Jimmy Walsh says:

I have a GTX 1050ti graphics card with 8gb RAM. At the moment I have a AMD A8-5500 APU RADEON(TM) HD GRAPHICS processor. I crash all the time in GTA 5 while driving and experience rendering problems on the map. Should I consider buying a new processor? (New to PC gaming tech)

ForSakeN Plays says:

The i5 8400 is 90€ more expensive than the r5 2600 here. No way in going intel.

Sonia Oconnor says:

I decided to buy this gaming CPU, the high reviews and ratings are really convincing what ya’ll think?

Comp Wiz2007 says:

Phenom II x6 1100t clocked to 4.175ghz on water (NOT AIO), Asus Crosshair V 990FX Mobo..  
8gb of Corsair Dominator 2000mhz RAM clocked to 1850MHZ.. Corsair 850 watt PSU (Silver)
(2) Evga GTX 770 4gb Classifieds..  SSD drive for OS and Caviar Black for storage..   The system is mostly 5 years old and shortly i’m upgrading, finally beaking away from AMD after the FX series debacle..   Going intel 8600k, 16gb 3200MHZ and a GOOD motherboard (likely Asus)..   An AMD Ryzen would only save me a total of $50 on my upgrade and since $50 isn’t SH!T to me, i’m leaving AMD and I was AMD CPUs for 12 years (for gaming)..

Jay Rambo says:

How about the i5-8600k. Best bang for ur buck.

Chiefshadow4 says:

92Cope says:

Core i 5 8400 absolute trash of cpu

José Gonçalves says:

Ryzen 5 1600

TheReaper says:

this sucks. i’m not looking to saved money. Why is this video in my search first?
I’m looking for the best CPU for gaming. Say all CPU’s were FREE!! which one would you pick for best FPS performance? I kept searching in google and all I got was stupid VALUE CPU’s and i’m like dammit! VALUE VALUE VALUE!!! not everyone is in welfare you know.

tonkatoytruck says:

You can get a Ryzen 7 1800X for US$239 now. But, the funny thing is. NONE of these processors are a bottleneck in today’s games. I will wait till prices fall before spending too much on a cpu or a graphics card now. I can always upgrade with AMD A4 platform for some time to come.

Mateo Cerovec says:

is i5 9600K better than i5 8600K now?

ChrisTheDud3 says:

I had a razen 5 2600x, I decide to do an upgrade and get an i5 8600k. Best choice ever

Nickos Poblete says:

Rusev? Is that you?

Idtelos says:

Meh, the i7-7700k is still a great cpu that I would still buy if I can find it for around $200-$240 usd.

You Maxim says:

We need a “best” counter

Klson Bob says:

when u bought a second handed ryzen with a pin missing

Deepdale Junior says:

Can every CPU fit in a pc

Overdrive Game says:

Is it true Intel’s main10 should play nicely with pascal cards? I looked up this info on wikipedia.

Shallow Revelations says:

8700k with a r9 290x because 1080ti during crypto boom made gpu too expensive, now RTX is too expensive from the start.

Alborah says:

Should i buy a Ryzen 7 2700X, i have a AMD FX 8320 at the moment.

Jesus MLG says:

what about the i7-8700

Trix says:

I am not really into PC tech, so i will ask here – should i buy I7 8700 or Ryzen 5 2600

AzarReflex says:

How about the i7 6700K????

Noob King says:

Thanks I subbed

m6u3 says:

I just built my wife an entry gaming pc with the 2200g and I am impressed with the vega 8 Integrated graphics. runs pretty nice games like overwatch at 1080 low settings, so may need to tweak some other games to lower resolutions to maintain nice fps, but I am impressed knowing that this little beast is running games without a dedicated gpu. Later i probably buya gtx 1060, so far I am really impressed!

Jay Blankenship says:

Lol I watched a video about best gaming cpus and some child just included i9s and ryzen 7s, those are not best by far

Khalid Hebshi says:

The Ryzen 3 2200G is on the list and not the Ryzen 5 2600X

Mandip Das says:

Can I have 1 of those 8700k? 😀

Alan Ruiz says:

I am thinking of buying this CPU Processor I heard its one of the best at the moment.

Mark Eugine Caderao says:

Can i have those GAMING Video Cards Behind you Sir?

Hardware Unboxed says:

If this is your first time visiting the Hardware Unboxed channel and you’ve quickly jumped to the conclusion that we’re bias towards Intel (Intel fanboys) or even worse paid off by Intel, then I’d encourage you to do a little more research before firing off a comment.

We do our best to be as neutral as possible and look at our benchmark comparisons from as many angles as possible. It should go without saying but I’ll say it anyway, never ever have I (Steve) or anyone associated with the Hardware Unboxed channel taken a dollar from either Intel or AMD, never have and never will. Half the time Intel doesn’t provide us with review samples either, forcing us to buy them.

Hope that’s clear enough.

Ayelo says:

i7 8700k overclocked to 4.9 ghz for gaming, nothing else in 2018, and ryzen for a workshop (threadripper if you can)

Daniel Magalhães says:

That pc is huge holy shit

Jarell says:

My i7-4790k is still super good, i just wish it was able to support nvme m.2. That read/write speed is stupid fast and I need it!

Pavan Sai says:

Which is the best CPU for ”’C S G O’

scooty222 says:

Julian? where is your drink?

spee says:

Just saying you can overclock all most ryzen cpu’s out of the box if you have a mobo that support’s overclocking

Robbie Espinosa says:

IS i5 3550 for 45€ worth it

The RedTengu says:

My i5-2500K ‘N’ 980ti stil working Fine .

Full Entertainment says:

My processor is i5 8600k

DiseaseOfYourMind says:

What type of cpu cooler is spinning in the background?

Tyler DaSilva says:

5:00 to 5:05 is why you’re here.

jordan couturier says:

I’d rather not replace my motherboard for Ryzen. My z170a is still top and even though I do lots of design work and multitasking on my PC, even my i5 6500 handles that amazingly already. If I’m gonna upgrade, it’ll be to an i5 8400 considering they are waaay more powerful and dirt cheap lol.

cjffjgj gjdhxfhd says:

No Ryzen should even be on this list.

wolf gaming says:

What 8th generation intel CPU is best for 1080 p gaming
