The 3400G is about £30 more. Would that be a better option?
Hope the 3600G is released soon

The 3400G is weaker but is a APU so has integrated graphics which the 2600 doesn't include.

If your using a dedicated GPU the Ryzen 5 2600 is a better choice as there's no point paying for a graphics chip on your CPU which you have no plans to use.

My bad. Mistaken this as the 2600G. I am on the lookout for a APU
I think the last comment in the last deal summed it up, wait for black Friday folks!
Referenced price is a joke. This CPU ist somewhere around 120 - 115 for the past 3 months.
As a reference, from memory with codes this has only ever gone to to £99 at the absolute lowest, so this is a pretty good price.
Ok hi there
looking for help finding a built gameing pc for under 1K
Also should i wait for Black friday ?
kinda prefer Intel rather than AMD. and was hopeing for a 2060 RTX ? graphics card
and with windows installed ?

Thanks for any help

AMD offers the better value atm imo. You can definitely get intel/nvidia in this price range by saving in areas.
I mean don't close yourself from looking at all options.

I don't know which pre built companies are the best so maybe take a browse through this section on here and read through the comments to see what more knowledgeable folks say about them.

Check out pcpartpicker.co.uk. Excellent for building a system.

As Le Meep said I would be more open to AMD options for CPU. Any money you save can go on a better graphics card. If you can get an i5 9600 with a fam for close to the ryzen 5 3600 (around £170-£180) then fine. They both perform about the same in current games.
One thing I would consider though is the Intel 6 thread v Ryzen 12 thread. It makes little to no difference at the moment, but it seems the new consoles coming out next year will be highly threaded. That means games publishers will likely get more out of the number of threads on offer in future games and this may hamper the lower thread Intel cpus moving forward. I say “may” as it’s only my guess. I may be completely wrong.

I have a ryzen 1500x and a vega 64, should I upgrade or just buy a cooler so I can oc more
Just upgraded my pc with 2600x and 5700 and OMG.

My fps in games just seems lower than it should be considering I'm still gaming at 1080p but I'm planning on buying a 1440p monitor soon, I know some games are cpu intensive or just not well optimised.

There's an easy way to check. Drop the resolution and see if that fixes your minimum frame rates . If that solves the problem, then you're GPU bound. If it doesn't solve the problem, then you're more than likely CPU bound and limited by single thread performance. In that case, I'd recommend the 3000 series. Faster memory can also improve performance under CPU bound scenarios.

Is there much overclocking headroom in the 1500X?

4.1ghz is the highest I got it to stable but because I have the stock heatsink the temps go above the recommended 75c, so I just keep it at the 3.9, ram is rated at 2667mhz

If that's the case with your memory speed and it's far shy of 3200Mhz, then I definitely wouldn't waste your time with the 2000 series. Improvements to IPC were fairly marginal. It was only with the 3000 series that the IPC improvements were significant and less dependent on memory performance.

The 3600 seems the best bang-per-buck right now.

You could attempt overclocking your RAM of course. If it were me I'd hunt around online and see if anyone has had success with your particular RAM model. If they have heatsinks there may be some breathing room.

Just wanna say that the Ballistix Sport LT 3000 / CL15 or 3200 / CL16 RAM kits (have AES in the product code) overclock extremely well with Ryzen. Got my 3000 / CL 15 up to 3733 CL16 / 16 / 18 / 16 / 38 or something similar. Got it for £73 as well (2 x 8GB).

Well thank you.
I did walk in to Sainsbury’s once and just as I arrived in the store an announcement was made over the tannoy “iceburg lettuce, just arrived in store ....” I was so chuffed ?
That’s a true story !
