    Is there anything good about the prospect of pairing these...?
    I know it would be better to go/stick with Intel, but they're a not doing themselves any favours w/ value-for-money.

    LF feedback form anyone with good experience of the above, please...

    Like... World of Warcraft? The recommended specs ask for an AMD FX-8310, so I can't see a Ryzen - original flavour or new and improved - having any difficulty with it.

    The only reason to stick with Intel right now is if you absolutely positively need thunderbolt. For pretty much everything else AMD is the better option.

    Well... ‘better’ in what sense? Value and longetivity? Absolutely. Raw performance and clocks? Nope.

    Thanks, all... esp. Halfy.
    My Windows install seems to have taken a dump, so this can be shut down/deleted...
