I3 10100f 4c8f or i5 9400f 6c

Simply at the current prices and stocks one of the 2 will be going in a budget 1080p gaming systems.

Main games.
Squads, new cod, gtav

If you're buying into a new platform anyway, then I'd rather have the 10100, but if it's never to be upgraded, then the lows will be better on the 9400 in the more demanding games.

The performance difference is negligible, so I would go for the i3. The 100f is cheaper and the supporting hardware is more future-proof.

I currently have the 10100f and think it's a great cpu especially for the price... I wil upgrade at some point but for now it's fine

I used to to have ryzon 3100 and tbf in a second pc I never noticed a problem when gaming so I thought the i3 would be fine but wasn't 100%
