The 3600x is $248 in stock and if you have Amex, you can get 20% off to get it to the price of a 3600

u/pilottroll · 24 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

It's actually only $20 off if you look at other vendors like newegg or amazon.

u/Katzi_33 · 7 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

$229 on Amazon right now for 24 hours.

For someone just starting out I think the first, best thing you can do is head on over to https://pcpartpicker.com/list/.

It's a system builder that lists parts, allows you to search through products and price out a virtual build before you start buying.

One good thing is that is check for compatibility between the different parts you choose so you don't run into any trouble. Like if you start off by picking an AMD processor when you go to search for a motherboard it will only list AMD boards (instead of Intel boards) and only boards that work with that chip.

So it's a great resource for first time builders to start getting a better understanding of the parts they need.

As far as MicroCenter it's hands downs the best place to go to buy your CPU & motherboard because of the combo deal. Check their website for some of the other parts you need because they might also offer a discount with those, for things such as SSDs, GPUs, and ram.

But I would also look around (for parts other than your CPU & mobo) on sites like Amazon and Newegg to try and find the best price for your chosen parts.

WARNING: Never buy a monitor from Newegg. Their return policy is garbage, you need to have something like 8 dead pixels for them to do a return. For other items though you can sometimes find good deals.

Also start browsing around on /r/buildapcsales. You'll see some deals but also be sure to read the comments. You'll get on the ground insight from users as to what the good products and the good companies are. I knew nothing about building PCs when I started and I learned almost everything passively just by browsing that sub every day while I looked for deals on parts I needed.

Right now $1500-$2000 can get you a very beefy machine, but there are a lot of choices you're going to have to make as far as what type of machine you want to build.

And I think the first question needs to be do you want to prioritize performance or aesthetics. Now that might sound silly but building your first PC is going to open Pandora's box and once you join the community and start seeing other people's builds there's a good chance you'll find yourself dreaming of having your own glass box with pretty lights one day.

Check out /r/battlestations to see what I'm taking about. You'll see some gorgeous machines there.

Now building a nice looking machine doesn't mean you'll be running a piece of under powered crap, it just means that, staying within a budget, sometimes you'll shave a little off the top in terms of overall performance for something that might make you smile when you look at it. Like spending a bit extra on some 3200Mhz RGB ram modules over some 3600Mhz non RGB sticks. One is faster and cheaper, one is a bit slower and much prettier.

Aesthetics are very important to some people, so ask yourself if you care about that. If you don't that works too! You can put the extra money towards more performance and shove all your shit into a windowless black box that you never have to see.

After that you're going to need to figure out which type of CPU you want, Intel or AMD. The chasm of competition and fanboy-ism that separates these two is as wide as Mac vs PC. Here Intel is Mac and AMD is PC. Intel is the powerful, fancy, over priced company with very good products and some very shitty anti-consumer practices. AMD is the cheeky underdog upstart that does a lot of things better and for much cheaper but also can be plagued with issues.

For someone just starting out I would suggest buying the entry level CPU for the current generation of chips. For Intel I think that would be the i5 9600k (don't quote me on that, I know less about Intel than AMD) and for AMD I would suggest looking at the Ryzen 5 3600x. I'm suggesting the slightly more expensive version of their base model because it comes with a better stock cooler and it's slightly faster right out of the box without having to manually tune it which might be difficult for a beginner.

Now there are more powerful, more expensive CPUs you can buy that have more CPU cores, but mostly these don't really benefit gaming all that much. You're usually much better off spending extra money on on your GPU since that is what is going to power your games.

For GPUs it's a very similar story of competition, except here it's AMD (yes they make GPUs too) vs NVidia. Same story though with NVidia playing the part of Mac. These are a little harder to blindly recommend without knowing more about your build (like what type of monitor you want) but I'll give you three safe options.

  • The 1660 Ti ($250-300) An NVidia card, a pretty solid choice for playing games on Ultra settings at 1080p resolution. Frame rates vary by game but expect to see 75-95 FPS consistently. They can also run 1440p but it will be more work, your card will run hotter and louder (because they fans will spin up to keep cool) and average about 50-60 FPS.

  • The 2060 Super. ($400 - $480) Another NVidia card. A lot more card for a lot more money. Great for games at 1080p averaging over 100 FPS and also do well in 1440p around 80 FPS. NVidia cards also have a feature called Ray Tracing which models light and reflections much better than standard and makes everything look very pretty and natural. The problem is it's a BIG performance hit and not many games make use of it right now. It's the technology of tomorrow, not today, so decide if it's worth gettin' in on that early.

