1300X o_Oo_Oo_O

Thats an intersting pick.

Wonder how you arrived at that.
It doesn't bottleneck the GFX at 1080p. Looked up quite a few reviews on youtube and other sites. What other processor which is better than this is available close to 10k or under?

Oh, and BTW, there is no 1050Ti 3GB

There is a 1050 3 GB and a 1050 Ti 4GB



AMD was, therefore, faster in HandBrake, PCMark 10's photo editing test and Cinebench and wasn't far off Intel in Ashes of the Singularity and Fallout 4 either. In this light, for a general purpose system, AMD would get my vote with the Ryzen 3 1300X. However, for a purely gaming system, you'd have to go with Intel given the lead the Core i3-8100 has at a near-identical price point.
