hello, i'm looking forward to buy a new cpu , mobo and ram
for now i m thinking about r5 3600x and a x570 mobo (i think it's a bit overkill) and i don't have an idea on the ram yet.
any ideas?

if you have any plans of upgrading the CPU later the x570 is a good choice.

You can save a lot of money by going with 1st/2nd Gen Ryzen and sticking to an older motherboard. Not sure about prices in your country but in the US you'd save 50% by doing this.

If your monitor is 60 Hz you most likely won't notice any difference in gaming.

Not sure what the price difference is between the 3600 and 3600X in your currency seems about $10 usd. These are the 3 options I would be looking at.

3700x = $330 x570 = $150 Total = 480
2700 = $150 B450 = $80 Total = 230

3600 = $190 x570 = $150 Total = 340
1600AF = $85 B450 = $80 Total = 165

Including RAM it's not quite half off, but the difference in price in 3rd Gen CPU and X570 is substantial compared to previous Gen CPUs and motherboards.

This would be a good alternative

The 1600 AF is only available in the United states as far as I know otherwise I wouldn't touch ryzen first gen.

The ryzen 2700 seems to be overpriced in your country and without overclocking it, it's not worth it being so close in price to the Ryzen 3600

An $80 motherboard will be garbage.

the $150 range x570 motherboards are not much better than the x470 versions, the better motherboards range $200+

the price for the ram is too much, more expensive than the mobo and cpu, that doesn't seem right

I think i will go with this : https://www.forit.ro/wishlist/20871/
