  1. Budget (including currency): 1000 - 1500 Country: UK Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: World of Warships, Streamlabs, OBS, World of Tanks etc. Other details Hey there guys, a friend of mine from the UK has been talking with me and my friends about in regards to upgrading his gamerig however there were a few concerns about in relation to switching from Intel to AMD in terms of software re-installations and possible issues with being limited to the amount of CPU cores for it to operate efficiently. It has been awhile since he last upgraded his computer and has been thinking for awhile. What he does is he does play some quality games but at the same time, he also streams on his old game rig and likes having a decent system with good FPS but I understand that it you're with Intel you would have some better framerates turnover (how? I dunno) but the concern is whenever he is playing games and streaming. Basically he's looking at getting the Ryzen9 3900X and its a good system with all the 12 Cores and 24 Threads. He's upgrading from an Intel i5 4690K and I can tell the difference with the benchmark there https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-9-3900X-vs-Intel-Core-i5-4690K/4044vs2432 Basically the hardware of my friends old machine is looking like this https://www.userbenchmark.com/PCBuilder/Custom/S148810-M842647.141989.123.204853.998434vsS4682-M11612.141989.123.204853.100478?tab=MBD I can see that maybe the video card and the RAM might need to change for example but he has been planning on upgrading the powersupply as well too so I'm a bit sceptical on where the performance issue can be and would he experience any bottleneck issues with GPU performances etc. The other question is that does he need to reinstall Windows 10 because he is swapping hardware? and would he still be able to receive all the core performances? He saw an article and it scared him a little https://www.reddit.com/r/AMDHelp/comments/h81sl3/ryzen_3900x_not_performing_as_well_as_intel_i5/ Any advice or suggestions are welcome.
