The new 7000-series of Ryzen processors are out in the wild, and there are only a few options available. But it's not cheap to fully upgrade to a new platform at the moment, so you might be interested in upgrading an existing AM4 system, or even just building a new budget AM4 rig rather than becoming an early adopter of AM5.
The Asus ROG M16 Zephyrus is down to $1,549 at Best Buy. With an Intel i9 processor and RTX 3060 GPU, this laptop is built for mobile gaming.
If you're looking for a good price on some RAM then TeamGroup's T-Force Vulcan Z 32GB DDR4 3200MHz RAM kit is priced nicely at just $79. 32GB is more than enough for most tasks and offers a little future-proofing.

I wouldn't spend more than 120 dollars for a 5700g at this point.Reply
aren't those Zen2 & PCIE3 only ? .... 232$ nice try AMDReply
To be fair PCIe 3.0 isn't bad for anything other than faster storage options of 4.0 and higher.wifiburger said:aren't those Zen2 & PCIE3 only ? .... 232$ nice try AMD
Right on some points. https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-ryzen-7-5700g-reviewwifiburger said:aren't those Zen2 & PCIE3 only ? .... 232$ nice try AMD
It's Zen 3 and PCI-e 3. But also right that it should come down in price further. PCI-e 3 probably not a problem if integrated graphics all you need.
When looking for real deals, can you start throwing in some mini PC's if there's spotted? I have my main rig, but would just like to hook up a small one for a HTPC.Reply
The article explicitely cited owners of 2nd gen Ryzen as targets.Reply
As such owner, my only interest would be for a discounted 5800X3D, because it's the best DDR4 CPU in the world, and for the additionnal performance in VR.
kinda same as how the i7 4770k was : best cpu on DDR3
Appart from VR, I never ever felt CPU-bound in any game or app since i have my 2700x
But 500$ for better VR is too expensive to justify for now.
amazon.ca ranks the 5800X3D as no1 product in the processor category. I guess my fellow canadian citizens are rich lol
