Hello good people.
I'm planning to build a new PC since I'll give my current to my younger brother on Christmas. I was thinking to get the Ryzen 5 3600. Now I see the Ryzen 5 3600XT is just 15€ expensiver (185€ vs 200€). I would like to ask if the small performance bump of the XT is worth 15€ or not. (And no, I can't afford the 5600X nor wait for 5600)
Thank you in advance

For me, 15 bucks is worth it. I wish we had the same pricing here in the UK!? Here it is a $50 price difference.
Well, it depends how much it costs. The 3600 costs approx. £165 and the 3600XT £180. Maybe the 3600 is too expensive here, or the XT too cheap, I'm not sure. but I think it's both

Maybe this will help:
If you don't plan on replacing the stock cooler, the X and XT models are more likely worth it.
If you do plan on replacing the stock cooler, they are likely not; that difference can go towards a better aftermarket cooler.
The X and XT models use the slightly stronger Wraith Spire cooler.

I won't use the stock cooler. I already have a Wraith Prism which I'll move from my current build, so I'll just save the money.
