AMD Ryzen 7 1700X 3.4 GHz 8 Core AM4 Boxed Processor - $239.99 - Micro Center BM

Just did a search and did not see this was already posted - sorry if it's a repost. I saw a lot of people were interested in the non-x version for $220 so thought others might be interested in this.

This can also be bundled with a motherboard to save an additional $30.

Also there might be additional savings if price matched with the right store. Staples gives a 110% price match (if they carry this). And could have other incentives (larger cash back with credit card or cash back sites) with another store besides Micro Center.

Not only is the closest MC ~3 hours away, it's also in *Chicago* which puts the sales tax somewhere around 9%... That pretty much kills the discount that you'd get over other options.

edit: Although it looks like the deals on the 1700x are gone elsewhere, so this really is a screaming deal (if you have one near you). $60 cheaper than elsewhere, plus the $30 off a MB is insane.

I got Best Buy to pricematch Micro Center online by chatting with them here (https://www.bestbuy.com/site/cust...0300050002)

They actually went out of stock while I was chatting, but I was able to get the Ryzen 1700 for $220. I actually made my order to my house 150 miles away from the closest Micro Center, but when he asked for my zip code to confirm the price match, I told him the zip where a Best Buy and MC were right next to each other. HE didnt even question my order address and credited me the $110.

A little annoyed I didnt get the 1700X, but all reviews say they're about the same.

They're not about the same they are the same. The 1700x comes locked a slightly higher clock speed but the 1700 can be OC'ed to hit the same frequency. Moral of story this is a great processor. Regardless of the model you buy just OC to 3.9 Ghz and you'll see no differences.

I wonder what prices these will fall to once the 2xxx series Ryzen CPUs come out in a couple months....
