Looking for advice on AMD CPU

Budget (including currency): -

Country: Sweden

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: -

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

 

Looking for advice on the new AMD cpu 5000 series is it worth it compared to the 3900 series 

And which Asus Motherboard and ram would be worth it with any of these two cpu's ?

 

 

PS: This is my first time going for AMD, i used to go for intel all the time.

Well depends on your budget.

Some people will be satisfied with a $100 board, some with $200.

If you build this new, and got the budget, definitely go for 5000 series.

Ryzen 2600 @ 4ghz | Radeon RX580 | 32gb HyperX 3200mhz | 500gb Samsung PM981a | 5 TB HDD | Corsair CX450

Is there any big difference between the 2 cpus? 

And there is no budget.

The performance jump of the 5000 cpu make them the better choice. 

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

well 5900x will perform roughly 15-25% more than 3900.

Plus it's outperforming any Intel cpu at the moment.

Hard to make a recommendation without knowing the use case or feature requirements. A realistic budget would also help given that the most expensive motherboard is nearly six times that of the lowest.

 

Is rgb or argb important? How about Wi-Fi or Bluetooth? Do you want a front panel USB-C port? What, if any expansion cards will be used? How many gpu? What size motherboard?

Its going to be with the case ROG Strix Helios which has usb c on the front panel.  Wifi and bluetooth isnt needed but if it has it it isnt the big of a deal. we have 2 m.2 ssd's for tthe mobo and gpu coming out soon if the stocks are actually available for the GTRX 3080.

 

Im just stuck on what motherboard would be decent or recommend for amd cpu.  If it was for intel I would have been done, but with amd its been confusing for me. And for rgb will be handy yes.
