[SOLVED] Ryzen 5 5000 series vs Ryzen 9 3000 series

Apr 16, 2021
Which CPU is better for gaming on max settings ? I won't be using it for anything else. I've done a ton of research but I just can't figure it out, there too many terms that I don't know what they are. I got the impression that more than 8 cores is overkill for gaming. I'll get the most expensive GPU that I can afford, which should the best or 2nd best,(not counting the $3000 ones.)

Thank you very much for your help.
