Hi!

Im going to buy a new pc next month, but I still have doubts about it, I was planning to go to:

Motherboard: ASRock B365M Pro4
CPU: I5 9400F
GPU: RTX 2060
PSU: Seasonic focus gold 650W

Now I heard a lot that ryzen is cheaper and better so I searched the internet and saw that the R5 2600 is way better than the 9400F in pretty much all games and even better than the I5 9600K in some games, In my country (Belgium) I can get the ryzen 2600 for 130 euros. Now I want to know if someone recommends me to let intel go and go for ryzen maybe the R5 3600. And also can you recommend me a motherboard below 100 euros?

Motherboard requirements:
M.2 slot
Micro ATX (For the CoolerMaster Q300P case)
4 DIM SLOTS

Thanks a lot!

Yes I would recommend the Ryzen 5 2600 over the i5 9400f. Choose any b450 motherboard that fits your requirements.
Thanks!
I also have another question actually. I can buy the rx 5700 8gb for 350 euros would it be better than the rtx 2060 I do not care about ray tracing at all

Yes AMD have pretty much caught up Intel in gaming and surpassed them in productivity.
A couple of boards: (They also support the new Zen2 3000 chips)
MSI B450M Mortor
Gigabyte B450 Aorus M

Thank you I really appreciate your help, Would the RX 5700 work on a b450 motherboard as well?

If you do go for a RX 5700, I would personally wait for the non-reference boards to come out. The blower coolers on the reference models are generally a bit hot/noisey. If you can afford to wait until mid-august that is.

Edit: Although the RX 5700 seems to fare better with the reference cooler than the 5700 XT, especially if you undervolt.
