This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Another option on the Strix B550-F here, this time on the Wi-fi model. It comes with a free Strix mouse and £25 cashback from ASUS. Other places are running this, but if you wanted the 12 months Bullguard security on upto 3 PCs as an added extra, then you may as well go via Box

It's a very exciting time to be a PC gamer at the moment. With new AMD chips on the way and hopefully the RTX 3080 reviews dropping very soon (NDA is today, so maybe later) Then we'll know if they're worth the upgrade. Now... where are those 3700x price drops at?

Mouse is worth £35 so you could probably make £25+ selling it if you don't need it. The Wifi free version of this is £15 cheaper if you're only going to be using an ethernet connection.

This board has Asus' Bios flashback utility, so if you're buying this for the new AMD CPUs which are looking very likely to launch next month, you can update the bios to support them without a CPU installed

I actually posted the non wifi version yesterday, I may pick it up myself as well as a 3700x IF they prices come down on them again. Then wait for the new gen to release, see how they stack up and make a decision on whether or not to jump on board. Got high hopes for them, but we'll see
I think b550 etc still quote high priced. I got b450 asus gaming plus off amazon 72 or 78 I think. Just keep it like 6 months then sell it when prices come down plus I needed a new pc at the time couldn't wait any longer for zen 3
Is there a good recommendation for an Intel based CPU and board, I'm looking to upgrade my x58 Asus gene 3 board. Not much into gaming but I do process videos here so good graphics card would help.
hmmm this or the MSI b550 Gaming carbon (after cashback with the 3700x)? think the MSI is slightly cheaper after the cashback and the steam credit

Well.... If you're not into gaming, the price and performance wise your recommendation from me is... AMD Ryzen, or Threadripper depending on how intense you video work is.

Amazon still cheaper Amazon still cheaper https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B089HFNQ1K/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1


No mouse included there, sadly

£184.99 on OCUK. Free mouse, free 250GB SSD and you can still claim the £25 cash back.
