3600 - £170
B450 - £120
16GB RAM - £80 (3600MHz 18CL/3200MHz 16CL)
RX 5600 XT - £250
PSU - £70
Case - £50
1TB SSD - £90

Total £830 => 170 remaining to upgrade whatever you think I selected/priced unreasonably. Even if you gave £170 for labour, what I listed is much better than OPs.
How can they sell a "Gaming" PC with 8GB Ram, the laptop I use for work has more than that.

I'm ordering a new pc tomorrow. I hope you don't mind me asking but which of these two do you think would be better for gaming? The i7 is an f and £30 more

I think both are pretty similar in performance and they'd trade blows for different applications. I'd personally go with the 3700x based on the price difference.

Thanks
Appreciate it
Would ram speed make any difference at all?

The 3200 on the 3700x system should be fine. They will be about even for gaming but 3700x far superior for everything else.

Definitely go with the 3700x system, faster ram and the amd platform is great recently and leaves room for future upgrades. Plus its cheaper

It used to matter a lot for Ryzen gen 2. Faster doesn't mean better, there are certain sweet spots for your respective components. Some motherboards may not even handle it. I think the general rule of thumb is get low CAS 3600MHz, (e.g. 3600MHz CL15) but that's usually expensive. 3600MHz CL18 is the same as 3200MHz CL16 in terms of latency, but one would be better than the other depending on use case. I doubt you'd notice it much tbh, but this might give some insight imgur.com/a/Z…YHg.

I'd just get whatever's reasonably priced but also popular. The LPX series you mentioned are both cheap and popular.
On principal only... Never buy a pre built born to fail pc from any major retailer.... Pay for a local to do it....
Thanks guys

In terms of warranty it's actually better to go through the retailer. You shouldn't need to deal with the manufacturer if there's a legitimate fault regardless of what they say. I'm not convinced it'd even be much cheaper if you got a local to do it because some I've seen some local PC shops and they charge RRP despite things not even going for RRP elsewhere.
Voted cold. Overpriced and also as it's Currys. I'd not buy a mouse mat from them sharks!
LOL
How is this a deal? Jeez.. Very overpriced.
Sorry but AMD Ryzen all the way.

INTEL kept processor prices sky high until AMD caught up.

VOTED cold on principle.
IMAGINE bying a pc at currys hahahahaa
