r5 2600x vs i5 9400f (100$ difference)+

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi there, I am building a pc. since my parents are paying for this pc I wanna get most out of it. where I live pc parts are bit expensive than the USA.
so I'm right now confused between Rzen 5 or Intel i5 9400f. I need the pc to do a lot of multitasking and also 144hz gaming(80+ fps) in 1080p. Also, I'm NOT planning to upgrade my pc later.
part price
I5 9400f 186$
ryzen5 2600 235$
ryzen5 2600x 270$

so the money I'm saving by going with i5 is about 100$, so which CPU should I go with?
thank you.


======================

pc built I've decided is this.

CPU - AMD - Ryzen 5 2600X = 270$ or I5 9400f = 186$

Motherboard -MSI - B450M PRO-VDH PLUS Micro ATX =100$ or MSI - B360M PRO-VDH 90$

Memory -G.Skill - Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 =110$

Storage - Crucial - MX500 500 GB 2.5" SSD = 74$
Seagate - Barracuda 2 TB = 70$

Video Card - Zotac - GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB - 342$

Case - Thermaltake - Core V21 MicroATX = 80$

Power Supply - Corsair - CX 450 =50$

Seems a lot more expensive. Amazon sells the 2600x for 180$.

Where are you located OP?

I would recommend 9400 for gaming only, Ryzen if you have a lot of productivity tasks.

would recommend 2600 over it as non-ht CPUs have historcally been poor CPUs in shifting markets. just like the market we have today.

supply & demand, even for "same" performance.

but really never seen a 2600 above $200....

Take the 2600 non-X version, use the extra money on a better motherboard like an MSI Tomahawk if available.
