— Astonishing performance for the 80$ you spend on this little chip right here. It can beat the Core i7 7700 in almost all tasks. It is the only chip from Intel that I might be able to recommend.

Core i7-6700 - Excellent 1 month ago.
Processors

— This is a 6th Gen Core i7 CPU with 4 cores and 8 threads. It is a little old but if you can find it under the price of something like a ryzen 3 3100 in the used market I would recommend getting it, especially since you can BCLK overclock it with a Z170 or Z270 motherboard and get a lot more performance out of it. If you don't BCLK OC it you can use the iGPU too for some light GPU workload, so that you won't load your eGPU too much..

Ryzen 5 2600X - Excellent 1 month ago.

— For 125$ this CPU is one of the best VFM chips at this price point. It is a 6core-12threaded CPU with good OC and excellent performance.

AMD
Ryzen 5 3600 - Excellent 1 month ago.
Processors

— A 6core-12threaded processor with better performance in almost all workloads than the 8core-16threaded Ryzen 7 2700X except for some video editing and rendering tasks for around the same money

Pentium Gold G6400 - Good 1 month ago.

— A very vfm processor. My recommendation would be to go with the 80$ Core i3 10100F which is a 4core-4threaded CPU and delivers better overall performance for the money.

Ryzen 7 2700X - Excellent 2 months ago.
Processors

— It is priced similarly to a Ryzen 5 3600, a 6 core 12 threaded processor based on the Zen 2 architecture. The Ryzen 7 2700X is an 8 core 16 threaded processor based on the older Zen+ architecture. This chip is better in most multi-core tasks due to the higher core and thread count, but worse in single core demanding tasks. It is one of the best value-for-money chips for rendering, video editing and generally most multi-core tasks. The stock Wraith Prism Cooler is one of the best stock coolers and keeps the temperatures under control. Recommended for mainly workstation use.

Core i3-7130U - Good 2 months ago.
Processors

— Offers a little better performance than the Core i3 7100U. It is good for the basic things, like web browsing, and very light gaming with its iGPU.

Intel
Core i5-2500 - Good 2 months ago.
Processors

— Holds up surprisingly well, even by today's standards. It is very fast for a CPU from 2012 and adding a GPU it can make a decent combo for a cheap and somewhat fast computer.

Intel
Core i3-7100U - Good 2 months ago.
Processors

— It's an Intel 7th Generation mobile ship with low TDP and acceptable performance.

The Best.
