While you no longer need to figure out where to buy the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, its price is less predictable. Known to deliver a breathtaking performance, especially in gaming, the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X is among the most affordable of the AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPUs. Unfortunately, its price has been flip-flopping the last few weeks, at times cheaper than its list price, at times more expensive.
Still, its appeal lies in its ability to balance performance and price, which still makes it the best option for budget-minded gamers with demanding needs. In the US, it's cheaper than it's ever been. Both B&H and Amazon are selling it for $393, for example. Meanwhile, in the UK, Curry's and Overclockers are selling it for £380 and £382 respectively.
Now's a good time to invest in the AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, especially if you're in the US. After all, the chip might be in stock now, but you never know when it will go out of stock again.
