Hardware enthusiasts planning your next build or looking to do some extensive upgrades will face more buying decision this week, as AMD's Ryzen 7 is even more price attractive thanks to a new deal at Jet.com. While we can't resolve the Intel vs AMD dilemma for you, we can point you to some pretty decent CPU deals this week on both the Ryzen 7 CPUs and Intel Kaby Lake processors.
At Jet.com, you can now apply a $30 off coupon for some decent price drops on AMD's newly minted processors. This code is now valid on both the Ryzen 7 1700 and the Ryzen 7 1700X, both of which were added to Jet's store catalog earlier this month and knocks the price down to $300 and $367. Accompanying AMD's offering are also some deals on Intel's Kaby Lake in the form of a Core i7-7700K and the Core i5-7600K, both of which are now priced at about $318 and $205 after coupon. The coupon code is good for your first three purchases at Jet and seems to have been extended for the foreseeable future. (Previously was set to expire April 1st, later tonight).

In our list of hardware deals above, the most noteworthy deals, of course, are the new Ryzen 7 from AMD. The better value of the two is of course the 1700 when overclocked . This is the first coupon code we've seen that works on the Ryzen 7, specifically the 1700.
Other deals noteworthy (in their pricing anyways) includes last year's Core i5-6600K hitting a brand new low, cracking the $200 price point and now at only $189.99. Newegg is also offering a GTX 1060 at under the $180 price mark, while you can scoop up an RX 480 at Jet for about $167. Note that for the Walmart-owned online retailer, you can also tap into a bit more savings if you choose to opt-out of free return or utilize a debit card - but it is in our opinion that the savings are minimal and aren't exactly worth it, particularly for pricey hardware components like these. Knock on wood and all that if you receive a component dead-on-arrival.
Note: If anything above is expired, let us know in the comments and we'll strike 'em out. Deals are mostly for North America consumers, particularly those in the USA.
