Question above.

Im building a pc for a friend. So do I need to bring my R7 2700 to him only to update the BIOS?


Really appreciate your help ;)

Wow I forgot to mention that the first option was the R5 3600 (so r5 3600 vs r7 2700x. Both are 199.- in switzerland)

Sorrrry for that!
r5 3600 is about 10% faster than r7 2700x. That is for gaming. If your friend is doing any work that benefits from high core count than r7 is a better option. So go for r5 if he is into gaming. It generally achieves better performance.
