Has come down in price by about £6 since I bought one of these about a week ago, and that was the best price I could find at the time.

The guy selling the big issue locally has a 6 core and my cleaning lady uses an octo-core to plan her schedule so is this expensive due to the retro vibe!

LOL
You can't go wrong with a intel i-core, i am still rocking a I7 Haswell and i love these, cool, quiet and no matter what you throw at them they just laugh at it.
Intel killed this thanks to ryzen buying 4 cores is so short sighted tbh i just dont want people to have buyers remorse later on also 8400 beats it and is newer gen.
Ye not really a deal for me nobody should really be buying this chip, maybe an upgrade from an i5 but that's it. really you'd be looking at the stupid z370 rip-off platform that could easily be compatible with 100/200 series or ryzen also ryzen refresh or maybe called ryzen 2 its being touted as ryzen gen2 anyway it's out end of jan beginning of feb so i wouldn't be in a hurry to buy a quad with HT.
can't call this a deal maybe sub £200 MAYBE, and ye as been said the 8400 beats it even the i3's are quad cores now.

I'm shocked that these still sell and at these prices intel really have it sorted the prices never really drop for years but given the ryzen stuff and coffee lake rip-off they really have a nerve still asking this kind of money for a quad with HT on a platform they sank 9 months after release.

In all honest if you're building a new rig just pay the extra £80 and get a 8700K !

You would never buy this for a new build today. 8600K is just as fast and cheaper. I also don't think I would pay this to upgrade from anything like an i5 on the Z270 boards. Doesn't make sense.

If you want to upgrade from a Kaby Lake then sell what you got and buy the 8600K and a new board, or better yet the 8700K.
I would Highly Recommend the 8600k over this.
Bonkers to buy at this price. No sense and old tech thanks to AMD and competition.
I don't think I've ever paid more than £70 for a processor, I'm sure all these fancy pants i7s do great in benchmarks but I always find in reality the money is better spent on a graphics card. Or on...food or something.

My five year old amd socket fm2 processor manages most games on high @1080p. Probably coming up to an upgrade in a year or so

I have a Intel i5 750 socket 1156 Lynnfield chip 2.6ghz is it worth upgrading now or wait until next year is there anything worth waiting for and would I see a lot of difference in desktop use for multitasking and photo editing.

I was also thinking of going for the 8700k as I dont want to upgrade for a long long time and maybe gaming later on

any help thanks

Use commas, much?
Wouldn't spend that much on a last gen processor. Go with 8th gen Intel or ryzen

You've certainly made that i5 750 last, mine is sat in a cupboard with a Radeon 5850

How does the rest of the specification look, presumably you've already installed an SSD? Fairly certain you're using SATA II / USB 2 ports which are very slow by modern standards.

You need to factor in the cost of 8-16gb of DDR4 when you upgrade as your RAM is not compatible with modern motherboards, unfortunately prices are pretty grim at the moment.

As with everyone else; I would not advise buying a 7700k with the 8400 and 8600k out, but if you have don't forget to claim your free games (assuming you have bought from an approved source)

I mean, you can get the 8700k and be grand. It is a great chip, a bit spendy in the value prop... The 8400 is the king of value.

If you don't have an SSD.... That is step number 1.
This is a bad deal considering the 8700k is on amazon for 350
This is a bad deal, sorry OP.
Why did this BAD deal get 340 degrees?

I'm in a similar situation, I've got an Intel 860. looking to upgrade. I was looking at the x99 platform but it seems a bit dated now compared to the 8700k.
