Is Intel Still a Good Processor For PC Building?

Episode 1788 (2:04:11)

Steven from Bloomington, CA
 Intel 11700K

Steven wants to build a new computer.  He wants to get an Intel 11700K, but he's a bit nervous because reviews are disappointing. Leo says it largely depends on what he's using it for. AMD may be a better option. The Ryzen 7 5800X is great if you can find it. The bigger challenge is going to be video cards. What Leo recommends is doing a virtual build through Dell. That way he'll have support in case something goes wrong.
