it depends on whether u're gay or not
Go for Ryzen, way cheaper and it's worth it
depends if you are going to stream or not
If you wouldn't streaming just go for i5-9600k.
why would you need a new cpu, i5 6500 is enough for csgo
For CSGO hyperthreading doesn't improve framerate, therefore i7 won't help. i5-8400/8500/9600/9600(k) are best suited choices for CSGO, but will require buying new motherboard. You can also get k version of i5 for your system and overclock it. Or if you conceive playing anything else or doing anything more than just CSGO, then Ryzen 5 2600 and above can be a better deal.
What's the point of having 300 fps+ ? Having 160 is enough for 144hz monitor
Wait until Ryzen 3000 is out. Then decide. Everything else is pointless.
And if you go for Intel, this time buy fucking "k" version. Im running my 2500k@5ghz and its from 2011. 300fps in GO.
Remember if you upgrade to one of the newer CPU's you will need to buy DDR4 ram as well as a new motherboard, DDR3 doesn't work with the newer CPU's
depends on how much you can put on. For csgo ONLY go for Intel. Replacing a CPU can sometimes leads to create a new pc, bcs your motherboard isn't working/ or just too bad with the new CPU. New Motheboard can lead to new ram and GPU aswell.
To make it simple , ryzen is generally better for multitasking , i7 better for gaming.
You won't get 300+ with Ryzen, probably something like 270+ with overclocked 2700X.
Wait for Zen 2 (Ryzen 3xxx) or buy i7-8700k.
just built my son a new gaming rig not long ago...8700k...MSI 2080...Gigabyte Z370 Aorus...well over 300+fps...im an Intel fan so i say go Intel...
Wait till May/June for Ryzen 3000.
dont go for ryzen, intel is the way
Of course if you want 300+ fps you should go with Intel. I5 8600k/9600k for the best performance/value or i7 8700k If you find a good price. In both scenarios you'd need to buy a good CPU cooler and of course a good motherboard(z370 chipset for 8th gen or z390 for 9th gen), because overclocking up to 4.9/5Ghz might be required to reach constant 300+ fps.
Depends of your budget
Intel always beats ryzen at gaming, but only by 10-30fps depending of the game
How much do you want to spend?
i built a system for my friend with a ryzen 5 2600 and a gtx 1060 he gets 400fps average
I7 8086K for 5ghz single core which is the only thing this shit game can use 😎😎
if you have Z mobo (z170/z270) - go for 6700k/7700k you will not see difference withj 8700k in csgo. Anyway gpu will bottnecking anywhere)
if you want the best bang for your buck so to say go with Ryzen. It is on par with 8700k and its way cheaper.
intel CPUs will give you more FPS in games. With Ryzen CPUs you can have more porn on the desktop without lag, while playing games
take your pick.
that depends on what you wanna do. Only gaming i should give you the advice to go for an Intel processor. Do you also wanna edit some shizzle and run more than just one heavy complication at the time ---> go for ryzen. their multitreathing in combination with a few more cores than just 2 or 4 this should be fine.
if you are going for either an i7 of ryzen 7 you should always get +350 fps
Ryzen 7 or Core i7-8700 will take it easy
Wait for Ryzen 3 coming in a few months, you gonna have a R5 3600x with i9 9900k performance for like 250 € more or less
I have the 9700k and i never go under 300 with an old gtx 770 2gb.
Its a good CPU So I cant see why you would want to change it. The potential performance gain you can get does not justify the cost
Dont listen to anyone else, go with i7. Can't go wrong with it esp for cs.
if you have 6500, then you propably dont have a z-chipset, so you can upgrade to i7 6700 non-k.
I would rather buy a very good ryzen board (crosshair VII hero has so overkill vrm that it's almost a sin to use it to anything but LN2) and the cheapest cpu, wait for ryzen3000 (july) and then upgrade. they'll be better than anything intel has to offer right now. if that's not possible for you, change the platform to z370/z390 and buy 8700k or 9700k
their performance is pretty much the same (when overclocked to 5ghz, which is possible on both, until you're extremely unlucky and have bought a horrible sku), the 9700k runs cooler because of sTIM instead of 8700k's paste-based TIM, but you can delid 8700k while it's enormously more difficult with 9700k.
it depends on what you'll be doing besides of playing csgo. If your workload is thread-dependent (for example editing vids), you'll benefit from 8700k's hyperthreading. If not, the extra 2 cores of 9700k will give you an edge of maybe 5 fps in the more demanding games
I think an I7 - 8th gen should be enough. I have AMD 2700X and it works wonderfully.
i5-9600k or i7-9700k, depends no your budget
ryzen for games xDD
dont do that
Wait for the Ryzen 3000 series and go for those, they will destroy intel in both performance and pricing.
Get a B450 Motherboard, Ryzen 5 2600X (or not x version if youre on budget) and 16 Gigs of cheap DDR4 3000ish RAM and youre fine
what ever you do dont choose AtrashMD
The newest ryzen is insane, i use it with gtx 1060
Weird combo but powerfull
Wait few months for Ryzen Zen 2. Atm it isn't worth.
ryzen 5 2600 or ryzen 7 2700x would be fine.
I'd say go with the ryzen 5 or 8700k if you won't stream, depends on the budget
ryzen is cheaper but i7 is way better
If the only thing you do is gaming you should get intel for sure. i5 9600K would be perfect
9700k , 8700k , Or Ryzen 2700x with 3400mhz ram but i not recomand
but if u hav oportunity for second hand 7700k or 8600k its 300fps + too
i5 8600k for gaming i7 8700k if you want to stream and game
You have 300hz monitor? :D
Wait for ZEN2 (Ryzen 3XXX)
If you want to have great gaming pc, you need to upgrade you GPU too. If you need a workstation like rendering, and stuff, definitely go for ryzen.
