bottleneck with rtx 3070 with ryzen 5 3500x??

im looking to buy the rtx 3070 but due to its £499 price tag most of my budget will be blown so im wondering whether if i use a cheaper cpu like a ryzen 5 3500x or even a ryzen 5 3600. also it would be really nice if you guys could tell me how much bottleneck i would be getting if any. Thanks in advance!

I'd really try to get the 3600 instead of the 3500, for SMT.


To answer your question though, it should work fine, especially at 1440p+.

Here's GN's review of the 3600 - the gaming tests are run with a 2080Ti, which should be around the same as with a 3070, if we're to go by Nvidia's numbers (though you'll obviously want to wait for actual reviews first):
