-Asrock FM2a68m-hd+
-Asrock RX 570 8gb
-EVGA 600w Bronze

Just gaming? Or planning on streaming? Or other tasks?

I'd probably go with a ryzen 5 for gaming, if looking for bang for your buck. Or an Intel I5 9600k for best performance, again gaming only. If planning on streaming and other multithreaded tasks, I'd definitely go ryzen 7.

Thank you all guys! sorry, but i didnt post my budget because i live in Argentina and here the prices are very changing, i would say that here prices are maybe 25% to 30% more than USA, so i want to spend no more than $500 here, that would be $350 to $400 for you...

Hmm. You'd have better luck searching there, I looked at army tech and a few others and your local pricing is considerably different. A Ryzen 5 2600 at one pc store was US$258 my price. You will have better luck probably looking in classified adds etc maybe getting a slightly used Ryzen 5 1600 or 2600 on sale. I'm at a disadvantage not being able to read Portuguese.

Ill reccomend 2600 cuz there is no big price difference between 1600 and 2600

If you wait about 1 month, the prices will be going down in your country, I am sure. AMD has just slashed their prices in America and the ripple effect will reach you.

I'm running:
CPU: i5 6402p
MBO: msi h110m
RAM: 8gb ddr4 kingston (single channel)
GPU: gtx 1060 (3gb)

Been wanting to upgrade on something like ryzen 2600x or 1700.
Will use it for streaming and gaming. I saw ppl advising 1700 for more cores if you need it for streaming. Anyone around here stream and play with one of these ryzens? Is there any effect on gaming (fps drop, stuttering, awkwardness..)

I'm using Nvenc to stream atm.. (gpu encoding) and it's cool, but I know cpu encoding would be better graphic wise. Just wondering how much impact it would have on actual gaming while streaming. Cause when using gpu as encoder, impact is minimum..

Thx.
