Hey guys. Right now I'm running the current specs

CPU: 2600x
GPU:5700 XT
RAM: 16GB 3200MHZ
MOBO: ASROCK B350M

I'm planning to purchase a Valve Index when they restock to be able to play Boneworks, Half Life; Alyx, and other demanding vr games. I was wondering how significant the upgrade to a 3600 would be for the physics calculations. I would love to be able to play the games with the best visual quality my PC can muster. Any ideas? I'm open to other suggestions as well. Also I play at 1080p @144hz[/USER]. I was also wondering how much closer I would get to 144 on other titles, because I'm afraid the 2600x is bottlenecking my 5700XT

I went from a 1700x to a normal 3600 and it was a nice upgrade for gaming. However, I think Ryzen 4000 series comes out maybe later this year. So it might be a good idea to hold off and look at the new CPUs when they arrive. Your board may allow a bios update and the CPU to drop in.

I'm running the 3600 on an ASRock B350 pro 4, and it works fine as long as you do the needed bios updates prior to install.