  • The 5700 Series. ($370 - $460) Our first AMD cards. This is the brand new line up from AMD, only about a month old. There's the 5700 and the 5700 XT models. 5700 XT is more powerful and typical $50-$60 bucks more, worth it if you ask me, but the 5700 will get you close if you need the savings. These cards will play the shit out of games at 1080p, hitting 130-150FPS easy. When we start talking about monitors you'll hear the magic number 144Hz/144FPS from a lot of enthusiast gamers/builders. This is apparently the Nirvana of frame rates where shit looks butter smooth and it's so orgasmic technically it counts as losing your virginity if you haven't done that yet. Personally I don't get the hype but I have kinda bad vision so I'm not the best person to talk to about that. From AMD you can also look in to the RX 580 and the RX 590 series, which are probably comparable to the 1660 Ti for maybe a little bit cheaper?

    Now comes the question of monitors. I did another right up all about monitors that breaks down the basics. It should give you a solid base of understanding a show you the relation between your monitor and you GPU, basically you don't want to spend a whole lot on a fancy monitor that can display a game at 144 FPS if you buy a less expensive GPU that can only run the game at 80 FPS. You also need to decide on size, smaller screens with lower resolution will need less powerful GPUs to get good FPS, larger screens and higher resolutions need something more powerful. Once you start to know more about what you want you can find the sweet spot balance between your monitor and you GPU.

    Gonna end there cause I'm sure that's a lot to take in.

    Feel to to PM with any questions and enjoy your first build!
u/Odins__Beard · 3 pointsr/Amd

3600X shipped and sold by Amazon. $249.99 + tax. Comes out to about $270.

u/blorgensplor · 3 pointsr/Amd

3600x has popped up so far it seems.

u/Slugged · 3 pointsr/buildapc

Having trouble with new build.

Mobo: Gigabyte X570 Gaming X

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

RAM: 2x 16GB Corsair Vengeance RGB

GPU: Geforce GTX 750 ti (it's old, and the only part I haven't ordered a upgrade for yet. Upgrading next, but want to get this setup to at least power on first)

Hooked everything up with 650w PSU. RAM RGBs light up but that's all. PC won't power on. Thought it might be bad PSU, hooked up a 850w PSU I had sitting around but never actually used, same result (RGB on RAM lights up, but system won't power on). Thought it might be a bad power switch on the case, tried bypassing by connecting the power prongs with a screwdriver, nothing. Starting to think I got a bad MoBo. Any advice?

u/NintendoManiac64 · 3 pointsr/AyyMD

It is not.

 

200GE: Microcenter ($40) vs Amazon ($58)

2200G: Microcenter ($60) vs Amazon ($78)

1600: Microcenter ($80) vs Amazon ($101)

2700: Microcenter ($130) vs Amazon ($160)

3600X: Microcenter ($200) vs Amazon ($235)

3700X: Microcenter ($330) vs Amazon ($355)

2950X: Microcenter ($600) vs Amazon ($622)

2970WX: Microcenter ($800) vs Amazon ($915)

(this list is not exhastive but rather is to give an idea of prices across the entire price range)

 

And Microcenter lets you save a farther $30 when bundling with a motherboard.

https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-3600X-12-Thread-Processor/dp/B07SQBFN2D

3600X for $200. Get it and be happy. Should play nice with existing mobo, though it would certainly appreciate some faster RAM (3200 min, 3600 preferred). Even with your current RAM it'll smoke that 1400 like a cheap cigar. 1400's barely faster than an i7-4770 from 6+ years ago.

Your GPU is a big limiting factor though, if money's limited upgrade that first. I'd swap it for a 1660 Super personally; sell it for $80 or so and you're in the same general price range as your CPU upgrade.

u/Jahf · 3 pointsr/Amd

Yet they have the 3600x @ 249.

well.. if you really want it... https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B07SQBFN2D/ref=dp_olp_new_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=new go under other seller and it's by Amazon.com. Cheaper too at $248.50, the Amazon discount!

u/InfernalRodent · 2 pointsr/Amd

Amazon looks to still have stock of the Ryzen 5 3600X if you look under available sellers one is Amazon itself.

u/casualgamernotsweaty · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Great setup man, only thing I can recommend is switching out that 3600 with a 3600x, as there’s a discount on the 3600x, making it only $7 more than the regular 3600, which is definitely a steal

More specifically, the Ryzen 5 3600X and RTX 2060 6GB would work well if you're going for a mid-ranged build (AMD route).

that is bullshit, there is no valid vendor listed on amazon. No 3k series CPU is available from amazon.de. The one marketplace shop that is listing it for 734 is just a fake/scalping shop. no one would seriously order it from there.

u/groot4lyfe · 2 pointsr/Amd

Nothing popping up on Amazon US either, if it makes you feel any better :)

Ninja edit: I was wrong, looks like the 3600X just popped up stateside

u/nforthofer · 2 pointsr/Amd

He’s telling the truth. 3600x

u/kamiheku · 2 pointsr/buildapc

What does, for example, this Amazon link tell you? For me, in Finland, it says "EUR 19.90 Shipping", so they'll ship it here.

