So I currently have two PCs one for gaming thats currently r7 3800x and msi armor oc rx570 4g and one for recording streaming thats r5 3600 and evga 1650 ko 4g. And now I have a evga rtx xc gaming 3060 on its way. And im seeing people say don't get a 3800x for a 3060 and save the money and get a r5 3600. But I already have both cpus so should I just keep using the 3800x in my gaming system with the 3060 or swap cpus and go 3600 for gaming and 3800x for recording/streaming. Im replacing the 1650 ko so the rx570 is going into the streaming and recording system. Also I'll be gaming 1080p 144hz. So basically I'm asking since I have the cpus already should I combine 3800x w/ 3060 or 3600 w/ 3060 ALSO to mention I do photoshop and video editing on the gaming rig since that build was first and I got the 3800x for the core and threads to help productivity. But if I swap cpus I could just transfer programs and everything to recording/streaming pc

if you already have the 3800x dont buy a new cpu for no reason

3800x and 3060 will give better fps than 3600 and 3060

NOT A PROFESSIONAL, just a tech nerd. I am a human and can be incorrect. dont forget to quote me and put full specs in troubleshooting posts

of course, it makes no sense to downgrade to the 3600

That's what I figured but I just wanted to get other people's thoughts on it first because everywhere I looked they all said save the money and just get the 3600 but I already have both cpus so non of that applied to me
