How to choose the best Intel Processor for my PC?
Work out your budget
There are a few things to consider when setting a budget for your PC. The first is what you will be using the PC for. If you are only going to use it for basic tasks like browsing the internet and checking email, then you won't need to spend as much as someone who plans on using their PC for gaming or video editing.
Another thing to consider is how often you plan on upgrading your Intel Gaming PC. If you only plan on upgrading every few years, then you can afford to spend more on each individual upgrade. However, if you want to keep your PC up-to-date with the latest technology, then you'll need to budget accordingly.
Finally, consider any other peripherals or accessories that you may need. These can include things like a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. If you already have these items, then they don't need to be factored into your budget. However, if you don't have them yet, then be sure to add them into the mix.
What will you be using the PC for?
The best Intel processor for your PC depends on what you'll be using it for. If you're a casual user, you'll probably be fine with an Intel Core i3 or i5 processor. If you're a power user or gamer, you'll need an Intel Core i7 or i9.
Will Core Speed or No of Cores be more beneficial?
Depending on what you will be using your PC for can have an effect on what Intel CPU will be best for you. Some tasks / software perform best with a processor that has the fastest single core speed. Some can take advantage of multiple cores.
