Amazon offers the AMD Ryzen 7 1700 3 GHz 8 core CPU for $249.99 shipped. Also at Newegg. Both websites offer a $30 mail-in rebate, which drops the processor down to $219.99 shipped should you choose to send it in. Normally $280, this is one of the best prices we’ve ever tracked and the lowest currently available. AMD’s Ryzen platform is great for gaming and productivity computers alike. Rated 4.7/5 stars at Amazon. We used AMD’s Ryzen 5 in our budget gaming PC build, and the Ryzen 7 will give even greater performance.
