>R5 2600/X - Good gaming & multithreaded work use CPUs
>i7-9700k/8700k - If you have a $2000+ budget and don't care that it'll be superseded by 7nm CPUs next year
>R7 2700/X - Best value high-end CPU on a non-HEDT platform
>Wait for R7 3700X - Surely the best overall and not a massive disappointment like the 9900k

I build my PC with - intel pentium g4560 and I can run games 60fps on med or high settings
- 8gb ram
-gtx 1050ti 4gb


I'd also recommend looking at used parts if you have a lower budget. Old intel cpus for the sandy and ivy bridge range go for quite cheap now and DDR3 prices are also dam good.

If you look on sites like ebay or Aliepress you can find Xeons for really good prices. Take the 2011 platform, the 1650 goes for around 100 USD with similar performance to the R5 1600 or the 2660 v2 for 110, which offers 10 cores though has a low clock. Theses coupled with some cheap ECC DDR3 can provide a relatively cheap entry level productivity or gaming system depending on what you get. Be warned on what motherboard you get though, as the cheaper ones on Ali/ebay can be rife with issues.
