I've been told by some that the 6c-12t in the Ryzen 5 3600 isn't enough to handle gaming, discord, and a tab or two in chrome at the same time for the next 3 or so years. Is this true?

The 3600 is an amazing cpu. For the next 3 years, I doubt it will make a difference towards your cpu. Chrome and Discord will not be affected. Only depends on your RAM and GPU which can change everything.
