big benefit of 5600 over 5500 is PCIe 4.0.
now this is truly the perfect time to upgrade if you are using RYZEN 1 OR 2K . Yes you could get ryzen 7k series, but for how long the mbo/ram you got back in 2016-18, to still be using it now for the next 4 years as the 5k series are damm good cpus - man ryzen really did us gamers/enthusiast a solid i swear.

If one has a very nice x470 tachi mobo, and B-die that can handle 3600 easily...

What upgrade would you recommend, for someone who has a ryzen 5-3600, just for gaming(aka good single core marks) and stability (its a fight to get the b-die to even run at 3200 some days). I was thinking the 5700 or 5800 if there was a good sale. But for $120, the 5500 looks nice too if it OC's well and the game doesnt care about more than 4-6 cores.

Else its new plateform time, and i really dont want to switch to win11 to get the 12th gen intels.

And yes i have a microcenter 15min from work Smilie

Also don't buy the 5600 now for $150 when Newegg already had it for $100. Prices will fall because of the new cpu's coming out.
I haven't seen it cheaper than $140. Was that a price error?

I would pass at $150 knowing these were on $99 newegg flash sale multiple times.

Built an office PC with a 5600, cheap A520M board, 32GB DDR4-3200, thermalright air cooler. Very solid setup for the money.

I easily saw a 20% improvement in overall gaming going from a 3600X to a 5600X on a B450 motherboard. I'd imagine the 3600 to the 5600 would be similar.

The whole system cost should be used for perf per dollar.

$149 is the current price at Micro Center, if you have one nearby. If I can get one for $99, I might finally upgrade my Ryzen 7 1700, especially if I don't have to touch the MB and memory.

I have a 3600 as well, IMO, set the memory 1:1 to your memory speed in bios DOCP settings. Don't use ryzen master. Leave it default. You will get better performance that way.

As far as upgrade goes. It doesn't make sense to upgrade unless your getting minimum 5700x. 5600 doesn't make much sense. And it also depends on your GPU.

If you GPU is anything up to an rtx 3060, then a cpu upgrade isn't gonna make much of a difference.

When I say it doesn't matter too much. If your gaming and your goal is more frames per second. And your already getting 100fps average in various latest title games, a cpu upgrade only to gain 5-10fps doesn't make any sense. So you need to make sure if you do an upgrade it's a very big sizable upgrade. Like minimum 50% improvement in performance.
