Best amd cpu to pair with 1660 ti

 Share

I am trying to make a budget build with the amd platform and I am wondering what is the best price to performance cpu to pait with a 1660 ti. This system is going to be used for gaming, video editing and streaming. I was thinking of getting a Ryzen 5 5500 but I was wondering if there were better alternatives.

The 5500 is a pretty decent CPU; it should pair well with the 1660 Ti.

From my experience, it's usually around 150€, while the 12400F is around 200-250€. For the 150€ price point, the 5500 does seem to be the best CPU to my knowledge.

Ryzen 7 3700X / 16GB RAM / Optane SSD / GTX 1650 / Solus Linux

Ok thats simple a 5500 + decent b550 board (so you can upgrade later to more cores if needed) and you are set

How much is the older Ryzen 5 3600?

It trades blows with the 5500, in some games its a tiny bit faster in others a tiny bit slower but overall, they are almost the same in performance.

 

EDIT:

 

just to clarify, I mean R5 3600 vs R5 5500 are basicaly the same but 3600 should be even cheaper... especialy 2nd hand

 

EDIT2:

 

If Intel is an option then i3 12100f would be the best CPU for the price as its even faster than both R5 3600 and R5 5500 while usually cheaper. (faster in games, slower in productivity)

Prob is there nearly no 3600 available new, you can get one used for around $100 but it's not much better than a 5500

To OP the best current budget AMD CPU is the 5600, a tad pricier but will last longer...
