both are overkill for csgo I guess
but Intel is all the way for gaming
Intel for gaming
AMD for working with multicore programs(streaming,recording,etc.)
Also depends on your budget.
And if you don't have a big budget AMD ryzen Zen 2 is really close to Intel CPU now
intel for just gaming amd if u do alot of stuff plus game
all 3 hardware are overkill
Get a 2600/2600x... its cheap, great for streaming, great for gaming (but not that good as 8700k)..
intel is better for games
ryzen for hard programmes
AMD literally sucks ass, I have an intel CPU and it doesn't go over 40-45c, while the graphics card which is AMD goes up to 80c
im ryzen user and i can recommend it but if you want best performance and you are not interested in streaming or something then go for intel and btw dont buy x1800 its not worth go for ryzen 7 1700 since its basically same thing but its cheaper and you got decent stock cooler enough for OC i have ryzen 1700 with stock cooler oc to 3.8 and everything is fine :)

Now you know which one is for you.
Intel >>>> AMD in terms of gaming in FULLHD/2k. However, it's the same on higher resolutions, especially 4k where it's all about GPU.
Overall, 8700k is better, if you don't need montage, faster render operations etc. then it's a perfect choice. There is no point in buying Ryzen 7 when you are a gamer, i doubt you play in 4k tho.
P.S. Both are good for streaming, 6 cores and 12 threads are enough, no need to go 8/16 with ryzen there.
Intel cuz higher singlecore speed
But if you ask for gaming I would recommend a i5 8600k - this will save you some money if you dont need the extra cores
amd will always give you more bang for the buck
lol, people still believe in AMD after another Ryzen failure
Ryzen 2700X for sure, don't bother with the 1800X
8700k is best processor for games rn
just ryzen 1700 and you will fly with a lot of fps
If all you care about is csgo go for the i7, the ryzen cpu's are for the creator gaming user, like streamers, content creators etc.
Intel = games
AMD = everything
Either, you can just cut a soda can into the shape of a cpu and CSGO would run fine.
i7-8700k all the way LUL forget ryzen
intel = gaming
amd = everything else
both are fine but intel one is better for gaming still I suppose so would also expect this to be the case for CS:GO
8700k is undoubtedly the best gaming chip on the market rn, everyone that said the ryzen is better for rendering hasn't looked at benchmarks - they both are in the margin for error in premier property rendering.
So unless you stream, where 4 extra threads would actually be more useful than the frequency you gain from going with the 8700k you should take the i7 for sure. You have to consider that the tim on the 8700k is pulled from a pile of garbage though, so delliding would do you good if you want to make sure you can push it to 5+GhZ(almost all can do 5, anything above comes down to silicon lottery)
