I'm thinking of building a new PC and using a big part of my budget on the CPU. AMD or Intel? I'm eyeing the Ryzen Pro and the i9.

At the end of the day what you gonna use it for? More work related stuff, then Ryzen, more gaming then intel. Ya spending big on the CPU is probably a good idea, since they tend to last the longest compared to a GPU.

Intel for gaming. I'd just get a 8700k over an i9 but that's your call.

I just went from a FX 8320 CPU too a Ryzen 1700x and you will be surprised at the performance.

Assassins Creed Origins on my 8320 was 100% on my 1700x it's 34%.

Ryzen 1700x $279.
Intel 8700k $400+

With a Ryzen build you can get a Rx 580 and a 1700x cpu for almost the cost of the 8700k.

Stupid DRM hurting the CPU.

Ryzen CPUs easily compete with Intel even though Intel may be a tad bit faster but they are also majorly overpriced and not worth it at this point in time.

Are you willing to pay near double the costs in favor of 10fps in certain games? If yes, go with Intel. Otherwise save your cash with Ryzen and put it towards a better GPU/SSD/etc.
