Budget CPU for Vega 56

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I managed to get a second hand Vega 56 at 348 USD, but I'm trying to stay under a budget. What's the cheapest CPU I can pair with this with minimal bottlenecking? Its fine if it's just a small bottleneck

Try using the PSU Tier List!

I think 600 USD? Our currency's  worth changes by the hour. No joke

Yeah ryzen 5 2600 is fine.  Pair it with a good b450 motherboard, maybe 16gb of ram depending on your country's ram situation and there will be no bottleneck at 1080p/1440p
