Also it depends on what existing hardware you have or what you plan on buying and the budget you have for everything.

What i can say is this is pretty "fair value" for a 3700X now. It isnt exactly a hot deal nor is it cold. Its competitive and if it fits your needs, its a good deal. Personally i would recommend a 5600X or 5800X (if you have the budget for it). Of course again it depends on what else you plan on buying and your budget. I.e. while there is no doubt 5800X is better, if you rather save that money and spend it on a better GPU, that could be a better option. Even a 3300X is good enough for some lower end GPU and the benefits of buying a better CPU isn't that big. On the flip side if you have a $1000+ GPU, then you might as well get a 5800X or better CPU instead of "wasting" the GPU.
