Hi!

At the moment i have an i3 6100 , GTX 1050 2GB, and 8 GB RAM.

I want to buy an budget PC , that could run P3D in 30+ FPS. I was planning to get an GTX 1060 3GB, 8 GB of RAM, and i still don't know what CPU should i get. I have only 2 options: Ryzen 5 1600 or the Intel I5 8500 . Which one should o pick?

 

Thanks!

I think the best option is buying the ryzen because it’s overclockable and amd gurantees the compatibolity of new ryzen with old motherboards. So, if I’m the future you want to upgrade it, i think the best option is getting the ryzen

I would stay with the Intel.  It's faster and FSX/P3D were developed using Intel as AMD refused to play Microsoft's Windows upgrade game and leave Windows XP after FSX was developed.  They thought Windows XP was the ultimate for Windows Operating Systems (they did write a blog stating this).  I do know AMD refused to update their video card drivers for Windows Vista in protest giving Nvidia a huge lead in the video card market.  It is why the majority of flight simmers are using Nvidia cards.  Here are some sample performance scores - https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-8500-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-1600/m447884vs3919.

Since this is now the 21st Century and AMD has matured somewhat, I think either systems would work okay with P3D but there is a significant lack of benchmarks comparing the CPU's for P3D.

As long as the case and PSU could take it, if your budget is restricted, I'd get a 2nd hand 7700k or 7600k and a 6gb version of the 1060.  I think you'd be pretty underwhelmed whichever of the new options you choose.  I would think you would be able to get about 40% of the cost back selling the 6100 and 1050
