Hi there!
I am looking for a CPU with a budget for 600 to 700 dollars
My specifications are going to be
16 GB ram DDR4 3000MHz
Gtx 1070 Ti
A 2tb hard disk

As you can see i'll be spending a lot of money buying these and i only would have 600 to 700 dollars left
What would be your best CPU recommendations for these specifications?

I'll be doing a lot of hardcore gaming (by a lot i mean a lot)


Thanks!

Looking at your use case and parts you mentioned, the Ryzen 5 3600 should be more than sufficient. Heck, if you're not going to do much multi-threading, even a Ryzen 5 3500 is plenty good enough (essentially a 3600 without multi-threading, and significantly cheaper).
I'd say use some of the leftover cash on upgrading that 1070 Ti to a 2060 Super (about $40 more), and get yourself a good motherboard. You can also upgrade to 3200 Mhz RAM, since Ryzen APUs benefit from that.

I'm a bit of a noob at this, so feel free to correct me if I'm wrong :)

3600 Mhz C16 can be had for $80, which is also a good idea. And I do agree that if you don't already have the 1070 Ti, you should get a better card, like the 2060 Super.
