I have been using core i5 7600k clocked to 4.6Ghz for 3 years. But seeing that 4 cores are not always enough to deliver good frames, I have decided to upgrade my CPU. I was initially going to get R5 3500XT (USD152). But then I saw some posts mentioning that 3500X performs almost same as an R5 2600 (140$). And I plan to overclock any processor I get, so the little gap between them for 10$ shouldn't be a problem. I should also include that R5 3600 cost about 192$. But I don't really want to spend too much money on the CPU right now. Would I get a noticeable upgrade in games by getting a 2600? (I use my PC mostly for gaming only). Or should I wait longer, save more money and wait for Ryzen 4000? I need overclocking abilities, so I can't go for intel as an i5 10600k costs way more than Ryzens here in my country (314$). 

My other specs: 

MSI GTX 1660 Ventus OC

12GB DDR4 RAM (8+4)GB

if you can wait, then wait for zen 3. every ryzen chip is unlock albeit they dont have much overclocking headroom, just enable PBO and you should be set.

 

if you are on a budget and need something now, try finding a 3300x if they are in stock.

why? ryzen does not have a big headroom for that anyways.

get a 3300x which should be cheaper, and actually better in some cases. or wait for zen 3 (i would do that if i were you.).

You really think I would get better performance from 3300x than 7600k? Would it be better than 2600? How much improvement can I expect? The thing is, when a new CPU launches, they usually cost higher here in my country. So I'm not entirely sure about Ryzen 4000. But hopefully, price of the older CPUs may come down. I'm not sure which way to go.

Yes.

In almost any case. Unless that workload was purely multi threaded.

Depends. But the 3300x is practically a 7700k.

Wait. Save up more, and if it was out of your budget, get zen 2 for cheaper.
