wait for 5900X or get 5800X tomorrow?

Hi all,

 

I bought my 5900X off ebuyer on the 14th of December and their stock delivery is getting pushed back non stop. I am expecting to have it in my hands no sooner than early March. I have all of the parts just sitting waiting to be assembled, so I cant return and wait for 6900X. Now I want my pc to last 5-6 years for gaming and light photoshop, am I best off waiting or just getting the 5800X and sacrifice the 5900X which to me seems like a lot of performance to loose. 

 

Thanks 🙂

I want to but I fear that in 4 years i'll regret not waiting an extra month for an extra year or 2 of solid performance

Thats what my gut is telling me but i'm become impatient now (considering this is the 4th delay), also, I want to get the Far Cry 6 code because they extended the redemption date from the 31/12/20 to 30/1/21 (UK format) which I have tried contacting them a few days ago raising my concern but with no progress

From what you say you're using your system for a 5800x sounds fine.
