    "I was building my very first PC and I was having a hard time deciding whether to go with an Intel processor or AMD. I must say that I am glad I chose to go with AMD. The Ryzen is ridiculously fast. All my applications load so fast."

    "AMD SenseMI technology with intuitive machine intelligence. It does need a dedicated graphics card like a A series chip. The Wraith Spire Cooler is ok for some overclocking. An addional cooler is needed only if you overclock more than 60 Celcius. Monitor capacity is on the GPU and should definitely handle 3 monitors. "

    "The Intel BX80684I38350K 8th Gen Core i3-8350K Processor is an okay processor for gaming. It's not all that powerful, but will be able to run a few games for the light gamer. It's pretty affordable, but the performance just isn't there. I highly recommend looking at the i7 processors or even the AMD Ryzen series if you're looking into getting a great processor for gaming."

    "A good processor for everyday use and fairly powerful for its price range, it just isn't a gaming processor. I used it to build a spare media PC, but it's not in my gaming machine and I wouldn't recommend using it for one. "
