Hi, is it worth upgrading from i5 4690k stock to ryzen 5 3600?

Now I have as a GPU, a GTX 1060 6GB

What's your monitor resolution/refresh rate and what do you need the PC for?

 

Your GPU is fine for 1080p gaming

I have an Asus MG248QE 144hz

I think that the CPU it's at the end of its powers because I have some freezes even on loading apps.

In the newer games, the drops are pretty visible, even in the menu.

Upgrade to the 3600X. It'll stomp the crap out of that 4690K.

Yes - The 3600x will take it's lunch, make it watch while it eats and then beat it with the empty lunch bag.

The 3600 itself would do the same with less wattage used, the x variant being a 95W chip, the non-x variant being a 65W chip.

Probably just need to reinstall windows or replace your hard drive/SSD, very hard to kill a CPU/RAM>Motherboard

 

but a 3600 is better for 144hz gaming

 

what's your budget/country?

I'm from Romania.

I can get a Ryzen 5 3600x + 16gb 3000mhz + a B450 motherboard.

If it's not much more expensive look for a 3200mhz CL16, or 3600mhz CL16 kit

 

and just make sure the board has the latest bios, or is an MSI MAX board, or some MSI B450 boards have USB bios flashing.

 

and also make sure it has a 4 phase VRM with a decent heatsink.

As a motherboard, I think i'll go with Gigabyte Aorus B450 Pro.

The difference it's atleast 20$ for 3200mhz.

Probably just keep the RAM then, you can always try overclocking it

 

that board is alright, but you might need a way to update the bios for Ryzen 3000, AMD has boot kits, or a local PC shop might have a spare CPU lying around

Here's how Ryzen 3000 scales with memory
