4K is the gold standard for PC gamers across the world. However, running modern games on a pixel-rich 4K screen can be a right headache, especially at ultra and sometimes not even possible with even the fastest hardware. In this post, we’ll show you how to build a gaming build ideal for 1440p gaming as well as 4K in most titles. Keep in mind that you’ll be able to get well over 60 FPS at 1440p in the latest games with 40-50 FPS at 4K.
Best Gaming CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X

However, you should be able to push 150 FPS in every game with the Ryzen 5 3600X and get much better performance in other multi-threaded workloads such as content creation, encoding, and video editing. You can go with the Ryzen 7 too but when it comes to gaming, the 3600X is every bit as capable.
