Hello everyone, I've been trying to figure out which CPU to buy, but I find myself a bit confused with the voltage and the performance, my plan is to use OBS (record,) Discord (talk,) Twitch (stream) and a game such as Warzone at the same time, I understood that more cores equals more productivity so I was inclined for the AMD R9 5900 but the price is around $800 then there is the R7 58000 at around $400 with 8 cores which is not bad but reviews say to go for the R5 5600 (6 cores) with a $100 or $80 less ($300) also I have a PSU of 650w so I was wondering which CPU would be the best fit, I would have enough money for the R9 but the $400 difference compared to the R7 would help a stray cat that I've been feeding and trying to see if I have enough for it to take it to a vet and help it, the confusion with other two options are; would the CPU require me to buy a new PSU? And would that CPU be enough to handle the programs mentioned before? My current built is; A 650w Gold PSU, a MSI MPG X570 Motherboard, Two 16g (each) Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro ( I think,) a Corsair case with RGB fans ( 3 fans 12v I think,) a Cooler Master ml240l v2 rgb ( 2 fans 12v I think) liquid cooler, an AMD R5700 XT GPU, an Acer Predator 240 fps monitor (not that it is useful info) and currently using a AMD R7 2700 CPU. I'll appreciate any answers, thank you

5800X is more than enough for your usage.
A perfect balance between gaming performance, core/thread count and price.
Your cpu cooler should be enough.
Make sure to update the BIOS to the latest version before swapping CPU's.
Hi thank you for your answer, what about the PSU is it enough?
