Hello, I want to buy new CPU for gaming.
My system is :
  • Ryzen 3 1200
  • RX 580
  • Gigabye A320M-DS2
  • Crucial Ballistix 8 GB DDR4 2666 MHz RAM ( I will update 16 GB )
Should I buy Ryzen 5 2600 or Ryzen 7 1700?
Ryzen 7 1700 RAM speed is 2666 MHz
Ryzen 5 2600 RAM speed is 2933 MHz

I will not change my RAM. Just buy a new CPU. I know Ryzen 5 2600 better for gaming. But 2666 MHz is a problem?
Usually I am playing CS:GO. But I also playing other new games.
Sorry for my bad English.

Man, I just try 1.35V and 3000MHz and it's worked. Thank u so much. Should I do test or something?
Now, should I buy Ryzen 5 2600?

I'd snag the 1700, once overclocked the difference is pretty minimal however with the 1700 you'll get the extra 2 cores & 4 threads. I'm happy with my 2600 but I should of grabbed the 1700 as it was actually cheaper when I built my system but I suppose that doesn't matter as I'm looking at the 3rd Gen Ryzen 9 CPU's... :vendredi:

I would go with the Ryzen 5 2600. You get a newer generation processor which is bound to get better with updates, and it performs fantastic in Gaming. Atleast for me.
