I currently have a
r5 3600 (non x)
msi b550m pro vdh wifi the vrms on my current mobo are 6 phase 4+2, that board is 8+2 , I don't know anything about good features on a motherboard or how to decide if it's a good deal or not, I know the 5800x3d is a great cpu slouch I see that same cpu for less at other places like micro center or even Amazon but I don't think I would trust buying that off Amazon the cpu alone on newegg is $393 but it's $350at microcenter, I'm just inquiring as I do want to upgrade my cpu/motherboard I just stunt know how much performance I'll gain.

Full specs
R5 3600
B550m pro vdh wifi
32 gigs 3200 CL 16
Asus ko 3060ti
Case is a coolermaster masterbox m311b

Honestly for that money, skip that deal. From the ads I’ve been getting they are running a special, buy a ryzen 7700x or higher and they will give you a 32gb ddr5 memory kit free, and I think 20 bucks off a compatible board. Keep in mind as well, the price on the 7700x just dropped to to $349.

I’ve got a 5900x and don’t need to upgrade but at that price….. if I get Christmas money, I may be selling my cpu and upgrading my cpu etc.

i do not want to go to an am5 chip, you have to buy cpu/mobo/cooler, case ( cpus run 95 degres celcius) , the ram they give you isnt even mid tier

deal look good but if a part of it is defective you will have to return all the kit so ou might be better to put more money in and get the cpu and board not in a pack .
