Thanks for the contribution, master list has been updated for now.
Oh boy. I forgot the OS. That´s like $100 more
$30USD from Kinguin.net
This thread is helping me now. Are the rates and specs still same?
You mentioned a rendering PC. Build a Ryzen rig. There are no Ryzen builds here.
Yes Gaming+Rendering. This thread also looks insightful to me.
Added a GTX 1080 build into the $1200 category due to recent price drops.
I made new builds for most price categories for late 2017.
Nice. Ryzen is awesome.
Ryzen is indeed awesome!
The FX CPUs were great for their time too.
Yup, never used that one though
I had (and still have it somewhere) a FX 8350 and I fail to understand the backlash it received. Paired with a 980 Ti, the only game it didn't get 60 FPS on was GTA V, out of the ones I tested.
FX processors are great, but extremely inefficient compared to what's on the market 5 years later..
Ryzen has a certain bang-for-the-buck value, but Intel's Coffee Lake seems to be a winner right now. For budget CPUs my choice would be the Pentium G4600 or i3-8100.
I'd honestly argue Ryzen simply for the fact the motherboard you'd get with a Ryzen chip is going to be viable much longer than a comparable Intel board and you can later throw in a much better CPU without necessitating a platform change. And Ryzen boards generally are cheaper last I checked.
That's assuming AMD or Intel doesn't plan to alter their current motherboard patterns.
I'd go for a Ryzen 1200. The 8100 is better but the Z370 boards aren't cheap and we have to wait until Q1 2018ish for the cheaper chipsets to be released.
