Will I have a bottleneck with a 3060 Ti and a Ryzen 5 3600X?

I've spent quite a few days now looking into different gpu's for my new PC that I'm building (my current is dog) and I think I've come to the conclusion that I want to get a 3060 Ti. Will this pair fine with a 3600X? I have all my parts here already (well, the motherboard is on it's way still), just waiting for a gpu. Also I know the recommended power supply for this card is 650W and unfortunately I got a 600W because I didn't think I'd be going for a more powerful card than the 5700 XT which I was originally going to get. PC Part Picker says my estimated watt usage is going to be 419W with it but I don't know how accurate that actually is. I'm probably just going to slap in my 1050 ti until I get a new card.


My build in case it helps any:

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 3.8 GHz 6-Core Processor 

3060 ti maybe lol

Not at all. The RTX 3060 ti is around performance of the RTX 2080 SUPER, so no, there will be very minimal/no bottleneck whatsoever.

The 3060ti offers slightly better performance when compared to a 2080 super, or a 1080ti, and this means that you are fine.


The 5600x is also similar to a 3700x. i9 9900k, or an i7 10700k.

So it would just like pairing a 1080ti or 2080 super with a 9900k.


That would be completely fine.
