Sup! I need help: will I be able to record my screen while playing Fortnite using i5 8400? Or should i buy i7 8700 instead? If i can record 1080 60fps on i5 8400 then I save some 100€ and buy 2070 Super
If I pick i7 8700 I buy 2060 Super
Game is only Fortnite, please do not suggest my any Ryzen
Thanks for attention!
 
Fortnite is very very sensitive to CPU usage and you will have a bad time streaming with the CPU at high framerates no matter if you go with AMD or intel.
You are going to end up using geforce experience for streaming anyway so go with the highest clocks you can afford to keep low FPS as high as possible.
Read around in a few forums about streaming fortnite before you make your decision.
 
Everyone suggests me to go with ryzen. But I do not like it. Even a “Pls dont suggest me any Ryzen’s cpu” sentence doesn’t work
Uh, okay. There is a reason everyone is recommending Ryzen. Not really sure what you dont like about them, but that is fine as it is your money.

If you want to stream, you need more threads. Spend the extra money and go with the 8700.

Which motherboard do you have?
 
6 cores and threads can stream and record decently if you reduce quality and dont expect a great framerate.

The 8700 will perform better.

Why are you against the 3600? It offers simmilar performance to the 8700 for just gaming but the 3600 even better for streaming.


The 3600 is better in almost every scenario.

I got you. Seems like I'm going with i7 8700. Will it's 6 cores and 12 threads give me an opportunity to record my screen 1080 60fps with great framerate? Cuz I'm on 240hz with gsync so fps matters to me.
The reason I don't want Ryzen is that it this case I need a good cooler or maybe watercooling. I wanted to use i7 8700 with it Intel stock fan

Ryzen CPUs come with a very good stock cooler. Much better than the stock Intel cooler on the 8700. You dont need aftermarket cooling if you go Ryzen.

If you wanna use all core 4.3ghz .. Then you might need an aftermarket cooler for better temp!
Or for base clock base clock speed I think it would be okay! Bt not great!

You boys changed my mind. What Ryzen would you recommend me in the ideal case with normal stock fan? I have ~330$ Dont want overlock. Just Fortnite and recording. Ryzen 5 3600? Also I wanted to buy Corsair TX650M gold+ 650W. Will 650W be okay for Ryzen?
 
Is $330 for mobo ram and CPU?

The $329 8-core AMD Ryzen 7 3700x comes with the AMD Wraith Prism RGB cooler. This cooler is actually made by Cooler Master.

The $200 6 core AMD Ryzen 5 3600 comes with the AMD Wraith Stealth cooler.

The $250 6 core AMD Ryzen 5 3600x comes with the AMD Wraith Spire cooler.

Ryzen 3600. A quality 550watt PSU will be plenty. But it wont hurt anything to get the Corsair TXM 650watt either.
Please, can you check my build so far:

GPU: Palit 2070 Super JetStream
CPU: Ryzen 5 3600, 6c/12t (I'll be using it's stock fan)
Motherboard: Gigabyte B450 S2H
PSU: Corsair TX650M Semi 650W Gold+
RAM: Kingston Fury 2x8gb 3200Mhz CL18
Case: Corsair Spec Delta
1tb + 240gb SSD

Monitor: 1080 240hz 25' G-sync

What do you think? Will I be able record my screen 1080 60fps on this CPU?

I know but I cant afford myself something better cuz I'm a schoolboy and I have no more money been working all this summer. Please check what my setup what I've posted

If i buy 2060S - 500$ Ram, board and cpu
If i buy 2070S - 400$ budget
Ryzen fans suggest me ryzen, intel’s - intel
I’m so disappointed i7 8700+2060S or Ryzen 5 3600+2070S
If i pick i7 8700 I’m safe will be recording 1080 60fps But the question is can I do it on Ryzen? If yes I’m saving so much money and buying a 2070S

3600 is the better performing and cheaper cpu.
On tomshardware literally everyone suggests me to go ryzen but to be honest I’m afraid of buying it. Some small twitch streamers that have Ryzen (for example 7 1700) told me that its problematic, inconvenient. And I don’t know how to overlock CPUs properly and setup Bios. So I think i7 8700+2060S is my choice

I think any Ryzen CPU with x at the end have no value since overclocking 200MHz is easy, but since this guy said he won't be overclocking this suggestions have a right to be

There were some issues with the 1st generation Ryzen CPUs when they came out as it was a very different type of CPU that AMD had released in the past. But those days are over now. Those problems were all solved with the 2000 series chips.

Dont get caught up in fan boys on either side of the CPU wars. Look at the data and make a decision for yourself. In the past, buying an AMD CPU was a poor choice. But those days are gone and Intel is in big trouble as AMD CPUs are matching Intel performance at a lower cost. Plain and simple. All of the data shows this for numerous and reputable 3rd party reviewers. Just check out the reviews on the 3600 from Toms Hardware, Techpowerup, Gamers Nexus, Linus Tech Tips, etc and not armature twitch streamers that dont know much about computer hardware.

As for overclocking, in 2019 overclocking is all but dead. The way these CPUs work is they practically overclock themselves. One of the knocks on Ryzen CPUs is they dont have much overclocking headroom. But that is really not a knock because the way the CPUs boost, they are just overclocking themselves. Intel chips do have better overclocking potential, but if you are not gonna OC, then that is even more of a reason to go with a Ryzen chip.

In my opinion, right now the only way to recommend Intel is for someone who wants the absolute best performance, regardless of price or someone who already has an Intel motherboard.

You asked for our advice. Feel free to go whichever way you want. The 8700k is a very good CPU, I know because that is what I have in my gaming rig. But if I were building one today, I would not buy the 8700k.

Thanks for all the replies! I really appreciate it. Would be interesting to hear your opinion: finaly I decided to go with Intel cuz I'm not so smart as you and don't know much about Ryzen and OC. So the quastion is: Whats better fit to me i5 9400/i5 9500+2070Super or i7 9700+2060Super for Fortnite fps? All low 240hz. And i've heard that fortnite is cpu sensitive game.

Motherboard: Gigabyte B360M DV2
PSU: Corsair TX650M 650W Gold+
Ram: HyperX Fury DDR4, 2x8GB, 2666MHz, CL16
Case: Corsair Spec Delta
HDD: Western Digital 1tb - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX
SSD: Samsung 850evo 250gb
