Seems to have held its price. Paid £145 about 4 months ago, it's great CPU for productivity.
This may have expired, but can still get a 2700x here for 159.95. or in fact 151.95 with the 5% off offer. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/333654191149
I got a 2700. It's a great CPU but I should have got the 3600 - I just got a good bundle price and it never feels slow. Not sure I'd do it again though.
Must had been a good deal when I got it last year, I was expecting price to drop not increase after a year thats all. But yea I think you're right a decent CPU like this is fair to be between £150 to maybe £190 as I didnt realise the 3700x was pricing £250+ lol
Decent deal if you're upgrading on the AM4 platform, though if you're in the market for a new PC, AWD-IT have this for £159.99 when paired with a bundled motherboard. Tested and installed in the socket for you, and probably packed a lot better than Box too!
