Best CPU
Admittedly, we take a bit of artistic licence when we say that a lot of these things we’re giving awards to this year are essential, but the CPU is literally one of the be all and end alls of any PC. Without one you’ve got yourself a very expensive metal box and with one you can have one of the best rigs going. Which is why we must group together and honour those CPUS that have blown us away this year. Whether through the sheer calculative power they hold, the mind-bogglingly innovative technology they’ve used or just a great price for what you get, these are our top picks for this year’s CPUs.
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
The CPU landscape heated up this year and from the thermal fires emerged the Ryzen 7 3700X. This is a very capable top end CPU with a performance to price point that is very hard to beat. This processor can play all 1000 of the most demanding PC games today. More than matching the recommended requirements of all games out today.
AMD Ryzen 5 2600
This Ryzen 5 processor enables modern gamers to meet and exceed nearly every recommended system requirement from the 1000 most demanding games available today. The reality is that this processor will mean you can play all games for years to come and the price you pay for this processing power is ridiculously low. This is the processor we currently have chosen for our own Game-Debate Best PC Build for $1200.

Intel Core i5-9600K
To balance out any modern system this i5 is very well priced regarding the level of performance it offers. It beats almost every recommended game system requirement of the 1000 most demanding games and we know it can run every game on the market without providing to be the sticking point in a system.
