Hey guys, just as title says. If so, I want to know how much of a difference it will make going from Ryzen 5 5600X to Ryzen 7 5800X.

Thanks!

Every system on the planet has a "bottleneck" somewhere.
Every single one.

The Ry 7 5800X is more powerful than the 5600X.
"How much of a difference" is unknowable. It varies between games and applications.

What parts do you currently have?

5600x is pretty much top marks for gaming only in terms of price to performance. i5-12600K is a comparable match.

If you absolutely wanted to squeeze the most out the AM4 platform, grab an R7-5800X3D.

More cores only helps in certain game titles that can use all the CPU resources you can provide. Recent Battlefield titles are the standouts.

I have:
Ryzen 5 5600X
3060 ti 8GB
32gb 3600mhz ram
850W Gold+ PSU
1TB SSD, 2TB HDD

Not sure if MOBO matters but I have MSI 550-A PRO

As for peripherals I have a 165hz 2560X1440p IPS panel.

Thanks for quick reply!

Edit: Did you want to know my specific parts like manufacturer/etc?
