  1. Don't bother OCing a Ryzen 3600 (or any Ryzen 2000/3000 for that matter). Not worth it.

  2. Don't pick a GPU "for" a CPU. Pick a GPU that is well suited to your visual quality goals at your performance goals. Period.

Ryzen 2000 is better for overclocking but amd even said there isn’t any performance left to overclock for Ryzen 3000.

1080p/165Hz monitor?

Check out the new Radeon VGA's, i.e. 5700XT. AMD just docked $50 off MSRP. You could also check out RTX 2070/2070 Super. While all these VGA's are considered over the top for 1080p, some modern titles are starting to run sluggishly at this resolution on cards like the 2060/1070/1070Ti. This aspect will get worse for PC gamers as developers start flexing their muscles with more powerful hardware.

GPU choice is about what visual quality you want, at what resolution and what FPS at those settings.

Oh, and the boost clock for a 3600 is 4.2, which means unless you overclock to 4.2 or above on all cores you will be losing some performance on lightly threaded tasks....such as gaming.

D8rbauer made a video showing that it doesn't boost that high

The numbers I've seen show little more 2-3% improvement on a 4.3GHz overclock (I suspect an aftermarket cooler). 5% on POVray (of course, you could get even more benefit [an additional 10%] from a 2700 on that application).

If it isn't boosting, it might not be in a position to actually benefit from the additional frequency. It seems to boost enough to match an less OCed Ryzen.

Im liking the look of 2060 S, will check on 1080p benches. I love that it has 8Gb instead of 6Gb

Dude, im on a 1070ti and @ 1440p/60 high ultra im nice, ( thats, gpu bound ) mostly, cause i only play single player AAA games, so @ 1080p on a 2060 S, yea you're good to go :D Also go blue for cpu, this is coming from a 2700x user in gaming and honestly Zen 2 (3000) is still imho eh in raw frames at best but whatever i guess, good luck!

FYI if you go with EVGA there is an associate code to save 5% off all GPUs on their website. Here’s mine just in case.
