Come Ryzen 3000, sell the the R5 and get a newer model.
Only 1600+Mobo I saw was the A320m for £185, unless I missed a bundle?
Also figured the 1600X being cheaper by £2, might as well go with that as I have an X61 (once I get the bracket)?
But yeah, that was the positive way i was looking at going Ryzen, there's an upgrade path there. Just issue is the loss of SATA and spending more money in the meantime haha. Appreciate your input.
