B&H has it for $399 and no tax using their store card. I got mine for $369 total after selling my Avengers code. Still not as good as the guy who got his for $240 tho. Huehue.
Gotta love intel for being the value option in 2020, lol
I just built my new system from a 4790k to a 10850k using the same 980ti. Logged out of WoW at about 58fps on the old system logged in on the new system at 109 fps. Same settings as the drive with the game on it was carried over.I too was tempted, but since I can't buy a gpu anyway I will keep waiting on the 5900x. I'm still rocking a 4790k and a gtx 970, without being able to buy a gpu it would just be a waste.
My guess is we're 2 months from the 11900kBe very careful here .... the 11900K is coming out very very shortly. It's been rumored Intel will launch this chip @ $399 as it's only 8 core. And if you guys did'nt know, the new 11900K beats out the 5950x in single threaded performance, which is what really counts as 90% of PC people are gamers.
Later this year, Alderlake will launch, 1700 socket and will feature up to 16 cores. Basically, according to all the information out there, AMD's performance lead will be very shortly lived.
