Best thing about Intel CPUs is you dont need a dGPU to make them work nor only limit your selection to APUs from AMD.
If youre building a computer right now and you dont already have a GPU then there is zero value in any AMD CPU currently.
This is actually crucial. Unless something changes (and reportedly it won't this year) then to differentiate the 5600X and 11600K or for that matter vs a 10700K in gaming you'd need to buy a $1500ish GPU making a complete system north of $2000.
11600K is going to have a big advantage on most desktops, at least until GPU prices come down.
