I have a i5-5600 and a gtx 1050, i want to upgrade to a rx 5600 xt and after i have that i am going to buy my brothers i7-3700k, motherbord and 16 gb ddr4. What happens if i put the rx 5600 xt with the i5 - 6400. Will it burn or do i just get less fps?

The CPU will probably be at 100% usage when gaming and you will get less FPS,

The question is if the CPU cooler is ready for it.

What cooler do you have?

okay so a few things:

the i5-5600 doesn't exist

the i7-3300 doesn't exist, and even if it did as a 3rd gen you would not be able to use DDR4 with it, only DDR3

 

the i5-6400 is capable of keeping up with a 5600xt. it will not "burn", whatever that means, and you won't get less FPS, you'll get more FPS from the 5600XT if anything.

what you may see happening is that the 5600XT can sometimes draw frames faster than the CPU can call for them, leading to a situation where the CPU usage is high and GPU usage is low, but i don't think it's likely you'll run into this since you're more than likely going to be playing at 60fps/60hz.

 

i would not say that "upgrading" to what i assume is an i7-3770k is worthwhile doing, as you're moving back to a significantly older platform with slower memory

get money, acquire catboys, fold proteins
