Need help with a config decision

Hey lovely people of the forum!

 

I'm looking to get myself a pc and I've ended up with two possible configs after lots of consideration.

R5 3600 + RTX 3070 at approx 1700 USD

and

R5 5600x + RTX 3060 at approx 1600 USD

 

I mainly want to do lots of creative work in Adobe apps and also want to game on ultra at 1080p. Which config should I get? Should I stretch my budget to get the 1700 USD config or just get the 1600 USD one. Any help would be greatly appreciated :D

This one.

The lower the resolution (like 1080p), the more important is the CPU.
Your GPU will be able to calculate a huge number of FPS, because it's easier in low resolution and your CPU will need to be able to process them.

 

At higher resolutions (like 1440p, 4K) your GPU needs more time to calculate frames, so the GPU becomes more important.

Thank you for telling me this! Still, a few of the people from whom I've taken suggestions from recommend the 3600 and 3070 combo. Also, from my understanding, the 3600 is considered a better value. Quite conflicted here on what decision I should make.

This is just what I got to know by reading it somewhere.
It makes sence to me.

If people recommend something, always let them give you a reason for their recommendation.
Then you can decide if their recommendation makes sence for your use case.

There are a lot of benchmarks on the internet.

Just type in your GPU and look, how much FPS you get in a game, you like.

I found a benchmark website...

 

RTX 3070 benchmark with Ryzen 5 3600 1080p, 1440p, Ultrawide, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality - GPUCheck United States / USA

1080p: 170 FPS

 

RTX 3060 benchmark with Ryzen 5 5600X 1080p, 1440p, Ultrawide, 4K benchmarks at Ultra Quality - GPUCheck United States / USA
1080p: 125 FPS

 

So the RTX 3070 build is faster even for 1080p.

But if your monitor can't display more than 125 FPS, it makes no difference.
