this is my first build its more on the budget side I’m stuck between the ryzen 3600 and the Ryzen 1600af I can get the 3600 for 172$us or I can get the 1600af for 110$us
Can’t decide
For gaming I mainly play
Rocket league Fortnite Apex legends Call of duty warzone all on 1080p low settings
I like high FPS don’t care for graphics

Here’s my specs
Motherboard ASRock b450m pro4
Ram 2x8 3200mhz Ripjaws v
Gpu Rx580 4gb
Ssd 500gb 850 evo
Case Coolermaster MB311L

Just make sure the motherboard's bios is updated to be compatible before installing the 3600.

Asrock usually has a sticker on the bios chip saying what version it is. Or on the box.
