[SOLVED] what is the best 2060

also is it a good idea to pair it with a ryzen 2600 and a b550 tomahawk
Do you mind going the intel route?
Since i see you are debating between 2600/3600 from that last thread.
you can get a 10400F for 170$ and a Z490 mobo which will support 11th gen Rocket Lake cpu's.
Also you can get some pretty cheap ram like since it doesnt matter for intel.
I had something like this in mind:

And this is the RYZEN route you have been debating about:

You save 60$ by going the INTEL route,and i can tell it is a lot for you.
For the 2060,probably this one.

@AlexTheFern i currently have this
It will perform similar to the i5 10400F i put in this thread,but has a pretty poor motherboard,but its very likely that H410 chipest will support 11th gen cpu's,since MSI said that their entry level H410 motheboards will get a bios update for 11th gen cpu's,and i think other companies like asus,asrock,gigabyte will follow.
 
im building my first pc so i dont have a gpu and ll prob be building it like 2 months from now so if its out of stock it m i g h t not make that big of an impact
Take your time,pick out the parts,dont rush anything.Take it easy.
It took me 5 months to get the confidence to swap out the cases,since i had a OEM mobo so its kidnda hard to find all the front panel connectors.But i took my time,went full send and it worked out perfectly.That was last year,damn time flies.
