It's not as though the 5600X and 5800X aren't the best gaming CPUs. They are. But there are two issues: the price went up considerably $450 for a 5800X when you can get a i7-10700K for $380. And worse, they are simply not available anywhere. I am planning on a building a new PC Nov/Dec for the holidays and I'm afraid I need to go Intel simply because AMD is sold out everywhere.

The AMD naming scheme for CPU's and GPU's frankly sucks Why the FRACK is there an X in both, why the hell are both at 5000/6000 even though it's the same generation (And for GPUs it's not the same generation) ? Do they want to intentionally confuse people? Blkegh!

Please note that this is valid for Australia. This might not be the case for other territories/countries. Also, it's "almost" as bad as the stock for the 3080s is still better than the 3080 launch

5600X with either a 6800 XT or 3080, who the hell knows when I'll easily be able to pick that up.

Well as long as the shortage is too effing bad. Been doing a ton of research and it looks like the 6800XT is going to be the sweet spot for this generation of cards. Hope I can get one before Xmas. I've been holding off on RDR2 for my new rig and I'll hold off on 2077 too - probably, heh.
I'm in the same boat, I can't play RDR2 on my 4k monitor. The game isn't even close to playable on my 1080TI. I'm not going to put too much weight into the Australian supply issues, North America they are not. Hardware Unboxed is an awesome Youtube channel, tho.
