Ryzen 7 2700x or Ryzen 5 3600

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Planning to build a rig next year and not quite sure on which CPU to go with. 

 

The two choices are Ryzen 7 2700x or Ryzen 5 3600.

 

I will be mainly gaming, but I will also be doing a lot of video editing in adobe premiere.

 

Not sure which CPU to go with.

 

If it helps, I will be using an RTX 2070 super.

 

What do you think?

Go for the 3600. But when building next year the 3600 will have a successor. Go for this one then.

I'm planning to go second hand for the CPU so if the successor fit's into my £140 budget, then I will go with that. I doubt it will though.

depending on how much you're willing to wait, you might be able to snatch a second hand 3700x for £200 once the new generation launches and is in stock.

the 3600 is better than the 2700x in most cases unless it's purely multi threaded. In this case, the 3600 is better.

I'd recommend this option as well. Second-hand Ryzen 3000 series will flood the used market once the 4000 series are announced.

It honestly depends on how much budget I have by next year march. If I can afford a R7 3700x, that's what I will get. If not a 3600 or 3600x or even a 3600xt
