It’s a good time to be a bargain-hunting PC enthusiast. Component deals have been gathering pace throughout 2023, and while price-slashed SSDs have hogged the limelight, there are similarly enticing bargains on the CPU front.

We picked out AMD’s Ryzen 5 7600 as a prime budget choice earlier this week – it’s a great deal at £209 with cooler and Starfield included – but for those hoping for a bit more oomph, credit cards at the ready as the Ryzen 7 7800X3D has dropped below £400 for the first time ever.

The cache-laden processor is an outstanding choice for a high-end gaming rig and is now retailing for £379 at Amazon UK. The discount across the Atlantic isn’t quite as tempting as US pricing remains at $441, yet with Intel prepping its Raptor Lake Refresh, we suspect further AMD price cuts could be incoming.

Just in case you’re wondering, Ryzen 7 7800X3D is part of AMD’s current game-bundle promotion, meaning you’ll be eligible for a Starfield Standard Edition game code, which typically retails for £69.99. That brings the cost of the CPU down to an effective £310, representing a cracking deal for one of the most capable gaming CPUs ever released.
