    I'm looking to build a PC and was wondering if I should use a 3600x or 9600k? The PC would be mostly used for gaming with games such as BeamNG, GTA, and other racing/sim games. Also, the GPU will be a 2060 Super. What is your recommendation?

    Both are great CPUs, so you'll want to look at other factors like if you need Thunderbolt support or not, total cost of the build, etc. Neither one of those CPUs will let you down. I'd personally go with the Ryzen 5 with an X570 chipset motherboard in your situation.

    I have ryzen 5 3600 570x tuf mother board, its very good fro my experience, cuz i can spawn easy 20 vehicles in beamng and have 60 fps, the only limit my gtx 660 rn lol

    Are those in-game vehicles or third party mods? Nonetheless 20 vehicles at 60 FPS is very impressive....

    D series trucks on an open map, i wouldn't get 60 normal maps cuz its just to much for my gpu to handle lol
    modded depends on the mod cuz some let 14 some let 10 it depends

    you can get a used 570/580 for 100$ and it will outperform the 660 by twice or 3 times the fps

    Well, it is bit more complex than that with this game, but yeah, with few cars your GPU is limit, then things change and CPU is limit even with faster CPUs.

    Look at these, we both have gtx 1080, we get pretty much same results until 20 cars or so with close to same clock speeds, mine 4.4Ghz, his 4.4-4.5Ghz

    8086K 1080p by me

    I can get roughly 10% higher fps with higher overclock, not sure about 3900X, with more cores it is more difficult to achieve very high clocks for all cores and 10% increase in fps is still pretty much nothing really.

    So, maybe this somehow helps to understand something about game's performance.

    For a same clock speed 3900X and 8th gen i7 are so close to each other, I would say that Ryzen is bit better with same clock speed, but it is around 0.1-0.2Ghz difference.

    So if across all cores Intel has 4.3Ghz, Ryzen would do same with 4.1-4.2Ghz.

    Number of cores then, more cores than 6 might add performance boost in future of BeamNG, but nobody knows yet, most certainly more than 6 cores will help past 20 D15 at Italy, spawn 8-10 different cars and I'm not sure if 6 cores is much better than 4, use some other map like JRI and 8 cores might do better than 6 cores, that makes it difficult to say anything too concrete about limit being gpu or cpu or number of cores etc.

    First person shooter games are ones that use many cores quite well, future gaming and many other tasks like rendering etc. use more cores so there then more cores will help more.

    Same number of cores, same clock speed on all cores loaded and AMD as well as Intel do pretty much the same, you can't go badly wrong unless you pick a model which does not keep as high clock speeds when all cores are loaded.

    If you get more cores for same price while having the clock speed, always go for that as there is going to be more use for extra cores.

    I would but, I live in Nova Scotia so prices are out of the world, but umm I'm getting an RTX 2070 or 2060 soon anywa, and put 100 in this computer cuz I already spent 40 on gt 730 that sucked bad, wouldn't be really worth it to so, I'm just saving up for the RTX card, and besides got 660 for a really good price of 40 bucks, its7 year old card but it dose really we'll for being this old, way better 960m in my laptop lol thanks for letting me know :)
