What cpu for my RTX 2060?

Hello!

I'm looking to upgrade my cpu, mobo and ram. I'm paring it with a rtx 2060. Obviously I wanne spend as little money as possible (without getting a bottleneck ofc), but I'm willling to spend a little extra to get the perfect match for my rtx 2060. I'm looking to play modern games in 1440p. I only play games, don't stream or do video. So I've been looking at many different options:

 

430$ - i5-8400, 16gb of 3200mhz ram, asus rog strix B360 F-gaming

485$ - Ryzen 5 2600, 16gb of 3200mhz ram, asus rog strix B450 E-gaming

525$ - Ryzen 5 2600x, 16gb of 3200mhz ram, asus rog strix B450 E-gaming

585$ - i7-8700, 16gb of 3200mhz ram, asus rog strix B360 F-gaming

600$ - Ryzen 7 2700, 16gb of 3200mhz ram, asus rog strix B450 E-gaming

665$ - Ryzen 7 2700x, 16gb of 3200mhz ram, asus rog strix B450 E-gaming

720$ - i5-8600k, 16gb of 3200mhz ram, asus rog strix Z370 F-gaming + Corsair H100i cpu-cooler

 

The reason for the Asus mobo's is because it's demo (around 35$cheaper) + 15% off.

 

So what do you guys think would be a good match? I've been thinking about the i7-8700, because I've heard that Intel is better for gaming. But also one off the amd cpu's because of future upgrades with the 3rd gen series. Also the amd's would come with a better mobo. Or is the only difference between the F-gaming and E-gaming wireless wifi?

 

Thanks for all opinions and suggestions!

But i would wait a bit before buying as Zen2 is right around the corner

I'd pick up an r5 2600 and then get a new Zen 2 CPU if you want better performance in the future.

The 2600.

However if you want an enthusiast platform, get a i7-7800X.

Ryzen 7 3700X / 16GB RAM / Optane SSD / GTX 1650 / Solus Linux
