Hopefully Amazon will price match this


Why not just order this? Aria PC are reputable, I've never had any issues with them.

When all the other businesses have died because of Amazon they won't have to price match anymore...

Don't just support one business
Great find op!, £2 less then the deal i posted yesterday Ebay/CCL.......

message to the above person, how is this weak for gaming?....... when it was on par with the 3600in price then that were the CPU to go for "gaming" however these extra cores will play a massive part for workstation folks who also like to game so it was always mentioned for their purpose and now the price is down for this fantastic CPU, £30 more then the 2600x and the 2700x nails that in gaming,......its always advice able for someone within a budget to get a 2600x over a 3600 if it means they can afford a better GPU, now this is £20 cheaper then some 3600 and £20 could make someone get that little edge on the GPU still.. and that same rule applies compared to the 3700x....... which is £130 extra

2700x + 5700xt Sapphire = £470
3700x + 1660S Palit = £463
2600x + 5700xt Giga = £478 *slight higher XT version, however the CPU of the 2700x will be a better benefit.
3600x + 5700 Sapphire = £470
3600 Pointless for stock users when its £13 extra for the 3600x

Winner? 2700x with the sapphire..... 2nd place 2600x

just because there is Better CPU higher for Gaming does not always means ITS the best for Someones personal gaming budget.... GPU OVER CPU..

ovs a 3700x with an XT will beat all.. but lets talk about budgets for a change.... seeing as this is a website for information for people seeking the best deals and some advice.

Yup. Its a beast of an all round budget processor. If you're buying this then most likely you'll be gaming at more than 1080p in which case the difference in frame rates is very negligible. I'm on ultrawide and it's amazing coupled with a 5700xt

Bobo's comment could certainly have been expanded upon but I see their point with AMD's marketing banging on about "more time gaming" and "RGB lighting". I too would hope most people wouldn't buy a 2700X if their aim is best FPS in games but there are so many chips to choose from (and chip deals on here) and not everyone is CPU savvy.

Please point us to better thing for the money then

I can see where you are coming from but at given price point you can't find anything better maybe except for r5 3500x from aliexpress. 2700x combined with vega 56/64/ rx 5700 or GTX 1660 super gives you this sweetspot without breaking the bank

Customer service advised me to return old one and order new one which was discounted by £20 at the time, I returned new one when arrived. Stupid really as they cover the p&p, would cost them less if just refunded the difference in the first place..

I have seen many gaming machines that come with ryzen 5. I assumed a ryzen would be even better? Are the ryzen 5 better for games? Very out of date on cpus for gaming.
Unless you're playing at low resolutions, your games will be GPU limited... unless you're trying to run 240fps at 720p, I wouldn't worry about it.

It’s not VERY weak at all. It’s a hugely rounded 8c/16t CPU for under £150.
Unless you are seeking out every frame whilst using a 144Hz or greater monitor and running something like a 2080Ti then it’ll be fine.
Does Intel hold the outright gaming crown on the charts, yes it does. Though that is an outlier that doesn’t mimic reality. Not everyone socket games. For streamers this will easily widdle on Intels bed.

It's a bit of a minefield, there are so many chips out and new ones keep on coming. Ryzen 7 is not bad for games but, assuming someone is working to a budget (most of us don't have unlimited funds) then an 8 core 16 thread CPU is not the best value if gaming is your primary goal e.g. you could opt for a cheaper 4 (or 6) core CPU and get same/similar FPS plus save money... or 'skew' the budget by spending less on the CPU and more on the GPU to get better FPS for the same budget e.g. IMHO current best value for money budget gaming CPU is i3-9100F ('F' has no built-in gfx so you need a gfx card but you are almost certainly going to have/get one for gaming anyway) at £70 (half the price of 2700X) and approx the same FPS in games. The 4 core i3 is still going to be able to be to do all the other stuff you do on your PC too. However, more cores and more threads are a definite plus for productivity/workstation use especially if "time is money." It all depends on your usage and budget. Ryzen 5 2600 is a good all rounder (6 cores, 12 threads, similar gaming performance to 2700X but cheaper,)

