1440p Build

Hi Guys!

 

I know that intel is generally better but I just want some input, I am considering ryzen due to the fact that I have run into a small $$$ issue regarding my build.

 

Here are the two lists I have decided on. All input is appreciated but please remember I am trying to save money where I can. (I know I have a 1080p monitor but I am getting a 1440 I just wanted the price to be around that range due to where I work I can get a 1440p for about 150-170)

I would definitely go with the amd build, especially if you're on a budget and since you are comparing the 1700x to a 7700k. The performance difference is not that wide

PC: CPU: i5-9600k - CPU Cooler: be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 - GPU: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 - Motherboard: ASRock - Z370 Extreme4 - RAM: Team - T-Force Delta RGB 16 GB DDR4-3000 - PSU: Corsair - TXM Gold 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply - Case: Thermaltake - Core G21 TG

not particularly if I go with a 2700x for example I would only be scraping maybe 50-70 off of my total price which are margins that aren't big enough for me to choose ryzen over intel

Then I recommend going Intel and switching to the 8700k, or 8600K, and a z370. Although if necessary the 2700x is still a fine gaming chip.

I have looked at that before and that would be an extra $350 plus dollars I don't have to spend that's my main reason for ryzen if it  wasn't for the $$$ I would get intel

Then how about the 8400 or 8500? Also I just realized that ml120 is going to struggle with a 1700x, though the 1700x does come with a cooler (so does the 8700, 8600, 7700, 7600, 8400, 8500, and all other non k intel variants.)

motherboards are much more expensive for intel and also I'd prefer a k due to overclocking but it is definitely something to look into

If you are seriously going to OC you are going to want a beefier cooler.
