Hello PC Gods,

Should i get a Ryzen 2600 or Ryzen 5 1600x?

I'm buying an RX 580 with 16GB 3200mhz RAM in a B450 TUF.

Ryzen 5 2600 is 140$ while the 1600x is 90$.

Please help me, this will be my second build.

Thank you :D

The Ryzen 5 1600 AF is a good deal as it is practically on par with the 2600. What do you aim to play on the RX580 however? You will likely get 144fps on low-level titles set to low and around 60-90fps in AAA titles.

Hello sir, i plan on playing CSGO, Valorant, League of Legends, COD Warzone, and shooting games. I dont really play high end games because they are expensive. :D

Sometimes the 1600AF is not displayed, however I would recommend just going for the 2600 as it is a great processor, I use it with the 2060 and it has not let me down. So go for the 2600 and overclock it when you can. As for games, you would have to bump them all down to the lowest, as games like COD Warzone only get 90fps on low, however you should be fine. Hope I helped
