If you are on a budget, go for the 10400F at MC for $130. It will qualify you for $20 discount for mobo as well. Assuming you will be using a GPU along with your CPU.

nvm - you can OC 10th gen memory with B560m board.

But then again, if you have waited this far, I would say wait for 11400F so that you can combine it with a B460m motherboard or H series so that you can overclock your memory past the 2666 restriction placed on 10th gen Intel for i5 series. 11th gen has no such limitation with a B or H series motherboard.
That's exactly the combo I just got spent under $300 and it blows away my old set up.... plan on using it for a couple years I absolutely love it playing every game it's just chilling around 30% usage. It's a monster for the price!

Worth going from a 10th gen i3 to the 5? Underpowered 200w system with a gtx1030. Works ok for the kiddo; im guessing no.

Edited volts to watts. Electricity is hard.

thumbed up for helpful comment but also understand that it's a discounted prior gen vs mrsp new gen. if you know for sure that you'll gain perceivable performance boost from 11400f (including unrestricted ram clock speed), then it might be worth it, but the value proposition may not be the same.

i'm guessing you meant 200w Smilie but yeah it's not really worth it, especially paired with a 1030. any gaming is bottlenecked by the gpu, and for a kid, i'm assuming they're not doing any heavy cpu based workloads.

Great info always annoyed the H outta me that the lesser chipsets were so limited on ram speed.

The new B560M motherboards allow RAM overclocking with 10th gen i3 and i5 CPUs. I'm running an i3 10100 with a ASRock B560M-HDV MB that is $75 from Newegg. RAM is OC'd from 2666 to 3200. Great cheap combo. I paid a total of $153 for the the CPU and MB after Microcenter screwed up and gave me a 10100 instead of a 10100F during that $69 deal.

11th gen is not worth the price for the gaming performance improvement over the 10th gen. Although there is a IPC increase, core-to-core latency is better with the 10th gen.

"core-to-core latency (regardless of microcode) still show 28-30 nanosecond latencies on most cores, rather than 18-24 as observed on Comet Lake"

Quoted from https://www.anandtech.com/show/16...et-lake/19

For now 10th gen is worth buying and hopefully 12th gen will arrive in the second half of 2021 and offer decent gaming performance improvements.

I'm running a 10400 with a Radeon 5700 and it's fantastic for 1080p gaming. I upgraded from an i5 7400 and this chip is a monster value for performance/$
