either way, your build will run those games. You should get more than just 256gb of storage though
R5 3600 + 1660
I reckon you can get the R3 3300x + 1660s for better value and performance
get 3600, gtx 1660 and some good ram like ballistix 3200@cl16 and you are good
and msi b450m pro vdh max instead of steel legend cause its overpriced shit with fancy lights
3600, it is vastly superior to a 2600
same thing for the graphics card, also nvidia has less headaches with drivers
Pretty similiar to mine
1 tb nvme
It can run any game without any problem at all so your PC should be 100% fine no worries
I got 2 almost same PC:
R5 3600 + B450 steel legend (ASRock) + GTX1650 + 3600 8*2 GB G-skill mem and R5 3600 + B450-PRO TUF GAMING (ASUS) + RX570 + 3600 8*2 GB G-skill mem
And I found that ASRock one can't run mem at 3600 (3533 max) but ASUS one can. I dunno about 3200 but I prefer ASUS MOBO (it's slightly cheaper and definitely better, more stable). IMHO steel legend is overrated and overpriced af.
r3 3300x + 1660s like others suggested for better value-performance
3600 and 1660. I hate AMD drivers so much, they are terrible. That's coming from an AMD user on both the cpu and gpu end xd. Ryzen 7 1700 works fine for me but will prob upgrade to whatever i7 comes out on the new architecture next year
I think you should wait for the next Zen 3 core release or 4000 series later this year, it should have an 15% IPC increase and maybe higher frequencies aswell...Also next gen gpu will get released this year and i would recommend waiting for Nvidia since they will have great gpu's perhaps a bit pricey..
1660 > RX580 but if u are on a budget, then rx580 can be a good option
and go for 480gb SSD
The 3600 is substantially better but i dont think you should build a pc right now, AMD and Nvidia are about to launch insane hardware in just the next 90 days.
In 100 days Ryzen 4000 will be out, RX6000 will be out and RTX 3000 will be out, RX6000 and RTX 3000 will have hardware Ray Tracing that will be much better than what currently goes on in Turing (RTX 2000) so if you hold your budget, you will be able to get a PC that outperforms the PS5 for around 850-900$.
the gap between 2600 and 3600 is huge, so go for 3600.
For the gpu, pick the one with better heat value
Other than money, depends on games and refresh rate you're going to play at.
For 60hz/non first person shooter gaming 2600 well suffices, otherwise 3600 is worth a grab.
As for gpu, I suggest planning for upgrade few months later, when the next gen gpus will start rolling out. So pick gpu with better resell value. Gtx 1660 I imagine would sell better. And for that upgrade to work, I suggest getting a good power supply in advance (good brand, 550w min)
Keep in mind that the ryzen chips have no integrated graphics, so you'll have keep the gpu until upgrade arrives.
2600x (of course oc)+ gtx 1660 SUPER = 1337 fps ezz
if you buy new CPU - ALWAYS - go for current gen, which is the 3600. enjoy
1660 > 580 but AMD card is cheaper and still good. your budget decides.
3600 is surely better for "games like pubg, csgo or gta v".
if you have the money obv go for the 3600
And the 1660 is more powerful than the rx580 so go for the 1660 if you have the money,.
i got the r5 3600, i got some temperature issues with it so if you buy it make sure you have good air flow in your case and maybe even get a better cooler for the CPU because the stock one is shit
The 3600 is MUCH better than the 2600, but if you're on a budget you might wanna save money for a better GPU or a larger SSD and go with the 2600 or even the 1600AF (it' a little bit cheaper and has the same performance) because it's enough to handle most current games.
Go with GTX 1660. AMD is not worth the hassle in terms of drivers at the moment. Get yourself some 3600 mhz memory for a few euros more. Ryzen processors like this extra clock speed.
r5 3600 is much better
also i would buy a 2nd hand rx580 from ali express (they are very cheap there about 120$) just make sure it wasnt used for bitcoin mining
i would also just get a b550 instead of a b450, the b550 chipset is a lot more advanced.
3600 and gtx 1660, i own a rx 590 and definitely do not recommend it, nvidia gpus all the way
i have r5 3600
and gtx 950
16 gb ram
and i have max csgo fps
and warzone can 50-60fps
soo.. u have really good pc
price diff 2600 and 3600 is like 20$ here
but the performance diff is insane between these two, get 3600 obv
Dont buy the standard gtx 1660, buy the super version. Standard 1660 is bottlenecked by its slow memory, super version fixes that and is only slightly more expensive. Also r5 3600 is a great CPU I have it myself, can recommend.
RX 580 more future proof
3600 is 40% better than 2600. no brainer lmao
