· the 3600 is an upgrade from a 1600 but not a big upgrade, lot of money for few things better. If i were you i would get a 3700 at minimum, for the money spended you will be much pleased. The B plan also is to found a 2700X or a 2700 because with the summer sale and the B550 that doesn''t accept them those 2 CPU are less expensive than your 3600.
