Looking to build your own PC? AMD’s Ryzen processors are at some of the lowest prices we’ve seen, giving you a great opportunity to outfit your build with one of the top processors on the market. We’ve spotted several sales on both select Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 series CPUs.

The Ryzen 5 and 7 represent AMD’s midrange and high end processors. Which one you choose depends on your computing needs. Everyday users that occasionally need power for processor-intensive tasks should look at the Ryzen 5, while gamers and power users should look towards the Ryzen 7 instead. Our search found the lowest online prices to be at either Walmart or Amazon, and some of the prices we saw were the lowest we’ve seen yet on the Ryzen line.

There’s also an added benefit to purchasing select AMD CPUs right now: As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, every purchase of the CPU deals we’re about to share with you include two games free with your purchase — Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 and World War Z. There are several U.S. retailers participating, including Micro Center (in-store only), Best Buy, Newegg, Walmart, and Amazon.
