Cause a system with a 5xxx cpu will be stiller baller for a long time? Not everyone upgrades every cpu release. I just sold my 3950x and will upgrade to a probably a 5900x and that will be my system for the next 5 years. We really are gpu bound more then anything nowadays when you try to push 4k or higher.Why the heck would you go high end on the board NOW??
AM4 is on its last legs. This is the last run before DD5, USB4, etc etc. Imo this is throwing away money cuz after this gen (2021) the industry will be shifting to DD5. Hmm, I suppose if you don't plan on moving to the next platform then this is a non-issue. If it were me I'd get a midrange board, a Strix-E/CH8 Hero which is 95% of a Crosshair and call it a day.
