Ryzen 2nd gen deals question

 Share

I'm seeing the ryzen 5 2600 going for about $160 should I buy it now or wait a bit until black Friday or cyber Monday comes? The $160 is such a good deal just hope they don't raise the price anytime soon.

It's unlikely it goes much lower

 

just get it with the ASrock Pro 4 or MSI tomahawk as the minimum motherboards to buy.

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

You can wait, Ryzen 5s arent in short supply so there should be meaningful amount of discount.

Yes, the msi tomahawk is on my cart but I'll check out that ASRock pro 4 board thanks.

The tomahawk is a bit better

 

There's also the Gigabyte Gaming Ultra if you want to get into some more overclocking.

True, and also for the CPU, at 160$ is not such good deal considering the 8 core 1700 is just a bit more expensive.

Cheaper SSDs are going to be fine
