If you've waited at exactly the right time to overhaul your PC, Newegg offers some powerful seductive discounts on an AMD Ryzen CPU and Radeon GPU that would be solid cornerstones for a powerful game and productivity rig. The AMD Ryzen 7 1700X processor is $ 150and the MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC is $ 190 , each after a trade-in discount of $ 20. The CPU is $ 50 off the current Amazon price and about $ 30 below the historic low. It's a similar story for the RX 580, which is $ 35 cheaper than a few weeks ago.
The Ryzen 7 1700X from $ 150 is an 8-core, 16-wire processor that reaches up to 3.8 GHz, but can be overclocked, unlike competing Intel chips. This specific chip comes with a CPU cooler, but you can always pick up our trusted Go-to, the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo, for $ 30 on Amazon. An even better plan would be to keep your eyes open for a Black Friday price on a new CPU cooler from stores such as Amazon, Newegg and TigerDirect.
We did not review the Ryzen 7 1700X, but we did set it up on Intel's Core i7-8700K in that CPU assessment in October 2017. The overall AMD chip went very well, and although it was a bit lagging behind the Intel option in gaming workloads, it's just great to play and the Ryzen 7 1700X excels at work thanks to the abundant cores and wires. This is especially true when you see that the 8700K still costs well over $ 300.
Regarding the 8GB MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC, it's a great choice for 1080p gaming with maximum graphics settings, and thanks to its large memory capacity, it can keep playing well at 1440p gaming if you do not mind dropping the eye candy from Ultra to High. I bought one for myself for a higher price just a few weeks ago.[Dedealsoftoday:Ryzen71700Xfor$150[Today'sdeals:Ryzen71700Xfor0[Dedealsvanvandaag:Ryzen71700Xvoor0[Today’sdeals:Ryzen71700Xfor0 and the MSI Radeon RX 580 Armor OC for $ 190 after MIR on Newegg.]
