    AMD for sensible people on a budget. It’s all about bragging rights over your mates if your going intel . I have 30 years between my two PC builds so I needed some advice. I spent some time researching and listening to Linus’s you tube channel. Set a budget and stuck to it a little help from younger guys at work I built a desk top budget gaming pc for 600 Euros . It’s a absolute smasher and dose everything I want it to do . AMD 3i , Asus board 8 gb ram , budget case 500w ps 64gb pci card Samsung 500 storage 1050ti GC Three case fans . Quite as a mouse . I kick ass on WOW and WOT . Thanks Linus and your team.

    The truth is: gaming performance relies mostly on GPU... so you can compare AMD with a potato and still get parity.

    mitigations=off (without internet) vs on in Manjaro Lignux with this same CPUs as now Intel is 40% worse after mitigations. Plus, of course, MS WOS and wine. Perhaps some games performance and video editing and rendering performance increases with Intel make worth to play - or render - wine - or Lignux native games or video editing software - offline and with mitigations=off, as it is 66% faster (60%x1.66=100) much more than any overclock

    This is just needlessly complicated Cases and PSUs work on both, so those could have been excluded especially as they don't impact performanceSo the "budget" could then have just been for drives, CPU, motherboard, cooler, ram and GPU but with a reflectively smaller budget and with an identical case and PSU being "assumed" for each build

    I own both intel and AMD systems. For my most recent build (after years of not gaming) I went with AMD and I have no regrets. I have been an AMD fan since I was 14 when I built my first gaming system (33yo now) I am into this build for under 1k and not completely finished with it, however it is finished in the aspect of being a respectable gaming system. -ASUS Prime X470-Pro - $150 -Ryzen 5 2400g - $150 (because I wanted to wait to buy a card - will prob upgrade to 7 2700 eventually) -Sapphire Nitro+ RX590 - $229 -16GB Crucial tactical 3000mhz - $100 (will add another 16) -FSP HYDRO GE 550 - $75 -Crucial MX500 1TB SSD - $120 -Metallic Gear MG-NE510_SR01 Neo Series ATX Case Silver - $110 ***Total $932 I big part of the cost went into the aluminum and glass case which I forget exactly the cost but it was something like $110 and a 3 year warranty on all of the hardware. All things considered I still came in well under 1k and absolutely love the way the rig turned out. I am not a hardcore gamer by any means. I mostly just been playing Paladins with my g/f. With gfx maxed out the game is capping FPS solid at 175..which is totally overkill because I vsync 144hz.. but from the research I did prior to this build I should be able to see 60+fps max setting / 1080 on mostly any game that is out right now.

    Double channel ram has a bigger impact on games than one could think. Comparing single channel 1bank 8GB vs 2x4GB could be not so fair. Maybe Comparing them the same ram config could show more differences

    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

    I'd like to see you guys do an analysis like this but for a Linux server build (nothing having to do with gaming, nor with video performance in general). I'd like to build some servers to use in-house (on-premises) to experiment with developing fast (no Internet-related speed restrictions) shared database applications and for other things that I don't want to have deployed in the cloud. Reliability and storage redundancy would be very important, whereas, CPU performance wouldn't be. A discussion of RAID controller options as well as JBOD controller options would be very nice also, as would issues pertaining to disk drive choices. Slower cooler-running and quiet drives would be my choice over louder, hotter-running, high-RPM drives.
