    Well I took a look at the AMD market place and given the budget of £1000, AMD comes in nicely with compromises on Graphics cards etc

    Motherboard:
    GIGABYTE B550I Aorus Pro AX £170
    Gigabyte X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI (AMD AM4) DDR4 X570 Chipset Mini-ITX Motherboard £210
    CPU:
    AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Zen 3 CPU Base: 3.7GHz, Turbo: 4.6GHz – 6 Cores, 12 Threads £280
    AMD Ryzen 7 5800X 8-Core 16-Thread AM4 Unlocked 100-100000063WOF £330
    AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12-Core 24-Thread AM4 Unlocked 100-100000061WOF £450
    RAM:
    Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 3200Mhz £97
    Graphics:
    MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB LP Graphics Card £219
    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6GB OC GAMING Graphics Card £450
    Power Supply:
    Corsair SF Series, SF450, 450 Watt, £82
    Corsair SF600 600W SFX £100
    Drive:
    Crucial P2 1TB PCIe M.2 2280SS SSD £99
    SanDisk Ultra 3D SSD 1TB £107
    Samsung 870 EVO 1TB SATA £125
    chassis:

    So the choice is as follows, doesn’t included licenses / CPU heatsink, CD-rom etc, but given budget is a good compromise I believe

    Motherboard:
    Gigabyte X570 I AORUS PRO WIFI (AMD AM4) DDR4 X570 Chipset Mini-ITX Motherboard £210
    CPU:
    AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Zen 3 CPU Base: 3.7GHz, Turbo: 4.6GHz – 6 Cores, 12 Threads £280
    RAM:
    Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2X16GB) DDR4 3200Mhz £97
    Graphics:

    Power Supply:

    That is what I am finding, prices are way to high. Anything ASUS from a gaming perspective is good, shame about the hybrid HDD /SSD but a good purchase considering the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 is worth £700 + on its own . I doubt it will be in stock anytime soon

    John Lewis said they will order new stock in mid Jan 22.  If price is close to that I will buy.  The NVMe SSD and HDD are separate.

    Great balanced spec in my opinion

    ‘The NVMe SSD and HDD are separate’, that is much better,

    Great balanced spec in my opinion

    It was tricky to get a semi good gaming system for around £1000, luckily I have a few old PC’s so can scavenge Ribbons, CD drives etc if my friend needs them.

    AMD definitely provided better cost savings

    6600XT is a better GPU.

    Try this website:

    You can find pre-built and try custom build as well from here:

    https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/computers/amd-am4-gen3-pc/

    My current PC is from them
