I am more than happy playing in 1080p with about 50FPS as my computer gives me no issues playing current games like that (CW and BF5). I know most people here will have amazing £3000 computers so go easy.. (I will be looking to upgrade GPU at some point). CPU - AMD Ryzen 3 3100 4-core 3.6 GHz WITH 3.9 GHz TURBO 16mb L3 Cache.

Ryzen 3 3100 2021 Overview
You typically want to have six or more cores, and that kind of gets me into this. If you're spending 175 bucks on this and you have the budget room, buy a 3600 or 3600x because those are going right around 200 to 220-ish depending on where you buy from Whether it's Amazon Newegg, if you have a Microcenter nearby, you'll get those around that ballpark as well, and they actually tend to be more in stock for the 3600. Um, and the 3600x variant

AMD Ryzen 3 3100 CPU Review: Overclocking, Gaming, & Production Benchmarks (ft. 7700K)
it's not as exciting to us as the 16, but it's not bad and certainly not overall disappointing. It's just that AMD Kind of spoiled everyone with the 1600 AF and so now we're just recovering from that, so that's it for this one.

I have my settings maxed out and get about 45 FPS in the major cities but NZXT shows my CPU is sitting at about 50%, my GPU at about 70% and my Ram at 50%. Ideally i'd like to be getting 100+ FPS. I'm running an AMD Ryzen 3 3100, Radeon RX 570 series and have 16gig of ram.
It didn't help that there was a global shortage, so almost everything I wanted was out of stock. My first planned build was with an AMD Ryzen 3 3100. It was going to be a budget build and maybe not look as good as the other builds, or not be able to run Red Dead Redemption 2 at 60FPS, but it was going to be my build. But everywhere I looked, the CPU was out of stock.
I have it with Ryzen 3 3100 and 16GB RAM,and getting around 50FPS on high settings. Setting targeted frame rate to 60 makes it constant 60 without any noticable difference in visual quality.
I'm surprised that Steve didn't mention the RX 6500 XT as a reason for why the lack of PCIe 4.0 is a big issue for this CPU. The fact is that the RX 6500 XT will perform better with the i3-12100 and even with older AMD CPUs like the Ryzen 3 3100.
* CPU: Ryzen 3 3100 (OC’d to 4.1 Ghz w/ stock cooler). * RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x8GN 3200 Mhz CL16. * MOBO: B550I Aorus Pro AX. * PSU: Cooler Master V SFX Gold 750W.
I personally recommend you downgrade your monitor to something like the Sceptre E248W-19203R (get one with a 75hz refresh rate) and possibly try and get a graphics card. The Spectre monitor costs around $90, which gives you an extra $80 to spend on the PC itself. You could also try and get a slightly cheaper PSU around $60 too. After that, I'd get the similarly priced Ryzen 3 3100 for around $100 and spend the rest on something like a used RX 570.
