What is best for gaming with a budget for a cpu of $700?

PLEASE NOTE ( THIS IS FOR THE CPU ONLY, I HAVE MONEY SAVED FOR OTHER PARTS, LIKE GPU, RAM, SSD, ETC.)

I have SAVED $700 to spend on a cpu, should I go Intel or AMD? I have saved-up money for the other parts. I just want to game smoothly in mind.

    AMD Ryzen the 8 core cpu and you dont need $700.  save the money for a better Video card GPU such as Nvidia.....  

    I have used intel 8 core which costs me around $400 and it doesnt do anything better than the 4 core intel procie..... seriously......

    most games work best with Intel, but some exceptions exist for games that are more open-world (think GTA).

    just get something 10th gen or newer,as expensive as you can afford (remember tax).

    the Core i9-10900X is quite nice.

    AMD without a doubt, they are inarguably better overall and better value than intel.

    You can get a Ryzen 3950X for about $700; it's a superb CPU!

    See that in the top CPU charts here:
