It always depends on targets and what people want to play, but yeah in general I do think CPUs will last through the next socket. I just can't imagine the 5800X3D becoming obsolete in the next 5 years. But also consoles definitely cycle more than 5 years too, I'm not sure if you were commenting on that side or just CPU side since you included that sentence.

For me specifically, I've been unimpressed with AAA games for some time, so I'm just not excited for any upgrades. I think my most intensive game right now is heavily modded Skyrim, and probably the updated TW3, if and when I get a new RT GPU. Skyrim especially is GPU limited for me, and it's also hard to find people benchmarking (you can load up a lot of mods to improve graphics but it's hard to test that).

Anyway Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and everyone else on here.
Merry Christmas to you as well. I'm giving my mother and sister (they're under the same roof) a PC that I made from spare parts with an FX-8350 and an R9 Fury. It's replacing a PC with a Phenom II X4 940 and HD 6450 running Windows 7 with 6GB of DDR2-800.

If my sister wants to, she'll be able to easily play Skyrim on that (and Witcher III too!).

Considering 5800X3D, 7600X and 13600K have virtually the same gaming performance, the clear winner for me is the 7600X. AM5 is a new socket with a lot of potential for upgrades. DDR5 is not irrelevant anymore, games can take advantage of faster memory.

And tod top it off, prices are still falling as we speak.
If you already have an AM4 board the obvious choice is the 5800X3D, no need to jump to a new platform when you still can squeeze more value out of your current mobo
 
You gotta keep in mind that the difference between 3200 and 3600 DDR4 on the 5800x3d has shown to be negligible - the 3D cache just makes up for slow ram. That does shave off some cost. Plus it's becoming generally well known that you can undervolt the 5800x3d by offset and remain stable and get lower temperatures and higher boost clocks out of the deal. I probably wouldn't recommend anyone building a new system on an end of life socket, but for those of us who already have an AM4 board and RAM, the price to performance of buying just a 5800x3d vs anything AM5 and all of the kit to run it is a no-brainer. I'll probably wait until at least the second generation of AM5 to get on board.

I really wasn't going to, but I just ordered a 5800X3D and an RX 6950 XT as my last AM4 upgrade. I had planned to just build a new PC, but pricing of AM5 and 7000/40 Series changed my mind. $338 for the X3D plus free COH 3 which I was going to buy anyway and $699 for a new 6950 XT along with 2 free games. I'll be good for a bit.

Yup. I myself use DDR4-3200 and it's actually the sweet-sport for price and performance with the R7-5800X3D. The increased cost of DDR4-3600 just isn't worth it.

My guess is that you'll be good for at least five years. I'm expecting the same from my rig because I've paired an R7-5800X3D with my RX 6800 XT.
