Try and match price to performance of this build... uk prices £1200 full build including monitor keyboard mouse...

Xeon is significantly cheaper than Epyc, easy choice if you want ECC

Strange I tried to build all new pc...AMD is way cheaper for entry-med level PC build, I did a performance and price research

The other thing useful on AMD based systems, I could chuck a Ryzen 3 3300x in my current 1300x motherboard without a problem,
I couldnt chuck an Intel i3-9100 into a 7100's mobo with just a bios upgrade

Intel top CPU in the UK: £500-1000
AMD top CPU in the UK: £300-500

My $1000 AMD build is just as fast as my girlfriend's intel and nvidia build. And costs $600 less..I actually bave better performance when Im multitasking because of the 6 cores and 12 threads of the ryzen 2600 paired with the 16 gigs of 3200 RAM.

I’ll save ya 12 minutes. It’s because they provide similar performance in the low and mid range, for a good bit less.
You Don't Need To Know Sh!t
i am poor i stuck with my i3 6100 and gtx 960 :D
Evan Gangle
yeah but you can get the r3 1200 on newegg for $80 and that creams anything intel has to offer at that price.

I hate when someone goes like intel totally suck..
Not worth it..
Amd is better.. Intel suck..

I personally bought a pc in late 2012-13ish.a i5 3rd gen.. And it is still freaking working right now... It sometimes have load pressure and lag a bit... But It is old AF....

I think if u got a pretty good budget.. Then intel is one of beat..
But budget pc amd is ruling rn
Tobias Stamenkovic
Was "allmost" interesting... Would have loved to see both rigs with a 1660, and figure how much additional goodness you get from the CPU side of things.
I mean, if your looking for sort ofa game console replacement that was actually not bad, but alot of us arent just interested in gaming performance "only".
You see, when half my cores and clogged up by some VM running in the background etc i DO care for them cores and RAM. Oh the sweet RAM... :P

What would life had been like if Cyrix lived.
