Think I might wait and see if there's a 5700 or Intel induced price drop in the next couple months, or at least around CES, tempted though

Can't even decide if it's worth upgrading my 3700x

I'm rocking a 1600AF (Rebadged 2600 apparently), 4GHz all-core without straining much thermally, couple more cores and a big IPC and clock boost will serve me well but atm the £150 effective premium for Zen3 parts in the UK and low availability of the 8-core makes it hard to me to justify jumping on straight away.

For me, it’s not. I game at 1440p and at most it’s around MAX 30 fps, which is a fare scenario. Most common it’s around 10 fps more for either the 5600X or 5900X.

Not worth it, unless you do heavy multithreaded workloads, which I personally don’t. So I’ll just keep my 3700X.

no real point in upgrading unless your on a far older CPU I'm on a Ryzen 1700 won't be upgrading until maybe 2025 CPU's generally have good legs on them

Your 3700x has plenty of life left in it yet

No point in upgrading to a dead platform. Mine as well wait for DDR5. You'll need a new CPU, memory, and board after Zen 3 anyway. Sticking with what you got now is more than enough more than likely.
