PC is going to be primarily used for FPS Gaming. My current console favorites are Overwatch, Destiny 2.

I'm primarily looking for 60+fps gaming (for the first time, coming from console). I've a 75Hz monitor already and going to use that. So 1080p and 75fps are my max settings.

I've two builds here: Intel build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/xC7f4q

AMD build: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/nVjf4q

Please help in picking which is better. I've no preferences between amd/intel.

Do you think RX 570 is sufficient for 75fps 1080p? The cost drop is a very positive one for me. That's the question which I'm not able to get reply for.. Since I'm restricting myself to 1080p and a 75fps, can I overclock the RX 570 and get that performance? Also planning to use a wider FOV than the default on the games, will that have an impact on FPS?

Looking at benchmarks, the RX 570 paired with the R5 2600 at 1920x1080 resolution and high settings averages 110 FPS in both Destiny 2 and Overwatch. You mentioned that you like FPS games, which will usually run easily with high frame rates. If you were to buy a GTX 1070 Ti, you'd be getting around 170 FPS in those two games, which is conplete overkill as you only have a 75Hz monitor. Seeing as the RX 570 does give you a very high frame rate, one might think it better to get an even cheaper card, but I'd highly recommend th is one for you as its great value/performance and you are also future proofing. If you're planning on getting a 144Hz monitor in the future I would recommend the RX 580 or even AMD's RX 3070 which is rumoured to be released in the third quarter of 2019.

Increasing your FOV will reduce FPS because your screen needs to render more graphics.

Intel sucks. Definitely choose AMD for your CPU.

May you elaborate on your opinion on why intel sucks?

I guess i'm gonna go with AMD just for the price drop and spending better $ on motherboard for OC.

OCing your CPU will give you a 1-5% performance increase in games

Just price is the one which is holding me.
