Intel has traditionally led the desktop PC processor market, especially where gaming is concerned. The latest i3, i5 and i7 processors certainly live up to this, delivering plenty of power at a variety of price points. AMD has stepped up its game recently, however, releasing its Ryzen processor line to much critical and commercial success.
Choosing between the brands can be tough, though there are a few general guidelines to help you make up your mind. AMD's Ryzen chips are typically better at multi-core processing, a fact that helps them outperform many Intel CPUs in the latest games. Meanwhile, Intel's processors are usually cheaper and more power-efficient, with higher single-core performance than similarly-priced Ryzen chips.
There's a lot to consider when choosing a suitable graphics card for your new PC. First you need to decide whether you want an Nvidia card or an AMD card, then you have to determine the clock speeds, memory bandwidth and RAM necessary to deliver the kind of performance you're after. To make matters even more confusing, you've got dozens of third-party hardware manufacturers creating their own variants of Nvidia and AMD's graphics cards, tweaking components and adjusting pricing such that your options can seem practically endless.
To demystify this complex process, you'll want to check out our guide to comparing graphics card. It will help you narrow down the kind of graphics card best suited for your needs and budget.
