    I'm so impressed the next few systems I build will be Ryzens....

    Rising component costs is an interesting one. Other than Intel processors, anyone see any components that are more expensive now than a couple of years ago?

    I got a motherboard and ram for that spare Ryzen I had kicking around. Seemed a shame to waste it.

    Motherboards are more expensive..... but yeah. This ickle Ryzen 2600 system is excellent value for money still

    I don't know, a reasonable B450 board is good for most things.

    I have recently got a 3700x and got a call from a friend building a pc for his son for Christmas and he said he wanted a ryzen processor before I even started.

    Talking to friends and many plan a ryzen chip on there next upgrade if things stay as they are.

    AMD are on the up and quite rightly so.

    Yes B450 here in this build. I was kinda generalising across both Intel and AMD though - look at prices of X570 boards etc. never been able to command those sorts of prices on AMD but as they have a much more rounded feature set than Intel now they can

    There are rumours that B550 is almost here, that might give sales another boost. I was put off by the fan in the X570 (though as I already had an X470 I wasn't really in the market anyway). The recent purchase was a £75 ASUS TUF B450M uATX board, it would have done for my main rig tbh.

    No talk of PCI Gen 4 in the B550 though. Seems a little odd to me but I could be wrong. I'd have thought they'd have kept all the 5 series chipsets on gen 4. However it's a step up from X370 and B450 boards

    I did see one mention where the primary lanes coming from the CPU IO die would be PCI-e 4.0 because there's no reason for them not to be.

    Kind of a shame, I'd expect higher. GPU ownership seems on the low side too considering they hold the dedicated as well as integrated market.

    Re: AMD CPUs pass 20 per cent share milestone in Steam survey

    I'm happy for AMD. They've really done an amazing comeback, especially on the CPU front. I hope they are able to bring the fight to Nvidia on the GPU front so that consumers will have better deals because of the competition.
