1st INTEL: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/m6JCYr
2d AMD: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/wYgX8K (it has a better ram speed due to AMD benefit with it)
I'm not convinced with the AMD beacuse of the performance in games vs Intel. I want some opinions, and if you want to suggest some changes, please give some reasons for it. 8th gen is near, I know, but I'm not intereseted in having the last beacuse it is almost the same as 7th.
I know that I can have some rgb troubles with Tridentz RGB memory on MSI mobos (they were realased for ASUS mobos at first), in that case I will put: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ntYWGX/corsair-vengeance-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3000-memory-cmr16gx4m2c3000c15 (3200 in the case of AMD)
I don't worry about the extra usd between them, so only consider performance in games and how many years I can use this rig.
