Time to build a budget gaming PC

The price of AMD's Ryzen 5 7600X, a six-core marvel, has plummeted to an incredibly affordable €179. That's a staggering 40 per cent discount from its initial price of €299, making it a thrilling opportunity for budget-conscious gamers.

This is important as one of the criticisms of the Ryzen 5 7600X was that it had a steep launch price and needed expensive DDR5 memory. With DDR5 costs taking a nosedive, this processor is a steal for the savvy gamer looking to build something more powerful on a budget.

Let's not forget, this chip packs a punch with its six AMD Zen 4 cores and a turbo boost of 5.3GHz. While it may not match the multi-threaded power of its Ryzen 9 7950X sibling or the extra E-cores of Intel's Core i5 14600K, these six cores are more than enough—and they're lightning-quick to boot, ensuring a smooth gaming experience.

The chip has fallen below €199 in the past but never this low—all you need is some DDR5 RAM and a compatible Socket AM5 motherboard. You can snag 32GB of DDR5 memory for under €100.
