You can get the 10700 for £324. It clocks faster, has better thermals and has 16 threads instead of 8. For the extra £25, it's probably better going for that if you desperately want a great gaming CPU.

A 10600k is also £260. Less cores, more threads and will clock higher.

Wait for desktop Ryzen 4000 , they'll be better value for money IMO

Ryzen always better for value BUT for purely gaming Intel still have the lead
If ryzen wasn't released I would have went back to console lol. I used to spend on fortune on intel parts

Why? I had my last Intel CPU for 5 years. You must have made poor purchasing decisions.

AM4 has been going for 3 CPU generations, soon to be 4. Maybe that's what they meant

Not entirely true. Some AM4 motherboards are not compatible with some AM4 CPUs.

Most are. Now if you bought a max board, it might not support older CPU's but that's not the problem.
Comparable performance from an AMD 3600 for half the price.. you could afford a new decent AMD motherboard and still have money left over. I guess this might be good if you already have a super expensive Intel motherboard and can't take 10th gen.
Only looking to see the AMD fan boys take over the thread!

Shall I go for i7 or Razen 3900?

Right now? Safe bet is neither, unless you desperately need it.

Unless you specifically need 12 cores, you should avoid the 3900.

My plan is to make a good gaming pc. Not sure how to start with, if you can recommend a good configuration I would go for that. My question is which mb fits best with which processor. This will help me a lot.

The gaming PC you build depends entirely on your monitor.

If you have a 1080p 60hz monitor, then you can go down a very budget route - A Ryzen 3300X, 16GB of RAM, B450 motherboard and anything from a 1660 Super to a 2060.

If you have or plan to have a 1440p 120hz monitor then that changes things and the prices start to spike. Probably best off with i5-10600k/3700X and something like a 2070 Super.

As for motherboard compatibility

Ryzen 2000 - B450
Budget Ryzen 3000 - B450 Max
High Ryzen 3000/4000 - B550

For intel 10th gen - Z490

If you give me a budget and resolution I can try make you a parts list if you like

I would only disagree about the CPU Aspect.
A 3700X will comfortably be handled by a regular B450 Board. You don't need a max. If you get a Top End MSI B450 Board, you don't even need a Max when you upgrade to the 4000 Series in the future (If you so choose to upgrade when they are released). If you were instead to choose any old B450 board, then you would want the Max to allow for a 4000 Upgrade.
Overall point - Pick the right B450 Board, and it will handle 4000 CPU Series in the future.

Personal opinion is B550 is overkill unless you really want to pay premium for a very negligible amount of gain. Just my 2 cents, feel free to disagree

The only reason I suggest a Max is because of bios issues. A regular B450 board might not be Ryzen 3000 ready and it makes life easier for Swarna.

There's some decent B550 boards available for £110-120 now (Same price as the B450 Tomahawk Max!) and I think their prices will only drop even more.

Useful feedback, thanks

Hi
Many thanks for your help. I have a budget of 800.00 pounds max. My plan is to make a good gaming pc. My intention is to build a high end pc with good mb.
I was thinking about this
MSI AMD Ryzen X570 MAG TOMAHAWK WIFI AM4 PCIe 4.0 ATX mb, goes with your suggested processor and ram. Later I will put graphics card when I get enough money. Initial idea is to check the performance of processor and mb, I may be wrong but you can give me a idea of how to deal with it.
Also, you can suggest me Intel based configuration.
