Best CPU for gaming in 2021 for your budget

That’s right! It is time to start shopping for options to upgrade your PC’s performance for gaming. However, there are so many ways to boost your machine that you could easily get intimidated without proper guidance.

Today, we are going to focus specifically on enhancing your PC’s performance with CPUs. Depending on your budget, you need to know the best options for your specific needs.

No spared expenses: The best CPU for gaming on the market

Core i7-8700K

The Core i7-8700K, simply put, is the king of gaming CPUs right now. If you have an extra $350 bucks lying around waiting to be spent and you genuinely need the most powerful CPU for your games, don’t waste any time. Go ahead and bag this one if you can find it.

Notable specs and details:

  • Comfortable 4.7 GHz on all cores; manual overclock at 5 GHz
  • Intel’s low latency Ring Bus architecture
  • Great for more demanding gaming and most productivity
  • Has been reported to run hot
  • Expensive compared to other options on the market

Modest PC build budget: The best affordable option of gaming CPUs

Core i5-8400

For the most part, you shouldn’t have any problem running most of the games released in the last few years using the Core i5-8400. Even more demanding games run without many hiccups in frame rates, which is an essential part of the gaming experience.

Many gamers would agree that 720p isn’t that bad when you have 60fps as an alternative to, say, 8K resolution and 24fps.

Notable specs and details:

  • Best gaming performance in its class if a dedicated graphics card runs with it
  • Multi-thread performance is strong compared to other CPUs
  • Most affordable 6-core in the Coffee Lake series
  • It does require a new motherboard
  • Overclocking doesn’t warrant much gains

Feet-wet budget: The best entry-level option for gaming CPUs

AMD Ryzen 3 2200G

If you are finally pulling the trigger on building your first PC, or you are tired of your frame-dropping 8-year-old laptop, this is undoubtedly the easiest decision.

Typically priced at a very modest $100, the Ryzen is affordable for everyone to give their PC gaming experience a significant upgrade with its quad-core processor that packs a surprising amount of power for its price point.

Notable specs and details:

  • Obviously, it’s super affordable
  • You don’t have to get a new motherboard if you already have an AM4
  • 720p experience is solid with little to no frame drops
  • It is incompatible with early drivers
  • Performs optimally with pricey memory

At what PC building stage are you?

If you already have a build and are happy with it, let us know what CPU you have in the comments below. Not only are we curious what direction you took with your PC building purchases, but some other community members would greatly benefit from your contribution.

Speaking of building your own PC, you are probably building a PC because you want to play video games on it. Because you will most likely play one or two of the popular multiplayer games, you should visit Eldorado.gg.

Eldorado.gg services multiplayer games in different ways. One of the more popular services offered on that site is in-game currency trading. There aren’t many ways to earn money back from the OSRS gold orPoE orbsyou collect from your favorite games.

Good thing Eldorado.gg picked up on that need. There, it has made trading in-game currency for your favorite games super easy. If you’ve never done it before, now is a great time because all of the most popular games are on the site.
