5700x is the winner, because it has the same 5800x's efficiency, but that one, 5700x, is cheaper e less hotter.

5700x, you get about 95% of the 5800x with near 40% less power consumption and less heat, so the cooler is quieter too. You are not going to notice the difference in 5% of efficiency but you will in your system trying to cool down the CPU that runs 10-15 degrees hotter.

Definitely 5700x makes more sense to get.
