New cpu: 3800xt Vs 5600X

Situation: I live in Brazil, and right now we have the most depreciated currency in 2020.  The usd cost rose about 30% since august.

 

So i had been planning since 2019 to build a new rig to replace my 8 year old(i5 3570k) current one thats starting to show signs of its age. With the pandemic/USD rise in brazil, everything thats imported is getting more expensive.

 

Im going with AMD this time and im hoping to buy a motherboard+RAM during blackfriday. I was hoping to get Ryzen5000 (probably 5600x or an eventual 5700x) but with the price increase + USD im expecting a much higher price for these new components while the ryzen 7 3800xt is on relatively good price (probably pre USD rise stock)

 

Even with ryzen 5000 performance being unknow at this moment, is getting a 3800xt a bad decision at this moment?

 

Quick edit: Im going to stay at 1080p for the foreseable future. Whenever i change monitors, mostly 1440p. Aside from that, minor data processing.

Yeah the 3800xt is NOT worth the big pricehike over a 3700 or 3700x you can basically buy a board with the difference in price and only be behind 5% in performance. If this is a pure gaming rig the ryzen 5600x will probably just be the better pick anyways.

With it being so close to launch, your best bet is to wait until Zen 3 third party reviews are out.

Main: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, Nvidia GTX 780, 16 GB 2667 MT/s DDR4 Fedora 33 x86_64

Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3 Windows 10 Home x86_64

Server: Intel Xeon X5670, 60 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3-R Ubuntu Server 20.04.1 LTS x86_64

Laptop: Intel Core i5-3320M, 16 GB 1600 MT/s DDR3 Fedora 32 x86_64

Most certainly, im right now just messing with spreadsheets and seeing how my budget looks like.

 

But definitely waiting for the reviews.

As i mentioned below, im actually doing some planning still, and so im considering the 3700x/3900x as well, it will all come down to the reviews that will come out + my budget available, would you say that those two are bad choices as well? (i.e should i consider them still?)

I'd say you can't go wrong getting a Zen2 part (They're still great gaming CPU's), and it sounds like you're doing your due diligence in getting a decent value out of the available CPU's.

Main: AMD Ryzen 7 1700X, Nvidia GTX 780, 16 GB 2667 MT/s DDR4 Fedora 33 x86_64

Secondary: Intel Xeon X5670, Nvidia GTX 660, 24 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3 Windows 10 Home x86_64

Server: Intel Xeon X5670, 60 GB 1333 MT/s DDR3-R Ubuntu Server 20.04.1 LTS x86_64

Well, quoting you: Ryzen go brrrrr

 

The choice between 3000 and 5000 now is more economical/fear of prices going way too high out of my reach for a prolonged period of time (if 5000 is a clear better choice, i might wait even at the risk of my current system going kaboom)
