Hi. I am upgrading my old pc, and ryzen 5 2600/ryzen 7 1700x are both exactly same prize atm. I would mostly do gaming(sometimes perhaps some easy photo/video editing) and maybe use this pc for my studies in next year(lol). People say that 2600 is better for gaming but when i google it i see that they perform pretty much the same. Will the 2 xtra cores be needed or just the newer 2600 model, and which one is more "future proof"? Atm im going with Asus tuf b450 plus gaming mobo and having hard time deciding with with those 2 cpu. Every opinion is appreciated.
