    Sadly reductions in CPU prices (Ryzen 1700 is only £230ish here now!) have been more than countered by the ridiculous DDR4 price hikes.

    Wow. Glad I bought memory back in April just in case prices went up even more. Had a feeling it would not come down.
    I can't be bothered to convert currency, but the kit I bought then cost me 1095 NKR. It's now up to 1699.

    yep, decent ddr4 amount and speed (and latencies since we are talking about that crap MC made fore ryzen!), is like the combo Ryzen + good tier MB.

    hey i'm not trying to pile on but there's something you might want to know.

    i'm running windows 10 on four machines (Ryzen 1700, threadripper 1900x -$150 off on Amazon rt. now,
    I7- 7700, Q6600 -core duo quad) 2 Intel, 2 AMD.
    ALL of whom have/had issues with Win 10.

    speaking from experience shared with most here, you really need to clean install Win 10. especially if you were running 32 bit windows.
    i thought my htpc (Q6600 intel) wouldn't need a clean install...i was horribly wrong.

    All AMD cpu's are just as compatible as Intel with Win 10. i installed Win 10 64 bit to Ryzen and Threadripper in less than 15 minutes (for both), waiting on MS updates from MS servers is just as time consuming for any cpu. My i7-7700 was pre-loaded with MSI bloatware - but it was a clean install (at factory).
