Where i live i can get the i5-10400f for 170$ but the R5 3600 is 210$. Motherboard prices are also a little bit higher for the AMD side. Basically
i5-10400f
B460 Aorus Pro
16GB 2666mhz memory(because its limited to that speed) all for 350$ ( can even get it for 320$ if i buy the cheapest motherboard)

or
Ryzen 5 3600
16GB 3200mhz memory
The cheapest B450 motherboard that supports 3600 out of the box all for 420$


I have a budget of about 400$
I can even get a
i5-10400f
Gigabyite z490m
16gb of 3200Mhz all for 400$
but i also wanted a new case. If i got the 1st build i would have enough for a case.Is the intel stock cooler sufficient because i cant overclock that i5. Thanks