On a singular case basis it doesn't make sense but they have order and return procedures which work on a large scale basis - if every order and return was handled differnt to the procedure then I guess it could be chaos for them, that's my guess anyway.
I keep going between a 2000 or a 3000 series, I take it this is a decent cpu that will last for a few years? I don’t really game on my PC but my i7 860 is getting a bit long in the tooth now (think I’ve had it 10 years), it’s paired with 16Gb DDR3-1333 and a GeForce GTX 750Ti. Figured it was about time for a new build, already bought a MSI B450 Tomahawk Max board for a start

Can't see that at all. I have a very old FX8350 paired with a 3GB 1050ti card and it holds up well in today's gameplay. GTA5 looks awesome and runs great, even the very old ghost reacon advance warfighter still looks impressive to this day on high settings.

Wouldn't recommend a quad core in 2019/2020 for games. 6 core should be a minimum, tech spot did a comparison of a r5 1600 and i5 7600k and the 6 core came off much better in newer games.
I think the r5 3600 is the one most sites recommend as the go to cpu

Lucky you, Aria are a shocking company and Amazon blow them out of the water for customer service.

The 1600 and 7600k are both 2 year old chips - I don't recommend either of them. The R5 3600 is £100 more than i3-9100F with very similar gaming FPS so someone could save £100 or spend it elsewhere on the system which is why I recommend it as the best current value for money for (budget) gaming. If a budget allows a better CPU and a better GPU then yes, absolutely get better. I don't know how much difference having 4, 6, 8 cores and 4, 8, 12, 16 etc. threads will make for gaming next year, might be a lot, might be very little, but having a better GPU definitely makes a big difference.

(Edit: I missed out "budget" before gaming so have added it in brackets)

The i3 really isn't a comparison to this. Yes, it might have similar gaming preformance, but this thrashes it in everything else. If you're looking for a budget build then the limiting factor is going to be the gpu every time. Spending an extra £70 here gets you a massively improved cpu which will handle anything for ages to come.

In pc terms this is about the best value you can get in price to performance.

Complete and utter nonsense. I had one paired with a 1080 Ti and a 1440p/144Hz monitor and it was a wonderful gaming experience. The GPU was the bottleneck 99.9% of the time in any game where you'd expect it to be, so having a better CPU wouldn't have helped at all. And the 1080 Ti is to this day still about the third-most powerful consumer graphics card on the market when overclocked. Even if you step down to 1080p and pair it with a 2080 Ti (if you're an idiot, basically), the fact that it doesn't keep up with a 9900K overclocked to 5GHz doesn't make it "weak" in any way. There are still a hell of a lot of CPUs that this would outperform, many of which still cost more than this.

I guess you guys need to justify your Intel purchase and the water chiller you bought to cool it somehow though, right?

The 7600k is also a 4 core 4 thread cpu, seeing Intels naming is weird these days it may well be the same chip.
For budget gaming you'd be better off getting one of the ryzen apu then you get a reasonable graphics solution built in.

I totally agree there are some really great value chips with reasonable built in gfx ability if budget does not extend to a gfx card.

I'm not slating the 3600, it's a good chip. All I;m saying is in context of gaming 9100F is IMHO a much better value for money new CPU because £100 more of the budget can go on the GPU. If budget allows a better CPU without compromising on GPU then that's even better of course.
Or if its a new build you can get a motherboard bundle deal for cheaper.

Yeah it should be
You are still better off buying this from CCL on Ebay but clicking through to Ebay via Topcashback to get another 5% off the price in cashback and using the code POPSALE on check out to bring the price down to £149.40
Topcashback will get you another £7.50p off the price
plus you'll get 175 Nectar points which would equate to a cash value of another 87p
So £149.40 - £7.50p - 87p = a total cost of £141.03 vs £149.99 buying it at Aria as their price has now gone up
Plus the 2700x processor is eligible for the AMD promotion to get to claim either Borderlands 3 or The Outer Worlds games
and get 3-months of Xbox Game Pass for PC
The POPSALE 15% off code on Ebay finishes today the 23rd so don't delay

Actually @johnw84 100% my bad on the price comparison; yes it's more like £75 not £100, sorry, I was getting mixed up with the other comparison here to the R5 3600 (with @Mpt11)
Don't no shall i go for 3600 or this one 8 cores is the future looks like but 3600 is so good for the money
