Question Are Ryzen 5 3600 and RTX 2060 SUPER OC a good combo for streaming?

I'm looking to get a build for 1000$, so in my country i basically got two options:

Ryzen 5 3600 with RTX 2060 SUPER OC
or
Ryzen 5 3600x with RTX 2060 OC

the processors are 50$ in between, is the 'x' worth it for 50$?

there is really small difference between 3600 and 3600x in performance.,if not any at all.
I would go for more GPU power so go with RYZEN 5 3600 + RTX 2060 SUPER OC

Yes, for that model 3600 or 3600x is no biggie. However say a last gen 2700 and 2700x it is worth the slight extra you pay. Also I don't know what resolution you want to play at but try to stream it at a lower res then the game so your frame rate doesn't drop as much. The 2060 is a great 1080p card locked at 60fps. Good luck with the system you will be pleased for the performance you get for the price. I know video cards are expensive compared to CPU's but that is just how it is as a video card has a PCB and chips and what not.

do you think streaming cs:go at low settings with resolution: 1024x768 will be fine and would i get like 250fps with that processor and GPU?

For streaming you should use the integrated nvec enconder of the RTX 2060 (https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/guides/broadcasting-guide/). While using this encoder you should have no impact in your gaming performance at all.

As for how many FPS you will get it all depend on the settings and how you build the computer.

Theres no doubt the GPU and CPU are the most important parts of the FPS equation, but RAM is also a key aspect of the final number.
For Ryzen you will want to get atleast 2x8GB DDR4 3200MHz CL16 or 2x8GB DDR4 3600MHz CL16 (just so you know, as long as the memory kit you choose have really decent timmings the diference will be small between DDR4 3200MHz and 3600MHz, but the 3600MHz kit may give you a tiny FPS advantage).

I don't play a lot of CS:GO, I haven't used the game since I updated it my rig last year, but from what I know you should get AVG FPS really close to 250, who knows?, maybe depending on the graphic settings you can go way higher than that.

Also keep in mind you can play the game at for example 1080p, and stream at 720p. The RTX 2060 Super should eat CS:GO like a sweet pancake.

Cheers

I totally agree CS go you shouldn't have an impact on your FPS or a noticeable impact so you're good to go just stream it at 720p as said above.
