Or better question, would the $80 Ryzen 1600 a better value at micro center...



It all depends..

I am building a starter computer for a middle school kid.. I am figuring the 1600 and a reasonable gpu would be a good place to start this year and let him add to the computer as much as a middle school kid would earn.. I do not want to have him get bored with it.. but I do want him to work for it or at least define a need for improvement.. If he needs a 3600, let him buy it earn, trade for it..


sorry to those with out a mc store.. my bad..

No, it's not worth it to upgrade from the 7600 unless you need more cores in which case the 2700x is a better option. Save your money and hold out for a 3700x or 9700k

Honestly, just do a google search. Intel proc goes from i3 as the budget option to i9 as the high end option, and first number in proc is the generation (i5-7250u is a seventh gen, i9-10532 is 10th gen).

is the 3600 worth the extra $70? No games, just Solidworks and surfing.

Money saved will go to a Quadro.

Looks like solid works will benefit from single core processing for the linear calculations. The 3600k is better or the intel i5/i7 is better yet for your case.

Our mc smells like hot dogs and bo... Sort of looks like Walmart also as everything is a mess in there.

For gaming there is almost no difference between the 7600K and the 2600X, look at this review from TechPowerup, At 1080p the 2600X is only 2.5% faster, and at 4k the 2600X is 1.5% faster. You would have to buy a new CPU and motherboard just to get a small increase of that size. Instead I would save the money for now and upgrade later when Ryzen 4000 comes out, or when Intel brings Ice Lake to the desktop space.
