Please help me what processor/CPU cooler/case fans to get. I dont really mind if its not RGB i just want the best performing one.

Cant decide if 2700x or no x, I dont want to overclock and I will be using it for streaming. Price difference is almost 26$ from where Iam.
Heres the build list:

  • Processor : Ryzen 7 2700x or non x
  • Motherboard : MSI B450i Gaming Plus
  • Memory : Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16GB 3200mhz
  • Power Supply : Seasonic 520w M12II Evo
  • Graphics Card : Gtx 1060 3gb <- From my old build buying a 2060 in 2 months
  • SSD : Samsung 250GB EVO
  • HDD : 1 TB Toshiba

If one is not overclocking, then the 2700x would give you some more performance, since it will boost itself higher than the 2700. Could the a decent performance advantage, but can you afford the premium?

Yes I can. I think ill get it anyway. And sell the cooler for like 20 or so dollars.

The B450i is more than capable of handling even an overclocked 2700X so, provided you;'re comfortable with the premium, the 2700X would be the way to go.
In a day-to-day use-case, at stock, the gap isn't going to be particularly significant.

For gaming + streaming though, I'd suggest considering a Ryzen5 2600/2600X. In the US at least, a 2600 runs about 1/2 the price of a 2700X ($160 vs ~$300). That $100+ price difference would likely be better spent moving from a 2060 to a 2070....

Ultimately, 6c/12t of a Ryzen5 should still be plenty capable for gaming + streaming.
