Best deal I've found for a 7600x with 32GB DDR5-5600 Memory.

Add the 7600X Processor + 16GB DDR5 Memory combo to the cart (248.98). Add a 2nd memory [microcenter.com] stick to the cart ($79.99-79.98=$0.01) which equals $249.

Add a motherboard to save another $20.

Ok deal if this is all the memory you need in single channel. If you are going to MC then just get the 7700X with the free 32GB kit. If you get this and another stick of RAM it's almost the same price and with a slower CPU.

It's 2 sticks of single channel memory which should bring it to be dual channel. You have to add the 2nd stick of 16GB memory to the cart

I'd take the i7. That is a great deal. Performs on par with that 7700x give on certain benchmarks.

This doesn't come with a CPU cooler?

I second-guessed my i7 combo purchase as well when I saw this... but it looks like they pretty much trade blows depending on the game and it's mostly a wash (with the i7 having an edge for productivity and other thread-heavy tasks).

If I were building from scratch I'd go with this 7600X + DDR5 for a bit of future-proofing, but if I were upgrading and already had good DDR4 memory, I'd still go with the i7 combo.

The matching stick is +$80

https://www.microcenter.com/produ...-fx5-black

This kinda kills the deal for me. $20 more and you get the 7700x and 32 GB 6000 Ram

Add it to your cart with the combo and it will be 0.01

Temping, I already bought the 7700X and 32GB combo for $400.

Coming from the 5800X seems the 7600X would just be a side grade.

But great price, essentially since this will make processor $100ish if you value memory $200ish and you can get $20 off mobo combo.

Note the 7700X gave $50 off mobo combo.

Looks like Microcenter has lowered the price.

The bundle plus the additional stick of RAM is now $249.