EDIT: You could also try alternate.de, you can request a quote from them and they'll send you an offer containing the shipping costs etc.

u/wzcx · 2 pointsr/CNC

The goal is to get the fastest single core you can, from the latest generation. Buy the 3600X.

u/mrplt · 2 pointsr/bapccanada

You can get a Corsair 275R for $75, RX570 8GB for ~$175 and a 1060 for ~$250. You can also get a 1660 for ~$300.

(I got the case and the RX570 for those prices)

It depends on the province, but I'd say prices in Canada in general are slightly higher than States (except when stuff goes on sale in States)

Example:

Ryzen 3600X (Amazon.com) ($248 USD = $323.1 CAD)

Ryzen 3600X (Amazon.ca) ($348 CAD)

In QC, tax is 15% (well, 14.975%) so you'd end up paying $400 CAD while in NY tax is 8% so you'd pay $349CAD.

Hey bro i made this up in a few minutes, this should be the best bang for your buck, for the next couple years.

u/NorthStarPC · 1 pointr/buildmeapc

Alright, after an hour of searching and compiling, I’ve come up with an AMD-based build with Full RGB aesthetics.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07SQBFN2D/ref=ox_sc_act_image_8?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

This Processor has an insane value for the money. This will handle moderate workstation, browsing, virtualization, and heavy gaming. I feel like you would benefit from a 3600X rather than a 3600 as it has better stock and OC speeds. The 3600X is only $40 more than the 3600 on Amazon.

GPU: MSI Mech OC Radeon RX 5700 XT

https://www.newegg.com/msi-radeon-rx-5700-xt-rx-5700-xt-mech-oc/p/N82E16814137465?item=N82E16814137465

The 5700 XT will absolutely shred 1080p gaming and excel at 1440p gaming. You can easily achieve 144+FPS at 1080p resolution & max settings on Fortnite, Rust, Rainbow Six Siege, CS:GO, Dota, COD, and Minecraft (with heavy mods) and 100+FPS on many AAA titles. In addition to that, the 5700 XT can even handle 4K gaming in games such as Forza, eSport titles, GTA, etc.
I went with the Mech OC model as it is the best model that is still in stock. It’ll provide better thermals compared to blower-styled reference cards.

RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4-3600 16GB

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07TC4TPCN/ref=ox_sc_act_image_5?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

With Zen 2 natively supporting higher RAM frequencies, there’s no reason to not surpass the 3000MHz threshold. 3600MHz seems to be the “sweet spot” for Zen 2 as suggested by AMD and many other technical experts.


SSD: Sabrent Rocket 4 1TB NVMe SSD

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07LGF54XR/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?smid=A29Y8OP2GPR7PE&psc=1

The Sabrent Rocket is among the top of the value for money list in the storage market. This is near equal to Intel’s popular 660p SSD, but it has nearly double the performance. Unlike the Intel 660P, the Rocket 4 uses the Toshiba TLC NAND, which has better quality and sustained speeds during read and write cycles.

MOBO: MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus

https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16813144262?item=N82E16813144262

This motherboard is a mid-range X570 board. It will enable you to have a very decent OC and RGB Sync experience. I would strongly recommend getting a X570 to get PCIe 4.0 support and bypassing the hassle of a BIOS update.

PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA G3 650W 80+ Gold Modular

https://www.newegg.com/evga-supernova-g3-series-220-g3-0650-y1-650w/p/N82E16817438094?item=N82E16817438094

The last thing you want to do in a build is to cheap out on the power supply. The EVGA SuperNOVA series is one of the best PSU series out there. The G3 650W is fully modular, as well as having a 80+ Gold rating. I also believe there is a 10 year warranty of this model. Also, there is currently a $20 rebate on Newegg for this power supply.

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master ML240L AIO Cooler

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B075YPG52N/ref=ox_sc_act_image_3?smid=A1FEO2FBXOY7WI&psc=1

The ML240L is a perfect option for the 3600X. It is one of the best budget AIOs out there. It will provide better thermals compared to stock coolers and bring better RGB aesthetics to the build.

Case: Thermaltake Level 20 MT RGB Mid-Tower

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07LCMR3JC/ref=ox_sc_act_image_4?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

The Level 20 MT is perfect for this build. This is a case that is known to provide good airflow, which will definitely help with the thermals. It also features 3 TT RGB fans, which can be synced to the RAM, MOBO, GPU, and AIO CPU Cooler.

Monitor: Acer KG241Q 23.6” Full HD 144Hz Monitor

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07MG85X1M/ref=ox_sc_act_image_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

The KG241Q is a 1ms, 144hz 1080p monitor with a TN-panel. While the colors are not as vibrant as IPS-Panel monitors, you will get better responsiveness with the TN panels. Also, the KG241Q features AMD FreeSync technology, which can be used to your advantage to reduce stuttering and tearing during gaming, since you have an AMD GPU.

