All that being said, you aren't going to see a major difference between a similarly priced Ryzen CPU and Intel CPU in games if you have a nice GPU setup, but if your setup isn't that strong and the CPU's IPC and frequency comes into play, the difference might be more pronounced.

Performance89%Quality90%Features94%Value95% Overall TweakTown Rating92% The Bottom Line: AMD's Ryzen 5 1500X's extreme affordability makes it an excellent choice for a mainstream rig requiring more cores.
Since some of the more important IO is in the CPU, such as the M.2 slot's PCI-E lanes and four USB 3.0 ports, you don't lose too much by buying a B350 chipset motherboard over a more expensive X370 motherboard.
