How about for intel? Not a fanboy but my friend keeps telling me to go for intel and not amd/ryzen because he said that he experienced a lot of problems using amd. Also what might be the problems that he's talking about?

Your friend is lazy af. I do not knwo anything about problems other that higher temps, but i have a basic post how to fix that. For 200 buck in intel you could get i5 9400f having 6 cores and 6 threads. r5 3600 has 6 cores 12 threads. r7 2700x has 8 cores 16 threads

Wait my calculations were wrong lol😂

50 php = 1 usd so my budget is less than $500 on cpu, mobo and ram

I've already planned everything and ready to order online now thanks to you guys

So I'm getting an r5 3600 thats around 11k php ($220) + not really sure on the motherboard but i think im gonna go with asus rog strix b450-f which is around 7k php ($140) and 2x8gb ddr4 3200mhz ram which is around 3500 php ($70, btw this is the cheapest i found and has a nice design/rgb design)

Better motherboard for future upgrades, since this is amd you do not have to buy new motherboard when upgrading.

Better ram, 3600mhz cl16 better than yours

The x570, unfortunately, are very expensive in my country. Are x470s good? If it is, then I'll just wait maybe a few days to buy it instead of the x570. Also, the price of the r5 3600 in my country is fixed around $200 - $250

Yes, but you need to bios update them with older ryzen cpu to use the newest ryzen in them, and in the future who know that the x470 will support newer generations.

Ask for local store to bios update for you

Its eeasy trough ryzen master. No need to reboot or go to bios, just adjust voltage and mhz to your cores and you are done

get an msi b450 tomahawk/gaming plus/ a pro MAX

he said he wanted to upgrade in the future. I know that some where in the future b450 does not support newer cpu's. And b450 generally has poorer vram, so if you upgrade pe ready to burn your motherboard. b450 can have poorer ram capapilities and wifi cards, but not in the gih tier ones
