Ryzen 5 3600 paired with a nvidia gtx 1660?

Recommended Posts

Everything will bottleneck, but a 1660 and 3600 will be fine together.

Always depends on what resolution you want to play. At 720p most likely, at 4K the Gpu most likely bottlenecks the cpu.

I am not sure whether a gtx 1660 would bottleneck with a ryzen 5 3600. Can anyone help?

That's a good combination. Do check though if a GTX 1660 Super is not much more expensive.

I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

Yeah a 1660 super could be had for not that much more (depends on your location). The Ryzen 3000 series is pretty good for games anyways at least when compared to previous gen chips. You could even pair a 2060 if you can with that chip but a 1660 won't be bad too since practically all configs have at least some bottlenecking. The only question is how significant it is.
