2600x is a waste of money

R5 2600 is a good choice, however the r5 1600 is much cheaper as some places are trying to get rid of them. You might beable to score a good deal with a r5 1600, and a mobo. The performance is minimal at best, you can always OC the r5 1600.

I dont plan on overclocking, also i dont care about the price difference between the Ryzen 5s, prices are different where i live. I just asked which processor would work the best with the RX 590(preferably a ryzen 5 processor), not which is the most cost efficient.

I found a 2600 for 170€s, and a 2600x for 30€s. Its not that much
