building my first pc and plan on 3d modeling and animating in 3ds max. Also for gaming and basic video editing. I'm deciding between an i5 7500 or an amd ryzen 5 1600. Which one would be better.
>>571263Bitch is you serious, get the Ryzen
>>571270You can do like me and buy a used 1700 and an open box x370 board. Paid 300 for both but I had the ram etc sitting around from a 6700k build I never finished. Only thing that sucks is the pcie lanes. Three 1080ti's running at 8x/8x/4x kind of slows rendering down.
>>571263get the i5
http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-7500-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-1600/3648vs3919For the multi-core performance Ryzen is better, and for any other stuff they are the same.I am an Intel fan, but theres no reason not to go for amd here.
