Actually, I'd wanted a Ryzen 3 CPU even before the launch of that line of CPU. But, I was in Toronto when the CPU was launched, I realized that ordering online from e-tailers like Amazon would only result in disappointment as I'd be competing against basically the whole world. I tried Canada Computers and Lo and Behold! They had stock of the 3900X, I had to resort to using my niece's CC as they don't seem to accept foreign CC's. Regardless, I paid my niece the cost of the CPU and picked it up before I went back home to my home country.....and yes, it's alive and kicking!
