Hello, as the title suggests, im looking to see which of the cpus would be better

The i5 is listed at 250 dollars
the Ryzen 3600 is listed at 300 dollars

both have similar specs

I do both a lot of gaming and a lot of productivity.

I also need to buy a whole system around what ever chip i get. (MOBO, NVME SSD, RAM,)
I am reusing my GPU and hard drives from my current build

Also planning to buy a water cooler for the chip, doesnt matter which i get.

cheers

For gaming only it would be i5, but if you do actual work on your pc  go for 3600. What kind of productivity are we talking? Video editing?

Video editing, gam dev, modding, all sorts.

Is it worth the extra 50 dollars?

100% yes for that kind of stuff, it is worth the extra to get the R5 3600

imho it is, but it's a tricky situation, 50 bucks can get you a much better ssd or a psu... Still, for video editing 5 3600 is much better.

Can i ask how much of a difference it will make?

from what ive seen both game performance and compute performance are equal (with a slight advantage to the i5 in gaming) but with the i5 being cheaper

Also, im currently running a i7 3770

is it worth all these costs to upgrade to either of these chips?

The R5 3600 can be anywhere from 5-20% faster in multi-core and single-core workloads, and anywhere from 40-60% faster than the i7 3770

3600 is better but like 15%

imo 10400f is ok

From what ive seen, i would only be seeing a ~20% improvment, im guessing im wrong?

yes it is

its a 15% advantage (best case) for a 24% price increase?
doesnt seem worth it as its going to perhaps be miles ahead of what i have right now

Dont forget you can overclock the 3600 as well, even on the stock cooler

I'm not looking to overclock, as with either of the chips, it will get bottlenecked by my GTX 1070Ti which im not looking to upgrade anytime soon.

(i play at 1440p, 144hz so its a GPU bottleneck no matter what lol)

Stop using this. It's not accurate.

Hm? how so.

I've heard User benchmark is a pretty good tool to use (more so with GPUs tho)

Just search the forum for info related to ub, plenty of threads about that. Just don't use ub, not accurate and biased towards making intel look better.

Best website to directly compare cpus / gpus like userbenchmark?

Do the research yourself, much more accurate even if it takes more work. Passmark works too, for cpu's at least.

in my opinion if you dont overclock 10400/10400f is better

performance diffrance is not much
