So could I still get 1080p locked 60fps with the 5500 and save some cash or am I shooting myself in the foot in the present only to have an issue in the future?Depending on resolution, settings used, game etc you may see a performance difference between the two.
However I do not think the 5500 would significantly hold a 6600xt back in general.
Should still see good performance with both.
What are your thoughts on 1% lows would they be better on the 5600 or is that something that I don't need to worry about?reviews showed it well over 100 fps with a 3090. it'll stay over 60 fps with a 6600xt
it's all about price. if you can afford to wait and get a better cpu, then go for it. otherwise get what you can afford now and enjoy your system
Am I correct in saying there's around a 10 to 15% FPS increase with the 5600?I would choose the 5600. Don't just buy for today's GPU. Think ahead towards future GPU upgrades. Personally, I wouldn't recommend under a 5700x, unless budget is too constrained to make the jump. As games keep becoming more CPU demanding, you are going to want the extra cores.
I did the bios update before selling the cpu.Keep in mind also, if you were using a 1600AF originally, that you are likely using something like an a320, b350 or b450 board, which to my knowledge, all of which for the most part only support PCI e 3.0. So not having PCI e 4.0 support from the cpu may not be a huge issue. You may have a look at this link.

The other thing if you are on an older board, if you did not update the bios, in either case you will need a way to do that to support a Ryzen 5000 series cpu.
As far as I'm aware, all Ryzen CPUs are unlocked except for the APUs, so if the 5500 cannot deliver, just overclock it.Hi, there's quite a high price difference between the ryzen 5 5500 and 5600. I'm playing at 1080p and would like to know if the 5500 would be holding the gpu back in any way? I've sold my 1600AF and was thinking of upgrading.