So that’s it. I know this a $100-200 over $1400. But this is a build with no $$$ wasted. If you have any questions, fell free to reply or PM me.

u/Kaan195 · 1 pointr/Amd

I ordered from amazon Canada the 3600x yesterday. It’s coming tomorrow. https://www.amazon.ca/gp/aw/d/B07SQBFN2D?ref=ppx_pt2_mob_b_prod_image

u/Kevin9809 · 1 pointr/Amd

I may go with the 3600X due to the availability issues of the 3600 if I order in the next day or two. The money I would be saving by buying the B450 mobo instead makes it come out to the same total price.

​

By the way, here is what I am looking at currently:

B450 mobo - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07F7W5KJS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Corsair DDR4 3200 2x8GB RAM - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072LX99L9/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

Is this the one your talking about? AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 6-Core, 12-Thread Unlocked Desktop Processor with Wraith Spire Cooler https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SQBFN2D/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_UWb1Db9ZP2GSC. And I plan to upgrade my mother board maybe next year... we’ll more then likely.

go with the current 3600x deal on amazon for $199?

I just bought one (had originally been looking at a 3700x).

Otherwise, the fact that you don't have a monitor (and aren't sure what you can afford)....to me that really determines your GPU decision. Is the 2060 super overkill for 1080p compared to a 1660ti?

I'm seeing the Ryzen 5 3600x going for $270 while the Ryzen 7 2700 is $185. Am I looking at the wrong site (https://www.amazon.ca/AMD-Ryzen-3600X-12-thread-processor/dp/B07SQBFN2D/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Ryzen+5+3600x&qid=1575003441&sr=8-1)? re: the CPU cooler, would that apply to both the Ryzen 5 3600x AND the Ryzen 7 2700? Also thanks for updating the GPU. But a friend has pointed out that 1660Ti are usually not considered worth the money but i'm still researching that. Thanks a bunch on the advice for the PSU. The SSD is more of a personal preference but thanks.

that would be amazing and I'm all about saving money lol. thanks

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SQBFN2D/?tag=pcpapi-20 is amazon not a recommended place to get parts?

How much were you planning to spend on that processor? Assuming it’s around the price PCPARTPICKER is showing, I’d maybe consider switching to AMD for that price.

If you’re okay with switching to AMD, you can get the new Ryzen 7 3700X for $329 MSRP and it is a very nice bang for your buck. 8 cores 16 threads for that price is amazing (your current CPU is 6 cores & 12 threads). You can also get an included CPU cooler (something intel does not typically include) which can save you even more $$.

More bang for your buck, better performance, an extra bonus cooler. Very nice deal.

If you do decide to go with that, you’ll need to swap your motherboard to a X470 or X570 board to support the AMD chip. I think you’ll get a much better bang for your buck this way.

Even a step down to the Ryzen 5 3600X for $234.99 is very nice value for your money. (6 cores 12 threads). Just depends on what you were willing to spend on that i7 8700. It out does that processor from what I’ve seen and is cheaper. Very nice deal as well.

The 3600x seems to be sold by an AMD authorized resellet at MSRP if anyone is interested.

if you were really buying it for $500 then you might as well get the 3600x for retail price at $350

Here is the 3600x, the 3600 is $50 cheaper, but comes with 200mhz lower clocks, and it remains to be seen if you can overclock it to 4.4ghz. However, for most applications it's not really a noticeable difference.

That being said, the 3600X compares to the i7-8700k, and in some games will even outperform a 9900k.

Yep saw that. I was planning to start buying parts tonight after kids are in bed. Overclockers still says pre-order so not sure what that means.

Its better to build it yourself. That way you know to what quality it was built to and its cheaper.

Also do you need to go with Intel? Not only is it a couple generations old, but you could get a 3rd Gen Ryzen 6 core thats vastly faster and better for cheaper. If you wanted to go even faster and STILL have it cheaper you can get a Ryzen 8 core.

AMD put online at least some 3700x's on Amazon, this triggered the notification that went out, but apparently the number they said could be fulfilled was fulfilled in minutes. 3900x's were on the AMD site itself, but you couldn't use the "shop" section to get to them, you had to find the 3900x product page, THEN click "add to cart". Those are sold out as well. Only the 3600x's that are on Amazon are the ones that still seem to be in stock: https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-3600X-12-Thread-Processor/dp/B07SQBFN2D.

Newegg has 3600x's as well: https://www.newegg.com/amd-ryzen-5-3600x/p/N82E16819113568.

I haven't seen anywhere reporting 3600's, 3800, or 3800x as being available yet.

edit: /u/Morbis0688 was correct-I double checked the mail I got and it was a cpu sold by someone else. I had clicked through to AMD's storefront however, which is where my confusion was.
