can anyone explain to me why you would buy this over the cheaper Ryzen 3-1200 OC'd?

i think the only reason is if you don't want to overclock the 1200 (lack of confidence/expertise). So therefore the 1300X is just an overclocked 1200 out the box. That's my understanding.

Anyone know the Best priced 1070 and 1070ti at the moment?

This a decent upgrade to replace a 1100t? If not can anyone recommend a cpu and mobo cheers

The X effectively gives you the guaranteed overclock. The chips are binned and the best ones are used. With a non X you may be able to achieve the same overclock but if you loose the silicone lottery you may not. Also the overclock may require more voltage.

all that may be true but by what i've seen and read about Ryzen, they tend to be pretty good overclockers, and a 1200 should OC to a 1300x with no problem

based on that, personally, I'd say a 1200 is a better deal

and if all you are doing is gaming, a G4560 will be better value

That surely depends on the game. In a lot of recent games struggle quite a bit with the G4560. The latest Assassin's Creed for instance:

yes they will probably trade blows dependent on the game, but its at least 30% cheaper (than a 1300x) and offers comparable (and often better) performance for games which rely on fewer stronger cores

Jayztwocents did a good comparison here

(he originally did x4 960K vs G4560 but in this 2nd part put a ryzen 3 in and redid the tests)

This is quite accurate. If you are on a real budget, the G4560 will smoke all of these in perf/value.

The i3 8100 comes in at nearly identical price points as the 1300x and beats it at most games, but requires a slightly more expensive motherboard at the moment. So at the moment, it isn't a clear victory for either chip.

Once cheaper motherboard options are available on the Intel side, we can expect the 1200/1300x to fall in line price wise (or be ignored). They both are 4 core chips.

It's not just the 8th gen motherboards that aren't available. It's the 8th gen CPUs too.

These are still a tad overpriced as is the 1400/ 1500x/ 1800x and when comparing them to the g4560 which is overpriced due to popularity and the 8100 which you can't get, the 1200 is the btr option.

1800x = £23.56 per thread = £377
1700 = £15.75 per thread = £252
1700x = £17.18 per thread = £275
1600 = £14.83 per thread = £178
1600x = £18.08 per thread = £217
1500x = £19.97 per thread = £159
1400 = £17.25 per thread = £138
1300x = £27.50 per thread = £110
1200 = £23.25 per thread = £93

It's pretty clear some are overpriced compared to there brothers, 1st place - 1600 followed by the 1700 followed by the 1700x, it's hard to buy ryzen 3 on price per thread basis and since they all clock within 100 MHz or so.
the 1500x is the biggest disappointment being 8 threads that could have been the best seller at £15 per thread over 8 threads = £120 it would have beaten all i5 sales took a bunch of £100 i3 sales away from intel, really a strange choice by amd here. the 1200 really should be down price wise with the g4560 at £18 per thread that's £72 for a 1200 then it competes a lot better, the 1300x at £20 per thread is a tad overpriced per thread but £80 for the chip is a btr bargin, amd have some options here, but they btr get on it soon.
