I'd wait 2 weeks when Ryzen is released unless your are committed into buying into Intel.

Good deal though and board did ok on oc3d.

wasn't this listed on here a couple of days ago?

I wish people would stop talking about Ryzen. AMD are notorious for not living upto expectation. So much so that a G4560 which costs £60 is better than every AMD processor currently in the market. AMD are embarrassing and with your logic people would be waiting all the time for something that's just coming out. Intel already pushed forward coffee lake 6-12 months, then cannonlake will be pushed forward too etc.

This is a great deal and Intel > AMD

It's out March 3rd, reviews are due Feb 28th. Benchmarks already show it's a decent product.

Why wouldn't you wait 2 weeks when you're investing in a system that could last you 2/3/4/5 years?

As for your Pentium comment, I won't comment lol.

You won't comment because you're noob with pcs I guess.

And please, for the love of god don't link me to any nonsense synthetic benchmarks of current AMD tripe. It's so bad it should be abolished from the market.

If it wasn't for AMD Intels pricing would be more inflated so if you had your wish the £60 Pentium you refer to would be £150 at least as they would have a monopoly and not need to compete at any price point.

If it wasn't for AMD, Intel probably wouldn't exist anymore. Read about how Intel is setup and how people are involved.

But I can still dislike AMD for their mostly poor products

It isn't about being an "Intel fanboi"

Intel have dominated the market for what, 8-10 years? Why? Because their products are reliable and the best.

AMD create sub-standard products which now their budget versions still can't compete with the G4560 now Intel have brought that out.

AMD CPU's are absolutely terrible for gaming, too.

We will see in a couple of weeks when you are wiping your Intel tears away

This board has been nothing but amazing. Shame the headset deal wasn't on when I brought it though I would sell them on or use them as backup headset.

I would have thought prices of Intel CPUs would be starting to see reductions to loosen purse strings at a time when the mantra is wait for Ryzen. Rather, Intel have put the price up of the G4560. A part that looked to be around £60 or a bit less, looks to be headed up toward £80 - it seems to be around the £72 (edit, gone down to £67 on Amazon, at the time of editing) mark, at the moment - presumably on the back of a lot of good reviews and consumer demand.

Anyway, I can't find a better deal on this one. Have some more heat.

I don't think Intel will budge

Their new processors will be out soon enough, and if they're priced right no need for the others to move.

Everything AMD is speculation and they've let people down before and will continue to do so I'm afraid.

**** ***t *** f***r

Well I just picked it up, for this price + the extras its a no brainer. £70 headet, £40 game, £20 cashback from MSI... absolute bargain if you ask me. I just need to get some new DDR4 RAM now

Thanks OP

not bad for what it comes with, think I paid about this for my asus strix z270f board

​This reminds me of the days when everyone said "bulldozer" would wipe the floor with Intel, but what did we get? A massive disappointment. Intel reigned supreme as always. Last I remember AMD being able to compete was with the old athlon 64s....

We never forget. You get what you pay for.

Intel in all my builds, thanks.

Oh and MSI are excellent. Used them specifically for years now (mobo and gpus) with no issues at all.

people bashing AMD: even if they're products aren't as good, they help keep Intel pricing in check. Bet you wouldn't be happy paying £450 for an i7 6700k now would you.

Ah the start of the pre-Ryzen intel price chop .. only i.d.i.o.t.s will fall for it ..

I thought the Phenoms where pretty decent right? (I owned a Phenom 2 1100T ).

As for MSI, I have had nothing but problems however, they did get resolved via the warrenty. Though Asus has always been the best for me though I would be paying more....

Argh this is such a good deal

It's a £70 headset, wouldn't be surprised if you could get £50. For Honor is about £40 and very new, literally came out a few days ago, easily sell it for £30. + the £20 cashback from MSI which you could claim in 30-60 days, you're looking at £100 back (+/- £20)

Anyone know what's the difference between this board and the PLUS version here? cclonline.com/pro…92/

Just ignore the braindead fanboy. Only a couple of weeks until the cat's out of the bag and you won't hear from them ever again.

A lot of money for a motherboard, unless you really really want For Honor and a crappy gaming headset.

I do. I want to play For Honor and I need a second headset that I can leave at work. I expect the headset to be comfortable but with terrible sound quality - which is fine for telcos at work. And to be fair, all "gaming" headsets sound terrible.

Same. Managed to get 32GB DDR4-2400 for £140, which I thought was quite good considering how much RAM has gone up in recent months. (I think I paid under £100 for 32GB DDR4 about 9 months ago).

Now just need to decide which CPU to go for. Might skip the Kaby Lakes and go for an i7-6700k...

That was pre-release. It now costs nearly 40 quid on there.

Typically price gouging happens for the first few weeks following a game's release yet people still say that pre-ordering is stupid.

My bad 25£ is for asian version atm. Greenman games sells it for 34£ cheapest I can find for now. Pre-orders not always pays off, depends on game mostly, some of them lose value so quick that in next few weeks you can have it for less then 20£
