If you're building a new PC or looking to upgrade your existing build, you may want to look into a new AMD CPU. Today we're seeing huge price drops on a whole lot of AMD CPUs (opens in new tab) from budget picks to some of the faster options available. The least expensive option is the AMD Ryzen 5 4500 going for just $79, which normally sells for around $129 or more. The most expensive option is the AMD Ryzen 9 5950X at $549, and that's a CPU that can sell for around $650 on any other day.

The point is you have options no matter how much you want to spend. Plus, you can find a lot of these deals at several retailers from Best Buy to Amazon. Some of these CPUs are having a hard time staying in stock, but that's likely because of the sale that is dropping them to all new lows.
