3600 or 3700x

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So i’ve been planning on upgrading my pc for a while now. My current specs are 2400g, b450-f and 16gb 3200mhz ddr4 ram. I’ve been thinking about upgrading to an RTX 2070 super strix (due to it’s silent mode and looks) and an r5 3600. However, i’m someone who really likes comfort, meaning i do like to have a lot of chrome tabs open and preferably idle in another game while gaming. I’m wondering if it would do justice to upgrade instead to an r7 3700x due to it’s multithreading performace. Would appreciate your guys’ imput!

 

In Sweden where i live the 3600 and 3700x differe by roughly 180$.

I would stick with the 3600x you won’t run into issues and can get a decent overclock on them, it’s a very good buy imo

I have both those cpus, there is at most 5% difference in gaming. So if you buy the 3700x do it for the ability to do other things then game.


I would rather agree on what we share, than fight on what we don't. - Myself

Would it be noticable when having lots of programs open in the background while gaming?

No, ram would help with that though
