I am one of the people who have been using Intel for their whole life on their computers/laptop. I have never used an AMD PC before. But I find it weird how AMD CPUs are double the cores/threads than Intel ones and are much cheaper. So I'm really unsure about which to buy.
I planned a while ago on upgrading my PC to a 8th gen MOBO (cause the one I have supports 6th/7th) with an i3-8100 cpu which would satisfy my needs. Some people however recommended me to get AMD Ryzen 5 2600 with a B450 M
I just need my PC to play a couple games which aren't very high-end, such as Apex Legends. And calling with people on ******* at the same time and that's pretty much what my maximum would be. I'm not going to edit videos or use Autodesk apps or such stuff. Just a little gaming.
Going to add my old GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with it.
Thanks for reading all this, your opinion would be really appreciated.

edit: just seen a thread about this but people seem to have different opinions, so i would prefer more clarification on which one is the best for gaming
I had a very bad experience with AMD, so I have to say Intel.
It depends a lot on what you gonna use it. AMD has lots of threads and cores which makes them really good for workstations, for gaming... Umm... you won't notice much difference if you don't play anything demanding really... At the end of the day if its for very casual use and nothing too demanding you can go with what you are more comfortable with, in this case Intel.
hmmm.... I would recommend going for intel I mean for quite some games they actually run awesome and mainly for desktop use but the downfall for it is that its expensive,amd on the other hand is powerful and like a low budget cpu I would recommend going for a ryzen 5 3600x its 3.7ghz and turbo4.4 ghz I would highly recommend it as I've had experience with many cpus and r5 3600x is pretty much the best for all games bt when it comes to desktop it does preform a little lower but the positive its cheap like a really good price the 3600x risen 5 retails around 150 and its normally 400 so hurry up why wait buy it.
like if I helped you out but only if I helped you.lol
