Why buy a 9600k if you can't overclock it?
I got a large discount if I took it in this exact config. I can still go out and a new mobo, and it will still cost me less overall. For now this works, don't think I need to overclock in the near/medium term
Initially I was working on a Ryzen 7 and 590 build, but this came in a lot less than that. I paid 12000 Rand total (excluding the 1TB SSD), the Ryzen was coming in at 20000 and the one with the overclocking compatible board close to 19000
I am currently living outside of ZA, so take prices with a pinch of salt.
