ryzen 5 3600 is 244 dollars and ryzen 7 2700 is 217 dollars
At those prices go for the 2700, you're not going to notice any difference if you're not using a top tier gpu and a 144htz screen!

The 2700 is still a rock solid cpu performance wise and $217 is a crazy price.

Between the gaming plus, tomahawk max and Pro take the cheapest one, they're all solid boards - I own the Pro 4 myself.

Dude if you have 2700 for 217 then 2700x should also be at a good price as i said keep it in consideration, not changing my words in my opinion as i said few performance loss won't matter and 8 core would be used in future games. Only time i think you should get a system with 3600 is it its a pre built and cost less

Why not a GTX 1660ti/super?
And psu is good although it's only 80+ standard why not a cx450/cx550 from corsair?? Or gigabyte P450B/P550B
