I was originally going to go with the 3600, but it was either out of stock everywhere, or even more expensive than the X variant. So I just went with the 3600x.
Edit: Looks like the 3600 is $170 on Amazon at the moment which is a pretty good deal.

Wow. Amazon doesn't even have the 3600 on stock for a good month. And it's $200. You were right. https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B07STGGQ18/ref=dp_olp_ALL_mbc?ie=UTF8&condition=ALL

New Ryzen 3600 on amazon for $172.34 with free shipping

Any particular reason you went with an i5 instead of a Ryzen 5? For instance: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07STGGQ18/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_lX3aFb86N4KJ7

Is it worth it to spring for the ryzen 5 3600? Only $10 extra on Amazon right now from the 1600 but I'm not sure if it's better for gaming

$105 3600 from the same seller, few other cheap Ryzens Edit: Not implying this gives me anymore confidence

Go with a Ryzen build for much less. The 3600 itself is less than half the cost of that Intel CPU.

3$ more on amazon if you’re more comfortable with them. I just got mine last week.

PcPartPicker should have their own entries, a good budget Ryzen 3rd gen is the 3200G which I’ve heard good stuff about. I run a 3600 in my VR rig and it’s more than capable for heavy physics calculations which are becoming more mainstream in VR. Here’s an Amazon link nonetheless: https://www.amazon.com/AMD-Ryzen-3600-12-Thread-Processor/dp/B07STGGQ18/
I couldn’t recommend any single B550 as I’ve never owned a mobo with that chipset myself. I do have a friend who just got one and he loves it, although it’s a rather high end one, so more on the pricey side. Honestly anything MSI or Gigabyte. Asus I hear good things about too but I’ve had a bad experience with their mobos in the past so I’ve steered clear of them.

Heads up, this is price matched on Amazon if you don't care about potentially waiting. Same for 3600x

If you want some more bang for your buck check out the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 save $40 and get a lot more performance for your money.

will the 3600 for $167 be better than the 3300x for VR/gaming
3 points • comeinmybasement
I would get a ryzen 5 3600 for the cpu and an ASrock b450m pro4 for the motherboard, should cost $250.
The 3600 is the best price performance cpu rn and the pro4 is a good budget motherboard to pair with it if you don't plan on doing big overclocks.

I dont know what you paid for the 2600, on newegg its $195,..
The 3600 is only $200 at amazon..
1 points • Cramallowances
Also just as i'm looking at it... if you're paying nearly $200 for the Ryzen 3 3300X get a Ryzen 5 3600 instead! it's a 6-core 12-thread processor and is much more capable than the 3300X while being cheaper than that price you'd be paying at PCByte.

Oh dang really? It says 3rd gen on the box though, does that refer to something different? (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07STGGQ18/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
Honestly upgrades aren't on my horizon so it wouldn't be my biggest priority as long as it would work.

3600 are on sale right now at Amazon. It can be delivered next day if you have prime!
If you insist on an almost-new, good luck!
