Zen 3 gaming CPU, Ryzen 9 5900X, AMD’s second-fastest gaming CPU, down to $495


AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900X It ranks first in our report on The best gaming CPUsThe only real downside is the price (especially since it doesn’t come with a cooler bundled). Now that it’s widely available, though, it’s subject to discounted pricing. For cleverness, you can buy one today for US$494.99 From Antonline (through the retailer’s eBay account).

That’s a good chunk under $549 for an MSRP. It’s even $5 less than the asking price of the Micro Center, which is notable because the Micro Center usually undermines the competition with the caveat that you need to live near one of their retail locations. If you want it, and also need a motherboard, this is still your best bet – you can save an extra $20 when you bundle the CPU with a qualified mobo. Otherwise, this is the lowest price found.
