Hi, I was wondering If anyone can help me figure which CPU i should buy next as i currently have a Ryzen 3 3200g My budget would be max around 200 or less, My GPU is a rx 570 gb and my motherboard is an Asrock b450 pro4 w 16gb of ddr4 3000mhz ram. I was planning on buying a ryzen 5 1600 af but wanted to know if there were any other alternatives that wouldn't cause too much bottleneck, Im buying a new CPU in hopes of it being able to play games and record them at 1080p 60fps and do some light editing. Any replies would help, Thank you!!

You can get a ryzen 5 3600 for 175 dollars on newegg which would get the job done. I do not think you will need anything more powerful because at that point the gpu will be restraining you. For streaming it is perfect, same with editting. Or you can buy a 3600x for 220 dollars but I think it is unnecessary. Around the price range, these are you best options.

Seems like a 1660 Super would accomplish what you want better than a more powerful CPU with a 570.
Except a 4c/4t cpu runs out of steam, in modern titles, these days. 4c/4t gaming is essentially dead. If they had a 3400g, I would definitely agree. Since they are wanting to do recording, and editing, a 6c/12t cpu would be the superior option here. I agree with the earlier recommendation of an R5 3600. Great cpu, that can make use of a GPU upgrade, later on.

Fair enough
