Ryzen 5 2600 on sale for $199.
Pretty decent price for a 6c/12t processor!

Can probably price match at ME if you have one nearby: https://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX71224


With Trump tariffs, don't know where prices will end up in the future

@ $199.99 for 2600 is a bargain if u look at intel's recent pricing issues and the overpriced i9-9900K ($670)
tho not sure if u want the upgrade to the x470 mb. but still u can get both for around $400 and that's a deal. Then u can upgrade to the ryzen 3000 coming out *Q2 2019.

Thanks! Anyone have a recommended motherboard for this? I keep getting compatibility errors on PC Part Picker when selecting 350's. Does it have to be 450+?

tempting. Will be probably make a new build this year.... on techradar they said "AMD appears to be trying to poach customers from Intel following the revelation of the latter’s new 9th-gen processors and their pricing, with the asking price of the Ryzen 7 2700X being chopped to just $294.99 at Amazon over in the US." Perhaps will see some more price drops black Friday?

It's a valid warning but I think any recent b350 stock should be flashed to support these chips. In the absolute worst case you can ask amd for a flash kit still I think.

When I bought at Newegg they specified on the website that my 350 mobo was ryzen 2000 ready. If your buying in store, the box will have a sticker on it saying if it's compatible with raven ridge CPUs

If only I didn't insist on Intel I'd be tempted.

I saw this deal first on a different site and end up jumping on it. Currently running an i5-4690 in my pc, which I've had for about 3 years and its starting to show its age. Upgrading to the Ryzen 5 2600 will be a huge performance uplift for me. Paired with a budget B450 board and some 3000mhz CL15 ram from newegg, I'm super stoked that I managed to upgrade my entire system for less than the cost of an i7-8700k (currently $490). https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/c9y8XP

This is a good deal, but the stated discount is wrong. $229.99 is the new normal price for this chip.

A B450 mobo is about $10 more than a B350 mobo, you avoid any potential firmware update issues, get slightly better performance, and it comes bundled with the storemi ssd caching software.
