Hey guy's, I'm upgrading my Ryzen 1700x but I'm keeping my B350 MOBO. Can you give me a couple options for under 350 bucks? I care about gaming performance mainly. Thanks

And why you wanna do that?

If you want to stay at 8 cores, the 3700X is the relatively obvious choice.

*3800X

3800x is on sale and 20-30 bucks more than 3700x. Worth it? I updated my Bios yesterday with no probs so hopefully either chip will run okay on my b350 Mobo?

Gaming performance difference is negligible by most reports. I'd stick with the 65w 3700X.

Hey there pizzapunx! If I was you I would go for a Ryzen 7 2700x. It is on sale on Amazon for around $150 at the moment and is a very very nice core. If I was you I’d put my money into that. It’s less expensive than any of the Ryzen 5’s and preforms a lot better.

Depends on which B350 motherboard it is. If it has decent VRM heat-sinking to handle the 2700X power needs, and if a modest improvement over the 1700X is OK, then sure. 1700X to 2700X is not a huge performance jump, it's less than 2700X to 3700X in most cases IIRC.

Ryzen 7 3800X is around 350 and is the best ryzen not a ryzen 9. Update your BIOS first though.

For 350 he could get a 3700x/3800x.
