Which is better Intel 5 or Ryzen 5?

Debating whether which is better, so lets assume I'm going to go i5 9400 and r5 2600?

So it will pair up with a GTX 1650 and a 2x8gb Ram (speed might go for a 2666Mhz or 3200Mhz)

NVME for storage

 

For Gaming and daily use In general

Personally I would not get either
Go for a i5 12400F with a B660 board
or a Ryzen 5 5500/5600 with a B550 board

Whats your budget? Both are quite old and shouldn't really be considered since their price is still high yet they aren't better than similarly priced new stuff.

 

As for between the 2 2600 not a single doubt about it. The 9400 lacks smt (or for intel ht) so it only has 6 threads total. Which is NOT enough for games and it has been struggling to game for years now.

the i3 12100 is better than the i5 9400 and will be cheaper and the msi pro b660m-a is a good motherboard if you want to upgrade to a i5 in the future but if you want to upgrade to  a i9 or i7 then the msi mag b660m mortar is the best budget choice and if you have no plans to upgrade then any motherboard is more than good enough

Not the R5 5500 though. That isn't comparable to a 12400F.

I assume you're in a country that has inflated pricing and little stock not like the "West" like that Jordan guy.

Ryzen 5 2600. More upgrade options down the line and will last you longer, of course depending if you get the right motherboard. Worst case scenario a Zen 3 CPU. Buy the Intel and you're stuck with the 9th gen until you get a new motherboard.

You don't have a choice as you'll be losing out of valuable FPS if your RAM is anything lower than 3200MHz.

The i5-9400 has higher clocks and does better in gaming and lightly threaded apps. The 2600 can handle more concurrent threads so it usually does better in highly multi-threaded apps.

 

The i5-9400 is fine with DDR4-2666. The 2600 will likely do better with faster memory.

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

is this a dream build because you have not replied once, your choice seems to be given very little thought(why would you go with a 9400 if you get get a 12100f for less than the reselling price of the 9400) and you have not mentioned any details like budget, form factor, noise, workloads, or even if you have any parts like the nvme storage or the gtx 1650

Go for the i5 12400F, its pretty decent and good enough.

So technically My budget is small and this question is only debating if which is better because in my country it won't just do if you have a average cash.
Then only this 2 preset is within my budget which is cheap than some, and also is 2nd hand i won't try to afford new one, as this pc is not for long time use i will eventually will buy new pc and will check every recommendation said by everyone. Thanks
