Is it worth the extra £38 on this for the few mhz you get over the 3700x?
Imagine in a year or two these will be as cheap as chips but all you need for the next 5 plus years.

3700X and 3800X have the same amount of cores.

Very good question, will depend on your use case and experience. Out of the box the 3800X is slightly quicker and doesn't require too much, if any, tweaking so if you are after the 'best' plug and play cpu in this price bracket I would say it's potentially worth the price difference (£36 on Amazon I believe). For me personally it isn't worth the extra, same as with the 2600/2600X and the 3600/3600X. You are paying for a pre-overclocked part, if you don't mind spending an hour or 2 in the BIOS you can easily get the 3700X to match a stock 3800X if not outperform it with very little effort. With all the tutorials and knowledge out there it's so easy these days and the risks are so low, I remember when overclocking was a a dark art, a hushed whisper, a forbidden magic, BRING BACK THOSE DAYS!

But seriously if you ever need any help with parts or overclocking etc drop me a message

Look at the 1800X now! I've seen that sub £180 a few times recently and it's still popular

It's only worth paying more if you want a decent boost and you hook this up with a good aftermarket cooler. Preferably an AIO (liquid cooler).
The 3800x has a higher boost on books and a higher TDP 105w compared against 3700x.
Personal I would pay the slight extra and get this as I would be liquid cooling it and hence utilise the extra TDP headroom for overclocking.
So if you are looking for good overclocking and want good chances to win the silicon lottery go for this.
I'm thinking about getting this CPU for my first build.
The build is focused on photo and video editing and some occasional gaming, I have a RTX 2060S and 24GB 3600 ram at the moment. Do you recommend spending a little bit more for the 3900 or will this be more than enough for my needs? Will I even notice a big difference?

Once you start overclocking those TPD's go straight out the window, both will pull the same amount at the same clocks (within 1% variation, ambient temperature, silicon lottery etc.) same with the 3600/3600X. For example the only reason the 3600X is rated 95W not 65W like the 3600 is that it ships with a better cooler out of the box which eliminates the potential thermal throttling of the 3600 with stock cooler. Put a decent cooler or water block on a 3600 and you've basically got yourself a 3600X.

You don't have any "extra TDP headroom" with the 3800X I'm not quite sure what you mean? Think you might have slightly misunderstood what TDP means when it's printed on the box of unlocked processors?

I'd save on the 3800X and get a better cooler, maybe better ram, it's worth getting Micron E-Die if you can for Ryzen, ironically I got it when it was quite a bit cheaper than other ram out there but people have now cottoned on. If you are comfortable overclocking I'd think the 3700X is the obvious choice, just my 2 cents, peace

Get what you can afford, I'd say. The more cores the better for productivity.

You are likely to get a little bit extra OC headroom depending on your luck, for example siliconlottery.com/ results from the pre-overclocked CPUs they sell are:

For Photo/Video editing I'd recommend the 3900X for the extra cores and threads, you could always pick up a 3700X/3800X then a 3900X in a year or 2 when they come down but right now for future proofing yourself I'd say just go for the 3900X, it's not the best at gaming but it chews through anything else you throw at it with ease, please see below:
