What do you plan to do with this build?
You could buy a ryzen 7 2700 which is in the middle pricing between 2600x and 2700x. The 2700 has 8c/16t and a max turbo of 4.1ghz, just 200mhz below the 2700x.
bit of everything but mostly gaming read some bad things about the tomahawk and 2700x i already got the tomahawk so im not sure if i should just go for the 2600x and be safe
