If budget is a priority when it comes to building a cost-effective gaming rig, then one of the best ways to get the most bang for your buck at the moment is with a superb value gaming CPU like the AMD Ryzen 7 5700X3D.  It's pretty easy to pick up an affordable AM4 motherboard, and the cost of some DDR4 RAM won't set you back much either, so a complete gaming rig can be put together for a reasonable cost. 

Hitting its lowest-ever price on Amazon, the AMD Ryzen 7 5700X3D is only $192 right now. With Amazon Prime Day just a few weeks away, now could be a good time to start looking at some of the components needed to build a budget gaming PC and bookmark them on Amazon to see if they go on sale. 

See our review of the Ryzen 7 5700X3D for more details and testing benchmarks on this CPU. The Ryzen 7 5700X3D is fairly close in performance to the popular 5800X3D, the previous best gaming CPU from the 5000-series generation of processors. The 5700X3D is very similar to the 5800X3D in that it also packs eight cores and 16 threads and has the same impressive 3D V-cache vertical design with 96MB of L3 cache, but with slightly less performance.

This is a brilliant offering for the AM4 platform. It offers great gaming performance with eight cores and a large 96MB L3 cache, making it a great CPU choice for constructing a new AM4 PC build with plenty of gaming performance.

The Ryzen 7 5700X3D has a base clock of 3 GHz and a max boost clock of 4.1 GHz. Combined with its 96MB of L3 cache from the stacked 3D V-cache, this is one solid performer when it comes to gaming.

    5600X is budget, used CPU is budget. The 5700X3D is just a good choice over a 5800X3D for giving virtually the same fps but costing less, it's a upgrade CPU to AM4 users who wish to squeeze the last performance of the platform for the next years before changing to DDR5 or DDR6.

    Does the 5700x3d dropping $7 in price really deserve an article in and of itself?
