I am looking for advice on a pc build. This would be a brand new build and I’m looking to be conservative with the budget but at the same time if it’s make or break in performance then I’d pay the extra price. I’m looking to do a lot of video editing, gaming, and streaming. I have had intel computers my entire life, and I don’t know if the AMD new line is worth it over the price of intel. I am trying to stay under $1500-$2000 but would like to build the best gaming, streaming, and editing computer for the price. Don’t get me wrong, it would be nice not to spend the entire budget but looking to game on a 240hz Alienware moniter. I also don’t want to have to worry about bottle necking, FPS issues, and other issues if possible (I know nothing is perfect and issues can arise.) best performance for the best price, but if someone could assist in whether or not one build max, is going to be justified over a 1500, or below pc. Thanks in advance and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
I take it I will need a new OS but I have the mouse, monitor and keyboard.
Also just curious what is the main difference between the 8700k and the Ryzen? Is the intel going to be better overall or what is the hype about Ryzen?
