I would like to know which of the two is best for a workload which typically consists of about 10 pdf, 10 word and 10 excel files open while also running chrome with 20 tabs. Would i benefit more from R7 2700's 2 extra cores, or from R5 3600's higher IPC and clock rate? (Or is it a RAM issue entirely)
Thanks

I'd say 2700(x) on account of more cores which is better for massive multitasking.

And also yes is a RAM issue, How much RAM do you have ?

One thing is too keep multiple files of around 150K~400K open + 20 tabs, and another to keep files of many MBybtes + 20 tabs.
