what is better to pick 3600 with 1x8gb 2666mhz cl16 or 1600 af with 2x8gb 3200mhz cl16?
And just if you need my system specs
CPU: AMD athlon x4 860k
MBO: ASUS a58m-k
RAM: 1x8 gb 1600 mhz kingston
GPU: XFX RX 570 8GB (1 year old)
HDD: toshiba dt01aca100 1tb
PSU: LC Power 6550 550W (1 year old)
CHASSIS: Cooler Master K280
I know that the cpu would be overkill for gpu but hey if it is that worthed im getting it.

i would go for r5 3600 with 2666mhz ram and possibly overclock it to atleast 3000mhz.
Going for the weaker cpu is going to affect gaming performance more than weaker ram.
If you dont want to overclock you can upgrade to faster ram down the line.

i was thinking the same but i just wanted to make sure. I will probably just add another ram stick later.
