Theoretically,  from ASUS site

I should be able to install a Ryzen 7 5800X3D

Do not know if its still worth it

I had the 5800X3D previously, upgraded from the 5900X and saw a very noticeable improvement in frames. It's definitely a recommended upgrade if you are remaining on the AM4 platform, especially if going from the older 8 core 3800X. On the AMD side, the 5800X3D is really only second to the 7000 series X3D chips for MSFS.

If you can do it, 5800X3D would be worth it to you, based on what you have now (3800) on the AM4 platform.

I haven't checked 5800X3D prices, I imagine they are holding fairly strong still, but you may be able to find a used one for less.

Ryzen 5800X3D + Radeon 7900XT are probably the best budget upgrades for MSFS today.

Absolutely concur, it's what I did. 7900XT allows good enough performance in 4K Ultra and VR with medium-high settings.

MSFS2024 should bring performance improvements as well. All in all, should be enough to play for the next 2-3 years, perhaps up to AMD's AM6 platform.

I’m about to put a 4090 with a 7800x3d and 64gb RAM so this feedback excites me greatly. I went with 64GB which I know is overkill because of the forthcoming MS2024 and to ensure I have some element of future proofing as I typically find myself running a ton of additional applications at the same time as I run MSFS. 
 

If the 7800x3d is as good as I think it will be then I don’t plan to mess around with any overlocking and will just set and forget it (obviously I will make sure bios is updated)

7900x3d is a beast. Also much better for everyday productivity than the 7800x3d, this is why I choose it over the 7800x3d which has similar gaming perf to the 7900x3d.

It also has less 3D cache enabled cores which may or not be a restriction when MSFS 2024 comes along with potentially improved multicore support. It's one of the reasons why a lot of reviewers recommend either the 7800X3D or 7950X3D. All still great cpus in their own right though.

I've never seen any indication you will even get near using 32Gb.  Timings can be more critical the more ram installed.  Right now in PMDG 738 over the east coast:  10Gb in use.  Why 68gb?

I cant speak for Mikey, but computers sadly are not just used for MSFS 🙂

Ron

Cant say why he is excited however.

By the way, when I updated my Bios for the new CPU, my windows crapped out. (I hate computers)

I agree with this.

I upgraded from 3900X to 5900X to 5800X3D over the last few years.

The biggest leap in game/sim performance was from 5900X to 5800X3D, believe it or not. 

So I would say the 5800X3D is worth it if you're on AM4 and want a relatively cheap upgrade.

I am not too surprised...lots of times if you drop in a new cpu, you'll end up having to wipe and install the OS again...ugh...I know it's a hassle.

If you switch eg from a 3800 to a 5800x3d you won’t have to. 
A colleague even switched mainboard, cpu and Ram. Plugged it his old M2 SSD. Installed the new drivers and it’s running ever since.

So is the 7900x3d or 7800x3d best for MSFS?
