Add 329 for 144hz monitor and add 300 for mouse, keyboard and headset. Reduce ssd to 120gb purely for os, reduce hdd to 1tb. Will probably exceed 2k by abit

Important question is also at what settings on games at what targeted frame rates ?

Because in mid-range, the Ryzen 5 2600 and 2600X are the best bang for buck for a swiss-army-type CPU. Play games, do photo/video editing, the whole kitchen sink etc

Intel i5-8400/8500

But agree with Wataru. It's just simply more worth. R5 2600 has 6c12t as i5 has 6c6t only. AMD can overclock to all cores 4ghz, where as Intel equivalent chip is locked and cannot overclock for better speed. Stock fan given by AMD is much better too. You can do so much more other than gaming with the AMD chip. Get the 2600X variant if you can, more worth, better clocks, better stock fan.

All in all, you get more with what you pay with AMD than Intel.

I'll take overclock 6c12t 4ghz over turbo boost 1c2t 4.1ghz of i5-8500 anytime.

Small sacrifice at gaming, win at everything. Sounds good to me.
