If he had the money to spend I would get the 10600K for the ability to overclock it can add a couple years to the time before you need to upgrade again. If on budget then the 3600 would be a better buy it might allow to get a bit better video card. The Intel is just going to be about 30 bucks more than the 3600X so in my opinion a better buy for the long term.
Decent motherboards seem to be more expensive as well and then you have to add the cost of a cpu cooler on top of that, so it's just not only about a price difference between cpu's.

That is true just depends on the budget. Buying the Z490 Extreme 4 and 10600K Tuesday to hand down my 4790K to my son that I still have no reason to replace other than to retire his 2500K. Reusing PSU's is the worst part but I have faith in both.

😂😂 Sorry for that guys, it was just a Social experiment on how People will react, im new here so I was just intrigued.
Its just interesting to see what type of people you get on what forums. I dont personally mind about down votes, as i said I'm new here.

And I didnt reply because I came physically on just now.
Anyways I upvoted everything back.
Please be understanding. (I study psychology and sociology at uni)

(Why I took the i9 into account? Dont know. Maybe my mind was just wondering off I guess.)
