We should thank AMD and their Ryzen CPUs everyday. Without Ryzen, Threadripper and Epyc processors (which are finally very good BTW) we would never get such prices from Intel...

Got this for £260 a week ago from Aria PC... good price but you can grab some steals if you wait.

The other side of that coin is that Intel could only charge what they liked for 10 years or so due to a lack of any serious competition from AMD.
Without Intel we'd have been stuck with much lower performance for a decade.
Anyway, good to see AMD back.

What do you mean? £280 for a last generation i7 is still bloody stupid.

I grabbed a 4790k for £230 a week after it came out. You have nothing to be thankful for, these prices are still giving us all a good shafting.

I’d really recommend watching some videos by JayzTwoCents on YouTube. There’s others like Bitwit and Linus, but I personally think Jay explains things the best, even the basics. And he’s got loads of content too
Better off getting an 8600k at this point if motherboard isn't a concern. 6C/6T will beat 4C/8T in games that scale with cores/threads and you're only giving up 100-200Mhz at the top overclocking range.

I'd actually hold off just a tad and wait for cheaper Coffee Lake boards, plus Zen+(Ryzen 2) is coming very soon.

£230 for a 4790k is an amazing deal, though. Not fair to use bargain prices to compare as standard.

As it is, CPU's still aren't that expensive for something that you can easily get 5+ years out of.

No no, that was a "reasonably hot" deal on here, not a scorcher. Going by the temperature of this, a "reasonably hot" deal, I'd say it's pretty comparable.

I take your point I guess, I'm using the same 4790k I bought back then and it still kills it. No need to upgrade at all.
Keep an eye on Intel chips, i expect prices to go into Meltdown soon.

Paid £235 for a new 6700k nearly 2 years ago. Prices are inflated but they are definitely dropping gradually, the worst being RAM but I think it will ease later this year.
Not voting but it's only €294 on Amazon.es which using a free free card is less than £262, and about £4 delivery, it's the risk version so you get the standard Intel warranty of three years.

So technically cold, but some people prefer convenience over cost.

Dude check YouTube for jay2cents and LinusTechTips they have videos for ALL the FAQ.
Reddit is the main source for group opinions and direct answers for in deep replys from hardware Enthusiasts
Facebook is noe an options too with some gaming and hardware tips groups .
You can also pm me at some point. I'm myself an overclocking enthusiast and enjoy putting together components. This past year I built about 5 pc's and discussed 100's other builds.
Before you or anyone post or ask anyone about a build is first thinking and having this questions answered:
-Do you have a Intel/AMD or NVidia/AMD preference?
-Are you going to overclock?
-What are your MAIN uses for the PC?
-What is your budget with/without other components? (mouse/keyboard/monitor/speakers/Headsets/chair/etc)
-Case size? (ATX/mini/etc)

Sorry for the offtopic =p
How is this a deal?
This is pretty much standard price

uk.pcpartpicker.com is a good tool to help you select and find things at good prices.

Watch some videos, and as someone else said, make some decisions about a few things.

I'd recommend against building a 'small' form factor as they tend to offer unique challenges that make first time building harder.

You may have to flash your bios to do it.

Consider buying an 8400 and a new motherboard. It's going to cost you about the same as this processor (95 for motherboard, 200 for CPU).

As you have a 6400, you should already have DDR4.
Bad deal the 7740x was £200 and a bad deal due to board prices this should be under £200 anybody buying a quad for £200+ needs the head checked.

An i3 8350k should reach 5ghz that's 4/4 can get for around £150, an 8400 btr chip, 8600k btr chip, 1600/x, 1700/x really with all the options a last gen 7700k that may reach 5ghz for £284 is not a gd one just because it drops a few quid doesn't make it a deal.

the 8350k will get you 5ghz for £125 quid less, sure you loose the hyperthreading but 4 true cores at 5ghz will give you no issues, it's effectively a 7600k with more cache a btr chance of hitting 5ghz and about £50 cheaper than the last gen i5 prices lol, so many options but unless it's below £200 this chip is a no-no, even at £200 you may indeed be btr with the 8400, there no reason at all to buy this chip at this price point.

Come on people this is hotukdeals plz.

Thanks I have ddr4 2133 mhz I think I can't have more than that. My usage normally needs ram so if there is any affordable upgrade I'm happy to do it. When I do photo and video editing I could see my processor being used upto 95-99 percent and ram about 75-80 percent

My advice is don't listen to a word anyone on HUKD tells you. If a 7700k at nearly three hundred quid is considered a deal in 2018 then we cannot be trusted.
Good price for this part, but as others suggest probably better value options to consider at this point.

Just hope they don't repeat past mistakes and fail to keep the innovations coming. No more one trick ponies they need to keep up the pace and not take the foot off the peddle. Deffo dont want to go back to Intel having a monopoly again.

Ok thanks mate, it all seems a bit daunting atm!
Your better off with an 8600k for £235 which out the box is comparable to the 7700k but can OC to 5ghz so wipes the floor with the i7. I’m assuming it’s for gaming so that’s more then sufficient but then again you’ll need a Z370 board....swings and roundabouts depending on how much you want to spend...

You are very right. Intel was ripping us of for a very long time but it was not only because AMD was releasing inferior products. Chipzilla was "kind of helping" them to stay behind.

These are just first 3 links from google search... you can imagine the scale of the problem by looking at all of them. Putting it simply this was not a fair game.
Eh, personally I'd recommend the 8000 series which adds to the core count over previous years (both i5 and i7 are good performance options), or support ryzen where you can spend less on a motherboard, has good price to performance, and supports multiple processor architectures on the same socket. Though Ryzen 2 is coming Q1 too which is something to bear in mind.

Ryzen2 will use the same socket I thought? With this you'd need a new motherboard to upgrade.
