so I mainly play rainbow 6 armature pro attempting to get into the pro scene. as I said I have a Ryzen 3 2200g paired with an rx580 and 8gb of ram and I get about 45-70 frames I used to get 110 back when Vulkan first came out and I don't know if they did something to it but now I only get about 45-70 frames and it is sometimes unplayable. I've been told to upgrade my CPU because the Ryzen 3s aren't the best gaming CPUs and I would really really like to get something better what do yall suggest.

when I built this pc I had a very tight budget but now I'm in the 200 and below price range.

What motherboard do you have?
What country are you shopping in?
Is the 8GB RAM a single stick or a 2x4GB kit?
I have the X470 Master SLI/ac and it is by ACR rock
im in the U.S
and it is a single stick

Yeah, so we're looking at getting you to DDR4 (preferably DDR4-3200 or 3600) and a Ryzen 3600. I think to get both in your $200 budget, you'll need to reuse your existing 8GB stick of RAM.

What is the speed rating of the 8GB RAM stick you have? DDR4-????

ok, yea I don't know how to check my ram speed but I don't think it's very fast.

I talked to one of my good buddies and he also suggested getting another ram stick and he actually has the same one the other guy linked

Ok, so DDR4-2400 CAS 16 (16-16-16-39) 1.2V. That's what you'd want to match or beat. The mobo runs both sticks at the same speed, so if you buy a faster stick, its going to run the same speed as your current one.

That said, Ryzen CPUs do benefit a fair amount from faster RAM (DDR4-3200 CAS 16 is the sweet spot on $/performance these days), so if you got a new 2c8GB kit, that would be slightly better. But that means this current stick needs a new home.

Ok so that said what would you do if this was your computer I really want a new cpu I did a benchmark for rainbow six and my cpu workload was 100% with nothing open other than rainbow six Im really stuck between what I should get.

Your budget is your factor. Ideally, you're looking at a Ryzen 3600, which will cost you $175-$200 (depending on sales). 2x8GB DDR4-3200 costs....$55. 1x8GB costs $30.
to be honest, right now I think I'm going to just get the 2x8 GB of ram for right now because at the moment i can only afford one and the ram will hold me tilll i can get a new CPU. not to mention Christmas is coming up.
