Then 2600X is fine, even 2600 if even cheaper. Country?
Greece.2600 costs 125 euros and 2600x 155 euros.Im thinking of bying a 2600 instead of 3600 just to avoid the bios/boot issues that b450 mobos have.Otherwise if i had the budget for a x570 i would go straight for a 3600.What do u suggest?:D

2600x is terrific value at the prices they've dropped to and they'll remain a great gaming CPU for a while yet. But if you can swing the 3600 it's just that much better, especially since it's 1% lows performance makes it smoother in CPU-bound gaming scenarios. But that kind of depends on whether you do the kind of 'twitch' gaming that matters for.

If it was my choice I would run what you have for a while longer and let whatever BIOS issue you're talking about work itself out.

The 3600 is hands down a better CPU than the 2600x...that's not to say there's anything wrong with the 2600x, it's a fine CPU, but the 3600 brings better memory support and simply performs at a higher level in every aspect.
