Hi, my first post here and I kinda need help from the experts... So I have a friend who's going to build a new PC which will be used in Gaming, Video Editing and Streaming. We spent about 2 days arguing whether he should get a 5600x or a 5800x for his new build and he's on a budget, I told him to go for a 5600x as I thought it'd be enough for what he'll use the PC for at almost half the price of a 5800x and he told me that he wants to go for the 5800x because it has the additional 2 Cores and 4 Threads and an additional 100Mhz on both Base and Boost clock.

 

I think it'd be not worth to add a whole 220$ for just 100Mhz in Base and Boost clocks and just 2 Cores and 4 Threads if a 5600x would be doing what he's gonna do with ease (as I think) so correct me if I'm wrong and the 5600x wouldn't be sufficient for those tasks. But if the 5600x would be enough and can handle all that with ease then tell me too so I can finally convince him not to throw an extra 220$ and direct it into something else. HELP.

Make sure you wait till reviews come out, then PPD is more apparent

If Ryzen 5000 has the sameish amounts of performance increase between 5 and 7 that 3000 series did:

This in my mind comes down to are you willing to spend that extra money. If you have that extra $220 and are looking for something to spend it on, and don’t think it would be better used by getting a larger SSD, a better GPU, or more RAM, go for it.

wait till reviews come out. also cpu is only part of a build so saying "this cpu is a better choice for you than the other" doesnt always apply.

 

for ryzen 5000 pricing tho, best value goes to 5900x and 5950x. 5600x and 5800x are significantly worse value.

Based on what we have so far leaked by AMD, would the Ryzen 5 5600x be enough for the listed tasks above?

Like I said, wait for reviews. Based on leaks I’d wager a yes, but not if you’re doing super heavy video editing. Who really knows the performance increases yet.

I hope your computer isn't stuck on Italics

 

Gaming is quite alright on a six core, video editing can mean a lot of things, and streaming off the graphics card is a great option so you can basically remove the CPU from the equation. I would say saving money on the CPU and spending it more on the rest of the system is a good option.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Seeing as how you can do these tasks on a 4 core chip from 4 years ago, yes. Will the 5800x do it better? Yes. Is value more important than absolute speed? Only your friend can answer that. 

 

"Enough" is a funny thing. Everyone has different expectations. We don't know your friend so can't answer that for him.

I'd even consider a 3700x vs the 5600x for the same price if he really wants those extra cores. Depends on how much gaming vs editing he's doing, if you stream x264 I'd go for a 3700x for sure
