First pc build 3600 on a budget?

Budget (including currency): started $500 then $750

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: games racing web browsing

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): have a case already. would like to game at 1080p 60fps. wanted 1600af now looking at 3300x but not sure about waiting for them to become available. was wondering if 3600 might be a good option fo a build now. want to get it built asap

Okay, I am a little confused by your post.

 

1.  What parts do you already have

2.  Are you no longer wanting a 1600AF due to cost?  

3.  The 3600 is stronger than the 3300x or 1600AF but of  course it costs more.  So do you want that included in your 750 dollar budget?

 

If you want it built now, then 3600 is the best option.  However the 3300X will be out soon and based on your budget a great option.

How concerned are you with forward compatibility with 4000 series Ryzen CPUs?   Right now the best board for your build is a B450 due to cost, but those boards are not going to support the Ryzen 4000 CPUs.  However the B550 boards will and the more expensive X570 boards (which are available).  

 

In short at your budget point this is not the best time to build a computer....

If you want to get a 3600 , downgrade the GPU to 1660 super . But the Best thing is to wait for the next gen amd CPU.
