Ryzen 5 3600's clock speeds are higher
Higher clock speeds are better for gaming than higher number of cores
You will get upto 12fps boost if you choose to get the ryzen 5 3600 over 2700

3700 would be the better thing
3600 for best prize performance ratio
2700 and 2600 would get you lower fps in games
due to price inceeased , 3600 is now costing here like 3700 so 3700 is way out of budget max i can buy is 3600 i want to know that 2700 has more cores will they help in streaming as just for gaming i am pretty sure that 3600 is good due to high clock speed

When using the GPU for streaming the CPU has zero effect on it,you can go as low as you want,all you have to care about is if the CPU will be able to fully use the 1660 super.

Also using the GPU for streaming might lower the FPS you get by a little bit depending on the settings you normally use,if the GPU gets used 100% by the game and you add streaming you will lose game performance,but in general it's a small amount.
