I want to change my A6 9500 processor because it has low performance. My current specs are
CPU : AMD A6 9500
Motherboard : AS320 hdv
Graphic card : GTX 1050
RAM : 8gb 2400 MHZ
Is Ryzen 5 2600 good choice for my new CPU?
 
The 2600 is a good CPU, but from a cost perspective it isn't the best choice. With the most current BIOS you can get the 1600AF which is just a lower clocked 2600 and costs less.

Or spending a bit more than the 2600 you can get the 3600. The 3600 will be ~15% faster clock for clock against the 1600AF or 2600.
