+£369.99 is without VAT

If you do the math, its actually £444 for 3900x

And as mentioned you need to add VAT to the 370 price.

do you think its still worth it?

I think the B450 with the 3700 Ryzen for £400 is the best value to be honest, and more than adequate for 99% of us gamers/casual users. The 3900x is overpriced quite rightly because it's AMDs top spec product.

the 3900x is using two dies, and its only currently the top spec am4 product. the 3950x will swiftly change that. Regarding its price compared to the competition it isn't over priced. If you see the product overpriced, given what i said, then it it isn't for you ..

It's overpriced compared to the rest of the AMD 3000 series product. It goes without saying the entire AMD line is cheaper than the equivalent Intel product line. The 3900 is great for work video editing and 3D rendering. These utilise the multiple threads. Or for somebody who needs it because they need to have the "best". For 99% of us, the 3700 is more than enough.

Again, I don't dispute that it shouldn't be the price that it is. For those that need it, it's worth buying compared to Intel. And those that want the best, they will pay whatever it costs.

What about the X470? Is it worth taking that jump if only to future proof?

Harder to answer.
Neither B450 or X470 will have PCI 4.0 , which when you upgrade in 5+ years is going to be more relevant than today.

The consensus through multiple Reddit threads is to go MSI B450 (tomahawk or gaming carbon AC) with a 3700. The very marginal gains from the higher spec motherboards could be worthwhile with the 3900.
To be aware that the BIOS of the B450 is only 16Mb (it's User Interface is stripped down to accommodate within 16Mb and you'll have to flash the bios yourself but it's super simple and just a few minutes work - have a look at YouTube for this).

PCI 4 Motherboards will be much cheaper in the future and so my opinion is not to future proof now but enjoy your savings and buy a future motherboard with PCI 4 when you next upgrade a long time in the future.

At that time there will already be PCI 5.0 and DDR5. It has already been discussed that PCI 4.0 will be a very short-lived standard.

Plus, AM5 will take place over AM4 in 2021.

Depends on when you plan to upgrade next - you can't ever really "future proof". DDR5 could come on the 5000 series, but thats 2 years away and we don't know if they will just do an am4+ or go for an am5 socket. The 5000 series, could have both ddr4 and ddr5 controllers, Im personally in favour of a bigger socket but that hasn't been in AMDs thinking. MCM designs; either via chiplets or 3d stacking - or even a combination of both is more suited to physically a bigger socket.

Pcie 4 products will work in pcie 3 slots and with ram, they will be in high availability till '22-23 at least. This times AMD controlling new tech, and they are far more forgiving to consumers than Intel has ever been. Intel has a new socket coming next year.

Ok so forgetting upgrades is there any performance benefit, if I'm going with a 3700?
theres a performance benefit from a 1800x and 2700x to a 3700x. I'd get a reasonably decent x470 for the 3700x if i was budgeting as that will(should) complete the am4 cycle.
I'm not sure their site is working correctly. The base motherboard in your example is £169 inclusive of VAT - the "no CPU" option. Adding the Ryzen 9 3900x should add £369.99 inclusive of VAT, bringing the expected total to £538.99. The actual price displayed and taken through to checkout is £612.98. This makes the 3900x £443.98, which is still a saving over their £479.99 standard price, but not quite the £369.99 they list.

The same incorrect pricing is true for the other CPUs.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X 12 Core TR4 is £241 at Ebuyer:

Slower than the 3900x by maybe 20% on average plus the motherboards are expensive.
But if you want a platform that scales beyond 16C with the extra features of TR4 this is a ridiculously cheap entry point.

Great price, tempting. Are they many air coolers for the treadrippers?

No idea. The boards start at £225 so not so bad.
