I think the best cpu choice would an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 or an AMD Ryzen 3 3300x. if you live near a Micro Center you can find a motherboard, graphics card, and cpu for below msrp. I would suggest Micro center as the first place to look.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 vs. AMD Ryzen 5 3600X vs. AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT

Otherwise, the new 3600XT is nearly identical to the 3600X as both feature the same base clock speed, CPU cores, threads, cache, system memory and cooling solution.If you want the best third-generation Ryzen 5 CPU, then we recommend getting the 3600XT due to the aforementioned max overclocked speed.

​. I am not sure when this problem started to occur. A month and a half ago I did upgrade my PC, and I am uncertain if the problem was existing before that. I've upgraded to an AMD Ryzen 5 3600, MSI X570-A PRO ATX AM4 Motherboard, and Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x 8 GB DDR4-3600 CL 18 Ram.

Time Traveler report

It was the year 2025, I had amassed enough Ryzen 3000's to run the calculations required to build a time machine. I have traveled back to this exact point in time in order to coerce my past-self into buying this on the exact moment it releases. When I travel back into the future, I should be about 5...

Nice imporvement over first generation Ryzen

I had a Ryzen 7 1700 in a MSI b350 Tomahawk. I updated the bios and installed the 3600 with no issues. The improvements over the first generation are large enough that even with 2 less cores i'm not losing any multithreded performance and gaining in single and lightly threaded.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 in 2021 ? | best budget gaming cpu ?

Overall, i have one myself. I was never a fan of it first, but since it's you know like the fifth gen until the fifth gen uh ryzen cpus are so hard to get and there isn't any pc part you can get right now, like you, rarely could find a good pc part In stock like there is no gpus on amazon, nothing in general, so yeah, it makes it a good buy, and that's that if you like that video press the like button, if you got any questions uh, let me know down description. What do you think? Do you think the ryzen 5 3600 is a good buy like i, myself got an i3 uh 10 100 uh with hopes that the 11th gen until cpus would be something but uh

Beats the 8700k.

This processor is beastly. It genuinely is a revolutionary piece of engineering and is something you should have on your radar for a long time. It is now the best value chip on the market, coming close to even the colossal 9900k for $200. Buy it. Just do it. Your wallet will rejoice with the saved m...
