Choice is down to these two. 1600 = 6 cores at 3.2/3.6 and 1500x = 4 cores at 3.5/3.7. Price difference between the two isn't huge but I'm on a budget and it is a factor (1500x about $30 less).

At this time probably not going to overclock. Usage would be dual monitor gaming with benchmarks and/or streaming video on the second monitor. GPU is RX 580.

I'm coming from an FX-6300 so I imagine either of these CPUs will be an upgrade.
