Similarly ro DeckerdBR I am looking to upgrade an aging 2500K. This is not a complete system build just the mobo and CPU. I have already managed to get my hands on 16gb of 4000mhz ddr4 ram at a comparitively good price so I am not limited by ram speeds. I have been in the Intel camp since I started building PCs, however, since all the vehement Intel bashing thats appeared I have started to look more towards AMD. The i5 9600K was initially going to be my primary choice, however the initial £300 asking price, plus middling performance seem to have limited its appeal. This made me look more towards a Ryzen 7 2700 or 2700X. However recently the 9600K has dropped under £250.... https://www.overclockers.co.uk/inte...ocket-lga1151-processor-retail-cp-65n-in.html ..... and includes a free game I was looking to get into the bundle. From a completely neutral standpoint which way would you go. Intel or AMD? I know this can like asking some people Man U or Liverpool, Tories or Labour' however I am genuinely a bit stuck at the moment! The PC will be used as a bit of a 'Jack of all trades' rather than having a specific focus. Thanks for any help.
