scan.co.uk/pro…v=c not sure what happened but its in the today only section (which for scan seems to last a few days)
updated the link to the correct one

Seems a good deal. The Motherboard is excellent, Memory is Good, PSU is OK. Don't know much about the case.
Decent saving, basically makes the PSU and case free
Have some heat. CPU + SSD and you're away.

All deals are around the Ryzan build I need some intel goodness.
Don't forget you'll need a GPU if you're buying one of the Ryzen chips without one built in.

Intel don't do goodness anymore.
Hard to vote on this. Price seems okeish, but.... Probably not my choice of components(mb, ram and psu). Will leave without a vote.
works out at £349 on pcpartpicker for individual so tidy priced

what GPU would go ok with this monster?
In a price range wise...

Question is: what CPU you will use? My opinion, at least 1600.
Gpu, any you like. If getting x370 mb, you can even go with two GPUs.
Apparently the new ryzen 2200 is fairly decent at this price range.

I would highly advise running memtest on the memory when you start your build. It's advisable anyway but especially so when you are are dealing with corsair vengeance!
Good for a basic pc now and nothing else. X370 = end of life.
2400mhz ram = bad, as Ryzen performs much better with faster ram because of Infinity Fabric (and it also directly affects graphics performances on 2200G/2400G).
Corsair VS series = bad.
With 254 pounds you can have right now on the same website an Asrock AB350 Pro4, 8GB DDR4-3000, a 400W bequiet! SP9 and a Thermaltake H22 case now, which looks better value and performances to me even if you'll loose the Aorus motherboard's shiny leds.

I think that's a bit mean, this with a 2200G would still give a peppier £350 normal use + mid range gaming machine than any options we had a few weeks ago. X370 only got supplanted this week and was superior to B350. PSU is ample for this type of build
People going for a bundle like this are going for value, and here they don't get it... the spending is completely shifted towards the motherboard, leaving chips for the rest. The X370 board for example is not bad (besides Gigabyte Ryzen boards having now a reputation for being picky with memories), but isn't giving the average user who might be interested in the bundle anything more than a decent B350 board. Saving with a B350 and spending more on ram gives you immediately a +10% perfomances, and more if you overclock. Overclock gains in this bundle would still be limited because of the ram speed, which again is proved to be pretty important with Ryzen, especially the G serie. Finally, the psu wattage is high (uselessly high), but what you're not told is that the VS serie has known reliability problems: coil whine, sudden shutdowns and power loss are unluckily known problems here.
Would this board work with the new ryzens coming out ? any idea how much ram this board can take ?

yes it will.

Offically 64gb but it should do 128gb ..

The reason i posted this was because, it is value for money.. The worst component in the bundle for me is the case. Secondly not everyone will over clock.

I've seen poor bundles before and some that are more expensive than buying the same items separately. This is one case where that isn't true.

Yes the x470 boards are out from the 19th(and 26th) and yes there better psu's out there. But for the average person this is more than fine..

Like with nearly everything pc wise, your milliage and needs may and will vary
So if I get this with say a ryzen 3 2200g ( +ssd )would that be a good set up expand the ram later am I pretty much good to go ?

not sure what your needs are, but if you dont need the ryzen+ range (2000 series) then hold on for some nice deals on the 1700/x/1800x

Kinda. You can get the Mobo and Board for 176.99 and the PSU and Case for 79.96 so only a squid in it, and there's a load of other PSU/Casew combos. All under Today Only on the same linky

PS and LR, are not core hungry. I'd either look at the 2600 and a dedicated gfx card (photoshop does love gpus) or go for the 2400g and then upgrade next year (with the 2400g). The 1600 looks good too price wise ..

I'd look at a low to midrange dedicated gpu with as much vram as possible (for ps & lr)

Also the the 1700 maybe worth getting as that should sink to 200 shortly

Depends on your budget

Going with the 2400g with build in graphics cant afford the gfx card atm maybe in the future also need more ram so money will likely go into that first.

Excited with my first build so much choice out there its mind blowing appreciate the advice
