+1 in this case you're even better off with Athlon 200GE then xD.. But i5 9600k is also an APU :O except with a shit iGpu
2018-10-22 15:18
if you have no gpu just get the 2400g

if you dont have video card you need to get RYZEN 5 2400G theres no other option, Vega card in this APU is really good. Its enough to play csgo on 1920x1080 on over 60 frames per second

Comparing apple with pears. i7 vs i5 Ofc the 8700k is better than a never gen's i5. The 8700k is much more expensive than 9600k. around 100 Euros

Hardware prices seems to be just going up. I guess it's good deal as far as it isn't completely terrible pricing.

Overpriced junk, you get Ryzen 2700 for 2 more cores and almost 3x threads for the same price along with the ability to OC on a mid-range mobo, It's not even worth for Intel purists, as i5 8400 and i7 8700 are much better deals. Intel is completely desperate, don't ever buy anything new from it that's not 8th Core gen, just not worth at all because they're releasing refreshes over refreshes only for the sake of marketing.

i'm looking for i7 8700 too, both same price but i7 8th gen seem a bit better in benchs I saw, and yes I saw R5 APU running CSGO over 150fps (1024x768 low settings) which is amazing for an CPU, but I wanna buy a dedicated video card before, so I think the Intel would be greater for my case, but i'll see what my pocket can do and maybe i'll go for the Ryzen. do you have a ryzen?

I don't, but Ryzen are undeniably much better on overall domestic use and long-term cost & benefits. R5 2400G can tackle low-res CSGO just fine, but prolonged intensive iGPU usage puts too much strain on a entry-level mobo, so an dedicated GPU is definitely needed for a hardcore gamer no matter the game. Whether AMD x Intel is better for gaming depends on the games played, resolution used and the desired FPS range. Old games, e-sports games, and over 60 FPS at Full HD or lower resolutions are factors that favors Intel because the Core architecture favors blazing fast single core processing speed. On the other hand, playing on 1440p or 4K, massive open-world games and streaming heavily benefit AMD, because Ryzen emphazises parallel processing by sharing tasks among a large number of cores and threads. CS:GO definetly favors Intel as it's an old and simple game, which runs on DX9 while we're at DX12. But I definitely recomend Ryzen anytime instead because it's CPUs and mobos are better priced than Intel counterparts, the AM4 chipset will still be used up until 2020 and is future proof because parallel processing is a heavily trending among all OS and software developers, which regarding games will allow DX12 to surpass far and away DX11 on the recent and upcoming CPUs.

I have ryzen 5 1600 oced to 3.8 ghz (which is pretty obainable even with an unlucky chip) and it never dips below 200 and for the most part is 300 fps. So if you are looking for a cpu for csgo it should be more than enough.
2018-10-24 12:59
Yeah, if you want to buy an intel cpu for gaming right now its kinda the 8700K or locked 8700, from what ive seen its around 3% slower on average in games to the 9900K and half the price :()
2018-10-23 23:55
yea so im saving up to buy a good PC. I dont really know anything about them just i need a good graphics card to get better fps? if you know any PC's that are good id sure appreciate the help. thanks

GPU is the primary factor for FPS rate, but it always need to make a proportionate pair with the CPU in order to use the full potential of both components. For CS:GO and other old/e-sports games, an entry-level rig like i3 8100+GTX 1050 is enough and my recommendation. But if you want to play newer open-world games in Full HD, then the investment starts getting heavy, with i5 8400 or R5 2600 along with RX 580 or GTX 1060 and 16 GB of DDR4 as standard choices. Just keep in mind that high FPS rates taxes the CPU a lot too, so overclocking CPU and GPU alike is pretty much required in order to get more firepower while avoiding increasing your hardware needs standards.

Ok thanks

right now a ryzen 5 2600 is very cheap! and is a great chip to be had. but if you want to game without a graphics card, go for the ryzen 5 2400g, with is great for light gaming .

2018-10-23 23:53
yeah hyperthreading is horrible for csgo :D

which amd cpu you have?
2018-10-26 02:21
r5 1600 I´m not saying amd is better, Intel is clearly the leading cpu manufacturer but they have douchebag prices.
