  1. i5-6600 > Ryzen 5 3600 - A Worthy Upgrade?


    Hi guys. Since I'm facing a clean install of my system I'm thinking there's no time like the present to upgrade my CPU & motherboard. My question is, is the Ryzen 3600 a worthy upgrade on the i5-6600 and is the Gigabyte GA-A320M-S2H a decent low-end motherboard? I do game on my PC and currently have a Palit Gaming Pro RTX 2060 in there.

    I can get both CPU & motherboard for 223.99 which includes a BIOS upgrade before shipping.

    Thanks.

    :)
