Got mine from microcenter for 129 before black Friday. It was the best price of the holiday season. Don't believe the hype this cpu is beast. I run it with a gtx1080 144 hz on 1080p in most games. I get 90 fps in 2k on modern warfare.

Price at microcenter just hit $149.99 today, and you can take $20 off if you bundle with mobo as well.

This is not really a "great" deal for a 2700x, especially if the gaming stuff has no value to you... but it's kind of a "normal" deal.
For your application, the extra cores of the 2700x will be more useful.
So I would say 2700x better than 3600 for you.

For a gamer, the 3600 would be better... at least in current games.
Future games will be coded to actually use 8 cores, as the next gen consoles will have 8 core cpus.

That and as much RAM as you can get. 32GB is pretty cheap at around $110-120. And a good-sized SSD for loading samples and such.

Read the bundle carefully. The 2700x is choice of 1 game. If you buy from Amazon they won't give you the codes and give all kinds of lame excuses and blame AMD.

3600 is worth the $15 extra, easy. I wouldn't say this is a good deal.. This was $136 (after Prime card promo) for a while last month.

This is a hard one.

2700x vs 3600... They are ROUGHLY 10% difference in price atm AND 10% difference in performance.. (3600 being better and more expensive right now)

So it's a question of cores. If you need the 8/16 then I'd get the 2700x. If you just play games or casual stuff, get the 3600.

I'd personally go with the 3600 ONLY because it's newer..

Now... The games being 'coded' for 8 cores.. that's a little ignorant.

Console games are optimized for their hardware(i.e. 1 single spec list.) PC games are.. "optimized" for a HUGE range of hardware.

We won't see 'this game supports 8 cores cuz ps5 and Xbox(whatever the name is) have 8 cores'

I'm not saying new games WON'T take advantage of 8 cores. But it's not exact causation from consoles...

This will be $99 by June and some of you who bought will be kicking yourself.. AMD plans to release desktop and laptop chips all year long. Expect price cuts on the 2xxx and 3xxx series shortly after..

They both can achieve 60fps easily. So unless you're a hardcore high fps junkie with 1080ti or 2080
They're all equal in games
