Render tests Games tests Conclusion The i5 10400F managed to beat a $200 processor, being a $155 one. The benchmark tests presented show that if you want a dedicated gaming processor and have to choose between the i5 10400F and the Ryzen 5 3600, the i5 10400F should certainly be chosen.

Core i5 10400F + Radeon RX 6800, Intel better value than AMD? [1080p, 1440p, 4K]
and if available or pricing of the Zen 2 processors is even worse in your region, then I wouldn't hesitate to snap up the core I5 as you've just seen, it's certainly a very capable processor. Sadly though, while you can easily snap up a part like the 10400f, getting your hands on an Rx 6800 series graphics card is near enough to impossible, and getting one at a reasonable price does appear to be impossible. so that really does suck

THE BEST 10th GEN CPU? - Intel i5 10400F Review - TechteamGB
But I know a lot of people who are in this price point would probably rather spend the money on a higher tier graphics card or maybe just fly It can't afford it, so that might not be an option for everyone. Of course, you can also go with Team Red here. The Thirty-six Hundred and Thirty Six Hundred X offers fantastic both productivity and gaming performance, and if your work-life balance swings a little bit more on the work side of things, then those might be a better option

I've built a SFF because the exta space of a Mini Tower was simply unnecessary for a Core I5 10400F + GTX 1650. The "ITX tax" was around 15% of the price, with great thermals and can be placed on top of my desk. Aside space, I just prefer the more understated looks of SFF cases, not a fan of the gamer aesthetics...specially in budget cases.
