Which PC do I need to buy? AMD or INTEL?

Nov 9, 2021
Hi guys, I am looking to buy a new gaming pc and I don't know which its better.

I like play shooters or also sometimes FIFA but I need your opinion. My budget goes from $2.000 to $3.000
I am thinking of putting together two budgets. One for AMD and one for INTEL, I would like you to leave your opinion on that and change some components if necessary.

First I would like if you make your opinion about this PC, and then I will post the INTEL budget

- RYZEN 7 3700X
- Mother ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming AM4 PCIe Gen4 WiFi Dual M.2
- RAM GeiL DDR4 16GB 3000MHz Orion RGB Black
- SSD Team 1TB 560MB/s T-Force Delta Max White
Curious what power supplies are listed, I tried to tab through the pages but it seems to get stuck on cases.

not a lot of choices on GPU page and he may not have the cash for a 6700 xt which is next choice up from his GPU on page
Is this budget in USD, CAD, matters a lot?

I would seriously wait a little while until W11 is patched better, or possibly even W10, for Alder Lake support, and start with a 12,600K. You will get best performance with DDR5 RAM though, which could take some waiting as well for prices to drop. There ARE however some Z690 MBs that support both DDR4 and DDR5 though, which is the model of board you need for Alder Lake.

It's just a little too soon to time a build right now. Best to go with the latest and greatest after things are sorted out and prices stabilize.
