Should I go with a Ryzen 5 Config?


Or Ryzen 7?



Be aware as I can only stretch it to 335€ and I strictly plan only on gaming. My current rig is an FX 8350 along with 16GB of RAM and a GTX 1060 3GB. Keep in mind that I also plan on upgrading sometime in the future to probably like an RTX 2060, so I don't know how much the Ryzen 5 would be a bottleneck, on 1080p at least. I also don't plan on overclocking these chips as stock is pretty much all I need. The only reason why I even considered a Ryzen 7 is mainly due to Battlefield 1 and 5 and for future upcoming titles in the Battlefield series as they require beast CPUs to maintain stable framerates. Thanks in advance.

2600 build of course. Crap boards are terrible idea even if that means a worse CPU. Tho for gaming 8 core and 6 core practically do the same thing

I would go 2600 and a B450 Tomahawk if you're concerned with gaming - 2700 won't give you much more than what a 2700 will unless you're doing productivity workloads. Save the money and in the future you can either upgrade to a Ryzen 3000 (when prices drop over time) or a Ryzen 4000 if you want. I personally would not both buying an X370 board as you'll get much less bios support moving forward compared to B450/X470.


Also, a 6-core CPU, especially with SMT like the 2600 will run Battlefield 1/5/whatever-number-they-decide-next fine.
