  I think we are talking about different things, I am speaking about a prebuilt computer, where the manufacturer put in there own stripped motherboard, low wattage power supply, ect.  I guess you could put in a new motherboard and pwr supply , maybe a graphics card and of course the M.2, all this for a Skylake, but I'm sure it cost a bit more when new.

Ok my mistake Carl, just wanted to clear that up.

It looks like Intel are dropping their CPU prices to compete with AMD Ryzen.

This is good  Smiley

 I'd already answered this but that's not here so I saw the link but it didn't work then, checking the links again show Micro has cut some prices which are not cut at Newegg, the numbers seem to be off and you don't save as much money as stated, I also noted they sell z170 motherboards for the
Kaby which should have the z270.

I think this is down to the retailers Carl, over here on Ebuyer as I'm posting this the i7 7700k has been reduced from £373 to £325, a saving of nearly £50 and interestingly the i7 7700k is now almost the same price as the Ryzen 1700, and to my mind the Ryzen 1700 is a far better CPU with more cores, more threads and lower power consumption.

It's still early days and we might see more of this from more retailers.

Information was correct at time of posting.
