This seems like a particularly great deal. What's up with it?


Maybe people think its Gigabyte/Scan and they avoid the brand at all cost or RAM is too slow 2400MHz for basic/gaming/productivity uses or the RAM is 8GB and people want 16GB for the price? It's around £80 cheaper than buying them separately but only if you want these products.

What can I say?! Thats just the current state of the market

I wanted an AMD Vega64 GPU and this deal is CURRENTLY the best price with availability, so I bit the bullet & made the decision to make the purchase.

btw - prices now back up to £949.

Eitherway, one can look at it as I saved £200 or paid over the odds by £200. (I do not believe it was ever available for less than £550)

Whatever the case may be, we all form part of the market and are affected by its prevailing conditions, I am no exception, therefore if one has a requirement for a product with a supply shortage that is in high demand ,then naturally one has to pay in accordance to the CURRENT market value.

For those who can wait, go ahead. The way I see it, the crypto craze is real, its here to stay and I do not see prices fall within the next quarter, if not the next 6 months, and that is despite of the rumours around Nvidia's new Ampere GPU's impending launch & release.

Need a pc for work (I'm only answering emails/book keeping!) but would like to be able to upgrade later for gaming (when prices drop). Is this a good option for me? I haven't taken the plunge and bought any components yet so any recommended compatible parts would be helpful!


You can't go wrong with choosing AMD's AM4 platform, as AM4 motherboards (which are comparatively cheaper than Intel's) are compatible with this or any of AMD's Ryzen CPUs, including Ryzen+ 2000-series coming in April, and will last a gen even after that at least. So once you plumb for AM4, it's a question of whether you want to go super cheap but performant and then upgrade to a new CPU or GPU later with the 2200G, or spend quite a lot more money on a separate CPU (Ryzen 1600) along with a dGPU to go with it (cheaper options like RX 560 or GTX 1050 Ti) which have quite a bit more performance and will be ok to get by 1080p gaming at lower settings.
Surely anyone serious about playing 1080p games on high/ultra settings knows that a £89 APU isn't going to cut it. What does make sense is the AM4 motherboard taking all the ryzen 3,5 and 7 processors. So perhaps this would be a good stepping stone to building a lower end PC.

Sideways move. I think with your useage, as long as you have a cheap gpu in your 3770 system the 2400G would perform roughly the same.

Seems a very good time to get into an all in one option for gaming fanatics at a value price, especially as all the AMD Ryzen Threadrippers will be rocketing in price and becoming like unicorns to find very shortly!
Holding off until AMD get the stuttering sorted out in games with whatever bios update and the occasional blue screens of death/refusal to start games/freezes when overclocking in some games. Early days, I know, and having to pair it with not just fast memory but dual channel to hit the higher fps/semi decent quality settings is a bit of a pain, convenience/price wise if trying to make a small build that will only take two sticks of ram, but... looks promising and more promising still with whatever APU upgrade AMD supersede this APU with.

I am keeping an eye on the price of the i3 8100. Still feels like a terrible time to be building PCs but hopefully component prices will change in the not too distant future.
Yeah, looks like 2200G paired with DDR4 3200, and an overclock on the APU cores is the way to go.

From hardware unboxed's testing, the 2400G's 11 vega CUs appear to benefit little from overclocking, presumably because they're already very close to the memory bandwidth limits of DDR4 3200.

Whereas the 2200G's 8 vega CUs stock performance leaves it with some memory bandwidth to spare and so benefit greatly from an overclock, very nearly matching the performance of the 2400G's 11 CUs @ stock.

On a side note, Ryzen was already quite reliant on fast ram; these APU's make it even more so.
The current ram market must be really hurting AMD's chances of expanding their market share at the bottom end.

Spending almost as much on 8GB of fast ram, as on a capable CPU AND iGPU.... that's just ridiculous.

Also when you can get the cheapest B350's for ~£60, less than £15 more than the absolute cheapest A320 boards, it seems to me like the A320 chipset is pointless.

This isn't a good comparison at all, for many reasons.

'If you do anything apart from gaming' isn't even correct. If you do things that do great with many threads, this is a good chip.

But, this chip is not ideal for 99.9% of users. I think even bringing up comparisons may confuse people into thinking this is 'the best chip for me'.

There are far better options for generic, everyday, use.

Between the i7 8700k, the i5 8400 and the Ryzen 1700... There aren't too many other chips to really consider...

If you are on a sub 200 budget, the i3 8100 and the Ryzen 1200 can enter the discussion.

But this chip? It's crazy to even suggest it's 'good' for most people as the price is outlandish combined with the motherboard.

