I’m trying to decide between the 2600 or 8400. Both a great cpus and I’m pairing with a 2060. I did notice there seems to be a slight bottleneck with the 8400 in videos but I’m not sure. Which should I get? Mobo would either be z370 a pro or b350 plus. Thanks for the advice!!

I’m in the US. I’m trying to keep it around $800. Build so far (outside of the parts I was talking abt) is focus g case, rtx 2060, evga g3 650w. I haven’t decided on ram yet as the i8 would probably only need 8 vs 16 with the ryzen
 
Impossible to land a 2060 in the budget as it costs 350 already. My take:
