Playing S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat on my 5800x3d and 6700xt.  Like to see what old games are like after I upgrade.  Spiderman Remastered next.  Almost forgot, I need to check how it runs on a 7700x. 😉

AYOO Chinese and quandale dingle lore be like:

Sweet CPU, thanks for the giveaway AMD. 

Not too much happening except I bought an electric standing desk frame, and modified my old desk to use it!  Works great, and gives me more opportunities to stretch and get blood flowing instead of sitting too much.  I wish I had bought it sooner.

Trying to update from 3700x to this chip

Great processor to start off the AM5 journey.

Adept II

I think I have good enough cooling on hand to keep this CPU chugging without throttling.

A Ryzen™ 7 7700X would be awesome

I confess, my favorite part about building a new PC is getting an awesome deal and maximizing price to performance.  That's why my current PC is using an R5 5600 (upgraded from a 3600 thanks to a crazy good holiday deal) and a 5700 XT I snagged a few years ago, right before the crypto boom completely wrecked the GPU market.  I'm still really happy with it.  But...well, there's no better deal that "free" am I right?  As much as I had every intention of skipping this generation of CPUs and GPUs, if I won a 7700X, I think building a new PC would be what they call a moral imperative.

I want a new CPU!!!!

May the RAFFLE GODS smile upon me!!!

Well I did not know all of the new AMD 5 socket chips have integrated graphics. I like the fact that you can still run the CPU without an overpriced GPU. I know its lame to have this good of a CPU not to pare it with a good GPU but at least this way you can wait on a good deal or just the time to save the money for an overpriced GPU. Kudos to AMD.

Hello beloved Red Team
I just bought a RX 7900 XTX and would be very happy about the CPU. Then my Ryzen 5600x CPU could go into early retirement and my graphics card gets a good companion at the side.
Good luck to all in the lottery

Holy crap! I bet this would blow away my old R5 1600.


Adept III

February already. older I get the faster it goes

Adept I

roh a good ddr5 upgrade 😀

Adept II

This would be a great start on a new build!

Adept III

not correct thread title:

"Red Team USA Monthly Sweepstakes: February – Featuring a Ryzen 7 7700X''
you are lying to the other AMD fans from other countries of the world
Adept II

Hey! Best prize yet! Waiting on the new x3d chips but I’ll “settle” for this.

Adept II

Hello, Amber AMD,

Is there any plans to make the sweepstakes international, after all AMD is a global brand and we all support and love your products. I mean giving special preference to the USA and Canada, seems kind of strange, do you not think so? I would like to see Team Red go Global with these, Team Red forever!


 I want to see a global sweepstakes show.😊

Adept II

Well, now we're into the month of February so the February sweeps is born.  It's critical to keep up with technology which is why a brand new Ryzen 7 7700 X would keep me moving by taking the next big step ... AM5!  😎

Adept II

Great savings on an upgrade, would offset some expense of new motherboard and ram needed to make this bad boy sing.

Adept III

Hi! Building a small form factor PC for a friend of mine, which consists of Ryzen 5900X and MSI B550i motherboard in a Fractal Torrent Nano case... It is going to be a small powerhouse 🙂

I agree with the MSI part, but not the B550 chipset.  Your friend spends that kind of cash for the 5900X then goes lower budget on the motherboard.  Should have convinced them to go with the MEG X570 series for a little more $$$.

True to AMD


I'll give it a shot. Would love to upgrade from 3000 series.

Just upgraded my cpu to a 5700x A 7 series would be a killer upgrade. currently im running the 5700x coupled with a 5700xt gpu, she's a matching machine.

That is a monster combo.  I have the RX 5700 XT running on my Ryzen 9 3900X.  I'm not even concerned about overclocking.

Hi! can hardly wait to upgrade my rig.

Adept III

Good luck to all US users. Anyone outside the US will only watch the giveaway and not win. Thank you AMD.