If you need 16 cores/ 32 threads you will KNOW you need it. This is a great value for someone who needs 32 threads. But if you are sitting there going 'do I need this' the answer is absolutely NO!
Good cpu, good price, strong release, but overpriced boards ruined it for me as did high end ryzen and z370, in order to get a half decent board that had what I needed it was over £200 even £300 and the threadripper boards £300-£400 na never gonna happen the board partners are on another planet and costing sales of cpu's, and they wonder why board sales are at new lows.
I wish I knew enough about computers to build one. I take it I’m gonna need to spend a lot more then just this

If the Lenovo had the same spec it, for me it is the better laptopHowever you really need 8gb ram nowadays. The hard drive is not an issue 1tb or small SSD? I would go for the 1 tb as I can replace the SSD if I need to easily and use the 1tb as an external backup.so comparing both offers as is, the Dell is the better offer. The issues you want to consider are battery life - Lenovo is much better. Weight, the Lenovo wins again.

You need a GPU, or several, for that.

Binning specific to the Ryzen 8 cores is about the voltage and power …Binning specific to the Ryzen 8 cores is about the voltage and power efficiency at lower clocks. 1800X achieve their stock rated speeds at lower voltages than the 1700 and 1700X.But as my link pointed out, if you overclock that goes out the window and doesn't correlate. It doesn't guarantee higher ultimate clocks or lower voltages. It's clearly a limitation of this arch on this process. With any luck the revised Ryzen lineup out in April should hit higher clocks if nothing else. Certainly close the gap on Intel's more refined arch that can often surpass 5GHz.


Err..yeah. That was it!

The 1700 has a TDP of 65W. Possibly the 1800X aren't stable at 65W even when set to a lower clock speed.

How low do you think the 1600 will go ahead of zen+ refresh? The zen+ update looks fairly incremental so if 1st gen R5 1600 drops much lower I’ll probably pounce for gen1 ryzen. Then upgrade to zen2/3/whatever is compatible with the same socket in the future...
Imo there will be dumping of old stick soon to get ready for Ryzen refresh..
RAM is the killer at the moment.

My son's FX 8320 is already a bottleneck for the 280x he has in some games, I doubt the 1060 in this will be able to reach its full performance in running on such an old chip - remember that the FX 8300 in this "new" PC was manufactured 5-6 years ago!If you must have a prebuilt wait for the right deal with a Ryzen or recent Intel CPU, or ask around friends and family to see if anyone can help you with building one from scratch.


You are correct. The FX-8320 does bottleneck a GTX1060 3GB. Two of my friends own this combo and we tested in 5 games we play together. Best example: GW2, max settings, town area (a lot of players). FX-8320=20fps, and my i7-4790K=54fps. Same location in games, same settings, same gpu. You can't even call this cpu a gaming cpu.

FX-8320 is worse than a Pentium G4560. Pass.

i3 8100, windforce 1060 3gb, 8gb 2400mhz ddr4, better case, psu and hdd for £586. Have to build it yourself and wait for parts, but should be a lot better system, low end pcs are rubbish to buy anyway, need to be upgraded soon and the step up to better parts is quite cheap in retrospect.

Why do you hate AMD so much?I get a reasonable overclock on a cheap B350 and I have done on 3 other B350 boards and with a variety of RAM sticks. Absolutely, Ryzen is fussier than Intel at the moment with DDR4 and they need to set that out - as Intel has to when they went to DDR4.You talk about a motherboard over clocking poorly yet you then say you prefer a CPU that doesn’t overclock at all?Both Intel and AMD have good options. Luckily AMD have become competitive this time and we all benefit from the price drops of of both Intel and AMD.Fanboy-ism isn’t necessary.


This isn't fanboyism, it's about buying an affordable CPU without having to add 60 quid in a good cooler and 60 more quid on 'good' RAM.

It adds up very fast.

Also, yes, there is no manual OC options, but a well running 8400 still uses built in boost modes, so you end up with a good clock rate anyway.

You say you have 4 Ryzen based boards all running OCs on B350, so what did you OC them to?

What RAM, Cooler, and Motherboard did you wind up buying for each?

I bet you 'jumped up' a bit and got the 85 quid motherboards, maybe the Gigagybte A3 Gaming or the ASRock Fatality K4?

And, let me guess, you got the 'old and trusted' Hyper Evo 212?

And RAM, can't skimp on RAM, gotta get at least 2666 mhz... So why not just bump to a cool 3000 ;-)

Every time I ask this question and ask for details, people just kinda fade out.

And yes, I'm putting words in your mouth, please, I do actually want to hear what you bought, my experience with this situation has just... Taught... Me that people love to point to the 'Cheap B350 motherboards' but no one dares to actually buy the sub 80 quid boards (most are micro ATX anyway).

Thank you for your order from Scan.

is this even a new product range because it says still on pre order? it screams of a pricing error think it was meant to be 350 not 305, but that's not a deal anyway.
