Ryzen 1600x or 2600x

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I am planning on building a gaming pc sometime soon. I am planning on going with ryzen jest because you can’t beat the price. So right now amazon has the best deals on these chips. I want to do either a 1600x or a 2600x because they have the highest core clocks out of the ryzen lineups. So right now a 1600x is $150 with a 4.0 ghz boost clock, and and the 2600x is $180 with a 4.2 ghz boost clock. I am planning to overclock whichever card I get and I will be water cooling it. Which card would you recommend?

 I believe you mean CPU, not card, as these aren't graphics cards, unless you're asking for graphics card recommendations to go with the 2600x or 1600x.

 

Otherwise 2600x is superior to the 1600x.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

You don't need to buy an AiO for a Ryzen 5, shift the money you'd spend on cooler to the 2600X and give it's stock cooler a go.
