For Gaming 5800X3D (or if you're near a MicroCenter you can score a 5600X3D for cheaper)

For Production 5900X

Don't forget to check your bios version for supported CPU's .


Too Many CPUs & GPUs to list...

nice to know, I'm not from the US so i dont have a microcenter, but i can buy it from amazon, Bios is up to date as i replaced the GPU recently from a 2060 12gb version to the rx6800 xt and feared a problem with the bios version i had, but thank you for the suggestion 

I would first consider adding more RAM to give you 32 GB before I would swap from the AMD 5600X CPU to the AMD 5800X3D CPU.  That CPU upgrade will cost you $300 USD on Amazon right now.  

As Albert Einstein said, "I could have done so much more with a Big Al's Computer!".

oh yeah thats another upgrade that im going to do in december
