Old comment I know, but currently Intel is actually cheaper and readily available unlike new AMD gen... You can get i7 10700K here for 339 euros while 5800X is 469 euros... And 5900X and 5600X are constantly out of stock. i9 10850K (10 core) is 439 euros as well... So, Intel CPU's are actually cheaper, on stock and more affordable currently. When I got 10900K back in fall for 499€ I knew AMD stuff was coming and was going to be impressive. However, I also predicted they would be constantly out of stock for months on end and I did not want to wait that long, so I just went Intel. And honestly, don't regret it. Its not like these Intel CPU's are slow even if AMD is faster.Depends on what he will do with his PC. If the PC is for gaming I actually think the Ryzen 5 generation is the better and more affordable choice.
