AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
Got on launch day.
Amazingly I got this 12min after official Launch. Was suppose to be Delivered on 11/12, I got it 11/10. :0 :) Did not think I could beat the bots but I did. Performance is beyond my Expectation over my Ryzen 5 3600. Updated my B550 bios and plug and play. No issues with my Crucial 3600mzh ram. First...

AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT
Decent performance at 1440p on Linux
Don't let the 1080p marketing deter you as this is a very capable 1440p card. The very latest games may require some graphics tinkering to maintain that solid 60fps or greater. As an example older titles like Shadow of the tomb raider and Death Stranding are in the 80fps range while something newer ...

AMD Ryzen 5 5600 vs. i5-12400 & 5600X CPU Review & Benchmarks
So that's how we would look at this if you're on pretty old amd ryzen, the 5600 may be a worthwhile consideration for you as an in-socket, upgrade save a whole bunch of money on everything else. If you think the extra let's say 20 versus a 3600 in some of these games, it goes up obviously depending on the game. If you think that's worth it, then that's where it makes sense

I compared it to the RTX 3060 and I like the RX 6600 XT a lot more. Not talking about the price, that one you have to find one that's good.

AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT
I’m in the process of building my first gaming PC. So far i’ve bought an Ryzen 5 5600x CPU, Radeon RX 6600 xt GPU and other components but I need a MOBO. I’ve ordered an ASUS ROG Strix B450 F Gaming II board but the microcenter employee said that AMD didn’t intend on my cpu to run on this motherboard and that it would cause some bottleneck problems.
