AMD’s Ryzen 3 3100 is the minimum CPU to get to get gaming. It has fantastic price to performance. Great for entry to mid-range builds. We have one.

This Intel 10600K CPU is a good choice. Great in gaming. Not as good as the AMD 5000 series.
AMD Ryzen 5 5600X is the newest AMD 6 core/12 thread offering is a better than Intel’s 10600K. Get this if you can find it.
