    Question on ram speed with this CPU AMD Ryzen 3 3200G 4-Core Unlocked Desktop Processor with Radeon Graphics. Yes I know its a 4 core , will this function well with 16gb 3200 ram and a RTX2060 or would a 5700 amd card be better , or is the 3200 a bad match for this CPU it will all be going in this mobo

    Gigabyte B450 AORUS PRO WIFI (AMD Ryzen AM4/M.2 Thermal Guard with Onboard WIFI/HDMI/DVI/USB 3.1 Gen 2/DDR4/ATX/Motherboard)

    My thoughts are that you should compare the games you want to play with the 2060 and 5700 and see which is better. I've heard the 5700 shits the bed in PUBG, for example.

    Your RAM is fine and won't be the bottleneck. You'll likely have to go into the BIOS and set the speed manually (I did recently on my new AMD build - first time with AMD for me).

    Also, if you haven't bought the CPU yet, you can get a lot more power for a relatively small additional investment. Particularly if you have a microcenter nearby. https://www.microcenter.com/product...m4-boxed-processor-with-wraith-stealth-cooler Just make sure you have a way to update the mobo's BIOS if needed to run the newer chip.

    Just make sure there’s room in your box for my nuts, cuz I’m gonna be slapping them on your chin if you start playing tf2 again.

    The Ryzen 5 3600 is a better option than the 2600X. The 2600X is essentially an overclocked 2600. The 2600X will run hotter and slower than the 3600.

    The RTX2060 is probably how I would go. A bit cheaper and comparable performance. If you can find side by side benchmarks for the games you are playing, that could make a difference. That isn't always easy to find.

    ^All this.

    The ones that start with a 3 are newer, and faster. Plus you can ebay it in the fall when the next ones come out and just pop it in. Upgraded the wife from a 2600 to a 3600 in January, and it was a noticeable difference. Like 20%. Also equipped her with a RTX 2060 and a Acer 144hz monitor. AAA games fly on there - highly recommended! But you could still shave some money off with like a 5600 XT or something. I bought a 5600 XT for myself and older games like TF2 just run at max... seems OK for Pubg even at 3440x1440. Not winning any awards but it works better than the old 290X.

    Maybe a 1670 SUPER would be cheaper and still better than the 5600 XT? I see em around $278 on Amazon.
    Comparison of a 5600XT against the 2060 and other lower end cards on the link.

    Hard to beat a Ryzen 5 3600 at like $175. The 3600X is on sale on Amazon for $199, too. 16GB RAM will be plenty, too. Make sure you get a nice M2 slot SSD, honestly that'll be the next biggest thing you can do. As long as it says NVMe and M.2, 1 TB ought to be between $125 and $145. Screamers.
