Looking to buy a new pc after 8 years, picking between AMD and Intel + other feedback

Budget (including currency): €2500

Country: Netherlands

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: No specific games, could be old, could be modern AAA. Besides that maybe casual video editing/streaming but that shouldn't affect the parts.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): My main monitor is a Gigabyte Aorus 1440p144 so high frame rate is preferred but I don't think that will be an issue. I also have two hard drives I'm going to put in from my old computer.

 

I'm looking to buy a new PC. I have two possible builds, one AMD based, another Intel based. I haven't really kept up with hardware these past few years so feedback is appreciated.

 

AMD Parts:

CPU: Ryzen 9 5900X - €439

Motherboard: MSI MPG X570S EDGE MAX - €279 (Other motherboards are fine.)

Total: €718 + €1566,90 = €2284,90

 

Intel Parts:

CPU: i7-12700K - €455

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Elite DDR4 - €245 (Other motherboards are fine.)

Total: €700 + €1566,90 = €2266,90

 

Shared parts:

CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i - €132 (Others are fine.)
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB 2x16GB 3200mhz CL16 - €139,95 (Others are fine.)
Storage: Samsung 980 Pro 1TB,4.0 NVMe - €159 or Samsung 980 Pro 1TB,3.0 NVMe - €124 (Don't know if the difference between 4.0 and 3.0 matters much. Other SSDs are fine too, I just picked the first one.)

Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080, Gaming OC V2 - €879 (Other models are fine, but this is the cheapest RTX 3080 available.)

Power Supply: Corsair RM850x 850W - €149,95

Case: Fractal Design Define C - €107

Total: €1566,90

 

Thank you for reading.

I'd go Intel. Better performance in games, similar performance outside of gaming and better upgradeability. 

 

I don't recommend Corsair memory, they have some binning issues which 12th gen Intel and Ryzen are sensitive for. This should be better if you don't mind the white color, otherwise this.

 

There's no PCIe 3.0 980 Pro, I'm assuming that's just a regular 980 which is trash. This SSD will perform sligthly better than a 980 Pro while being cheaper.

 

This 3080 is cheaper and will perform just as good.

 

The Fractal Design Ion Gold 850w is also a great PSU, and it's much cheaper.

 

If you don't mind going for an air cooler this one is good. I don't recommend Corsair AIO's because their price/performance isn't amazing.

Overpriced (garbage), same for board choice

Something with the same performance for less, alternative parts wise you can cut cost by changing board to a b660 ds3h and cooler to mugen 5

Source? I thought corsair rams were only an issue for older ryzens and older rams cause something to do with incompatible subtimings, just need to make sure if its aviodable or not via manually setting timings yourself

It hasn't really been tested or anything, but I just hear too many people having problems with this RAM not running at rated speed and requiring extra voltage. Also if you search on Google ram not running at rated speed most people with these problems have Corsair ram. This could also be because they are very popular kits, but I don't want to recommend something that may not work well.

 

Edit: It is on the QVL of the Z690 board, so I expect it to be fine, but op could still get something else just to be safe.

corsair is pretty damn popular brand so im not surprised, theyre rams arent exactly good value other than theyre rgb stuff which is surprisingly cheap

 

In that case ill just assume this to be a convenience issue as its most likely mitigated by just manually setting timings though at that point may aswell ram oc
