Which CPU for editing PC

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 2-3 hours a day (not professionally): Lightroom + Photoshop for the most part. DaVinci resolve (free version). Sometimes I use Blender and casual gaming in between.  

 

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): 

 

I have a i5 7500 currently, which is too slow specially in export/renderning and other CPU intensive tasks. I have already looked up that Ryzen 5000 series is my best option. But the question is: Which one should i get? There is a 260€ difference between the R5 5600X and R9 5900X and R7 5800X is right in the middle. Which of these would be the better option for my use case. I don't like to wait too long on the PC to perform it's task  - but don't want to buy something overkill ither. The Ryzen 5 looks to be quite close looking at the scores from the benchmarks so is it even worth jumping to the R7/R9?

I will be having at least 16gb ram (might upgrade to 32gb).pic_disp.jfif

Have you set it to render with the GPU in blender? I think only the pro version of davinci resolve supports gpu rendering

For your use the 5900X will be the best option, but it all comes down to budget.

I dont think its worth pursuing the 5800X as the price increase dont match the performance bump over the 5600X

If you want me to answer, please use the quote function or tag me. I dont get notified unless you do
