Newegg offers the AMD RYZEN 7 1700X 8 core CPU for $239.99 shipped when you checkout with code NEN429. Normally $300, this is the best we’ve ever tracked and even beats Amazon’s lowest price by over $10. If you’re wanting to build your own PC, or maybe upgrade an existing RYZEN computer, this is a fantastic option. We used the little brother of this model, the RYZEN 5 1400, in our budget gaming PC build we recently completed. Rated 4.7/5 stars on Amazon.
