Hey Everyone!

I was having a browse at PC parts and I came across this on Ebuyer, personally I think this is a good set up for those who’re looking to build or upgrade a PC. Comes with a free 250GB SSD so can’t complain I guess!

May get voted cold but oh well 😄

P.S there’s also a deal like this for the 9900K that’s £619

Putting aside the fact that a Ryzen build would absolutely smash it to bits in terms of price/performance, the 9700K is available for £340 on its own from Aria and the motherboard for £155 from CCL. So you're just getting the SSD for a fiver, saving you around £35 in exchange for a generally overpriced setup (on a socket that will soon be dead when Comet Lake and LGA 1200 arrive).

So that 180fps instead of 160fps. That best case difference is worthless. Unless your getting paid to game, or by intel nobody cares. In most cases the difference isnt even worth being used as any form of performance metric. People really need to stop beleiving this comical junk intel spout. Its an insignificant difference even in the best case for intels best cpus. And they get completely slaughtered for everything else. Intels day is gone and in all honesty im actually worried they are so gone. AMD are going to be able to start jacking up prices soon (Zen2+/Zen3).


No, it isn't.

It's average case. In some games it is less than 10 percent, in some games it is more.

Does it matter if you only want 60FPS? No. Does it happen on a lower end GPU or at very high resolutions? No. It just matters in the CPU bound scenarios I outlined.

Look, I get it. You must hate intel and love AMD, or want to reassure yourself about a recent AMD purchase. That's ok, but don't question well tested, proven benchmark results.

Intel is still faster in gaming, by a decent measurable amount and better for the scenario I set up. Whether you care or not shouldn't get in the way of facts.

I'm assuming you still need to buy a cpu cooler or does the i7 come with one?

It is a base i7 - no cooler is included with this bundle.

seems like an excellent deal if you want a fast SSD for free?

The motherboard is £159.99- the cheapest i can find
The CPU is £340
the SSD is an NVME at £61.00

totals £561.00 unless you're seeing these cheaper elsewhere but i checked amazon nd aria, ebuyer and price spy.

also, although i agree that the Ryzen's are better multitaskers and have better ipc, this CPU is still faster in games and can overclock better.

A 3700x build would be cheaper and give superior multithreaded performance, but If you primarily use your PC for gaming, then the 9700k is still vastly superior to any Ryzen CPU.

"Vastly" seems a bit of a stretch.

10 percent stock, more overclocked in CPU bound scenarios i.e 1080p, 1440p with high end graphics.

It's fairly significant if you are after high frame rates for gaming, not very significant in other scenarios.

I bought a 3700x and slapped on a 2080 with a 144MHz panel, I'm more than happy with my gaming quality and performance. If I'd seen this whan I was looking to purchase maybe I would have gone Intel...maybe. This post is a deal wait a day and theres another then another and another and everyday their will be pros and cons.

It really didn't seeing as though it's only a month old. Your comment aged very badly. About a second after you posted it.
