Hello. I have Rog X570 E-Gaming and Ryzen 2600 (Bought this mobo because was planning to get 5800X or higher btw). I can sell my CPU and add like 300-310$ to get 5600X. On the other hand, I can sell my CPU + Mobo with adding 130$, I can get 10600K and Asrock Extreme4 Z490.

So which one is more logical? Also I have 3060Ti, EVGA 750 G3 and 3000Mhz 2x8GB Ram (3466Mhz OC'd).

Note: Prices are local converted to USD.

Note 2: System is using for gaming (not comp. AAA games and Simulation).

Get the 5600X.
Much easier since you already have a motherboard.
First you have to sell your 2600+X570 which will take a lot of time unless you are selling it to a friend.
Dont forget the BIOS update!
Thanks for the info. Both way I have to sell either CPU or both. There is almost 200$ difference between them, is it really worth?

Sorry i just saw what you meant in the first post....
Im still behind what i said about 5600X, since you will have a easier upgrade path, and not to mention overclocking potential, what cooler do you have?
If I just want to buy 5600X with selling my 2600 I have to add like 310$.

If I get 10600K + Z490 Mobo (Aorus elite ac or asrock extreme4) with selling my CPU and mobo I have to add like 130$.

I have Cooler Master 212 Spectrum RGB. Don't know if it is selling worldwide since I can't find it in the global page of CM's.

Isn't 5xxx series is the last supported CPU on AM4 platform? So I can not upgrade it in future. Same as (excluding 11th gen) with Intel.
