    Hello! I'm planning to upgrade my old FX-6100 setup to:

    Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 1600AF
    Motherboard: MSI B450-A PRO MAX, socket AM4
    RAM: HyperX Fury Black 8GB, DDR4, 2400MHz, CL15, 1.2V
    I have Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER 4GB и Seasonic 430W

    Is that going to be enough to run 3-4 cars at the same time 60FPS@1080p at medium graphics?

    Thank you!

    EDIT: Maybe Ryzen 5 3500X is a better choice?

    The i5 10400f is right around the same price
    and is about as powerful as the r5 3600 so
    if you can I'd go with that.

    Much better choice than a 1000 series.

    I have the same CPU. It's a great choice (not so much since the release of 11th gen i5 CPUs but anyway), it'll run BeamNG wonderfully.

    I just got it today and I'm happy with the performance! :)
    But for now I have 8GB DDR4@3200MHz.

    For better performance in BeamNG, and just in general, I would definitely upgrade to 16GB. You should get the same brand, and definitely the same speed.
