  • Cheaper air cooler, which is very high quality and will keep your CPU very cool
  • Better Motherboard (Better audio quality)
  • 3600 RAM (Same Price)
  • Much better 5700XT

Absolutely. While 3600 is the 'sweet spot' for Zen 2, you'll be just fine running 3200. In fact, 3200 with 15/16 CAS latency will be just as good as 3600 with 18/19 CAS latency at the end of the day.
