Even with new tiers of CPUs and GPUs available to purchase right now, availability and pricing aren't on the generous side at the moment. If you're on any kind of budget, you should certainly consider picking up some tried and tested components at a much more sensible price.
Today, AMD's Ryzen 7 5800X3D is only $329 at Walmart. This is the lowest price ever for what is the best-value CPU for gaming that is currently available. What makes this CPU even better is that it can be easily combined with a wide range of AM4 motherboards and affordable DDR4 to make a very high-end gaming rig.
One of the best gaming laptops under $1,500, the HP Victus 15 is a low $479 - with an 8-core 12th Generation Intel i5-12450H processor, Bang & Olufsen audio for its twin speaker setup, a backlit keyboard for low-light gaming, and a decent selection of ports, you get a good amount for the price. However, you may want to upgrade with more RAM, and the included discrete GPU is an older Nvidia GTX 1650, which will struggle to run the latest AAA games on higher settings.
For either your PC or perhaps an upgrade for your PlayStation 5, the 1TB Gigabyte Aorus 7000s Gen4 is only $119 on Amazon. With read speeds of 7000Mb/s and write speeds of 5500Mb/s, this M.2 SSD is fast enough to play all the latest titles and keep load times to a minimum.

Its still $469.00 CDN which to me is still abit expensive I would look at it more closely at $400.
I still have a bit of a concern about giving up ST performance for the extra cache, I do play games on this machine but also do work. And at 3440x1440p the gains will be abit more limited however it still has me curious.
For gaming and lower power stuff, this CPU is unbeatable, to be honest. Too bad it doesn't have an iGPU, but if you're looking for one of the top gaming CPUs in the market to place in a SFF build (like my HTPC), this is it and AMD knows it; well, until they release Ry7K 3D.
