    I would like to point out a few reasons why to me, Intel is the definite winner. Start up, motherboard, an h410 would allow you to run the CPU with no problem what so ever and it's half the price, yes you strip yourself of some stuff but, half the price. Second, totally ignoring the F series which can sometimes be SIGNIFICANTLY(as much as 40$ that I have seen) lower than their ordinary version, since we use a dedicated GPU, it's pointless to get the 10100 if you note upgrade path, I can confirm an h410 here is happily running a core i5 10400f and I can even bet a 10700 would not be impossible if you decide to do so in the future. That card they used is aimed towards high-end 1080p and mostly 1440p gaming which considering who would build a pc with budget parts, a 1080p setup is far more logical and at 1080p you can set for a 1060 used(about 150-200$ in my country) or a 1070 used most priced at 300$ and they will be more than enough for a good gaming experience at 1080p. Overall all thing considered, opting for 1080p and intel can save you nearly as much as half the price of the build especially if you find used deals, for example I've seen an h410+10100+8gb combo going for as low as 160$ used and they usually have remaining warranty where as used Ryzen is a rare sight, a lot scenarios depend on your country's second hand market. I am not saying Ryzen 3 is bad in any way, in fact, if you're fine spending that extra cash, opting for Ryzen will undoubtedly give better upgrade path and in some cases better performance. If you got so far down reading, as a closure, you can't go wrong with either CPU and it all depends on how tight is your budget and what you want to opt in for.

    Just go AMD with the Ryzen 5 3400G. It comes with a GPU Vega 11 wich on low games from 2020 before that can run at 30-50 FPS. And even more if you go 720P. A PC with that Ryzen and 16GB of RAM can go about 550 dollars tops.

    Nvidia could use arm and break contract and just start making cpu's... Meanwhile same old videos about amd and Intel repeatedly are hashed over. It's less and less exciting. But at least they keep making components that fight against the last generation for less and less of an actual performance gain. Good times. But But... overclocking on low end and gen 4 m.2 and cpu gpu access and petematreplp... Listen I see 2 frames over one in a series of years that's enough time to maybe make a leap in development. Wait AMD did that? Intel is still confused and forgot what is reality? K.

Not gonna say anything about how he gets a 10100/3100 for a 5700xt. The 3100 is also weaker than the 10100, so I got no clue how in Dirt that AMD build got more FPS.
