Intel 5930K to Ryzen

If one owns a Intel 5930K system as their primary machine ( I won the parts in a 2014 giveaway) and wants to build a Ryzen machine now to be the primary, what would be the recommended CPU to exceed performance?


I am not a gamer but want a high end machine that is fast and will future proof things for a bit. I keep things a long time.


I do more creator type things and just want a really fast machine for all PC tasks. I was looking at a 3950X but keep being told it is overkill and I should get a 3900X. I am not sure what to think as I have never used AMD and there is 6 years between my machine and current offerings. I knew I did not need anything like a threadripper but am confused on other chips.


I am happy with the current machine but am a tech lover and just want to build something new and make this machine my secondary. I want to avoid buyers remorse.

I was looking at the Gigabyte X570 Master.

Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4 32GB (4x8GB)
Gigabyte X99-SOC Force motherboard
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Classified Reference Edition graphics card
EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 G2 power supply
Intel Corei7 5930K processor
Thermaltake Core V71
Noctua cooler that replaced a failed AIO.

Various SSDs and backup 7200RPM HDDs


I appreciate any advice you can offer.


Thank you
