Very good cpu I use it for my gaming pc, I play in 1440p and can handle any game with a gtx 1080 ti
Can anybody find a full ATX motherboard to suit this chip similar to the recent hukd currys £65 msi radeon board ?
AMD is stupidly priced atm. Everything is out of stock and because AMD is the go to nowadays due to the influence youtube gives it means that people over charge for AMD processors. This CPU is great to go for and i massively recommend it, just go for the i5 if you have a spare 50 quid in your budget. Have a good one mate
Thanks Joel, will check out the b460 mortar, I have an rx580 8gb sapphire for the GPU, till the market gets better I can put in a build, but the 6 cores in the i5 would be useful as i compile quite a bit of audio and video, unfortunately everything with AMD on it at the moment seems to be silly money even for used.
I have. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/vp7vvf this is my build, it cost me just over 600 quid. I got my GTX 1060 for 140 quid used and then everything else was brand new. A great first build and the chip is very solid. If i had an extra 50 quid I would defo have goten an i5 10400f just for the extra cores and threads and 6 cores 12 threads seems to be the sweet spot for budget gaming and everyday use. Hope this helped. (The B460 Mortar is a marvolous board, definitely worth the extra bit of money as it has a great Bios and is good for upgrades due to its 4 dimm slots and that it has the same socket as the future intel 11th gen. Im going to try and get the i5 11400f when it is released aslong as it a reasonable price. Never thought I would say this but Intel is the way to go for budget builds atm, Hope you enjoy yours!
