There are plenty deals to take advantage of if you're looking to build or upgrade your own PC, but if you're a little concerned about picking the wrong parts this bundle will not only provide some peace of mind, but will also save you money in the process. For Cyber Monday, Amazon is selling a bundle consisting of an AMD Ryzen 7 3800X CPU, Samsung EVO Plus SSD, and MSI motherboard for just $515.
This AMD bundle from Amazon has nearly everything you need to build your own PC, including the CPU, motherboard, and SSD, all at a discounted price.
What makes this such a good deal is the components included. The processor alone — the incredibly powerful Ryzen 7 3800X — is $330 on its own. The SSD and motherboard make up the rest of this value, but the Samsung SSD is $100 and the motherboard is $240, making this quite the saving of around $150. That amount could cover the cost of a PSU and some RAM, forming a full PC build.
While the processor is really good, Amazon didn't cut corners with the SSD and motherboard. Samsung's 970 EVO Plus SSD is ridiculously good and the MSI MPG X570 Gaming PRO Carbon is a solid board, not only for performance and overclocking, but also comes with Wi-Fi, which may be rather useful.
The only drawback to this deal is the wait for delivery. Amazon is currently expecting orders to be processed and parts delivered within two months. If you need these parts right now, you'll have to look at other bundles or buy the components individually, but if you can wait this out, you'll save yourself some cash.
