I was going to buy the i5-8400 and saw somebody say it's not compatible with my mobo, I was wondering if some people can clarify if that's the case? And if so, what would be the best cpu I could get that's compatible for the £200 range
IMO it doesn't really make sense to get a 7th gen i5 for 200 pounds when you can get something like a Ryzen 2600 + b450 mobo for only a bit more. Ryzen and 8th Gen Intel kinda ruined the value proposition of 7th Gen, often even if you already have a 7th Gen compatible mobo. Unless you can find a good deal on a used one.
