  1. 1600 is a great choice.
  2. I am actually on a budget , but will be ryzen 1400 suffice ? Or will be bottleneck the GTX 1060 in a few games
  3. Yes the 1400 is still a great choice for a 1060 6GB.
  4. Normally you buy a CPU then a GPU but really any Ryzen and or Intel I5 and up you will be all set!
  5. So the Ryzen 5 1400 won't bottleneck the GTX 1060 right , I guess I will go with the Ryzen 5 1400 then
  6. Best answer
    You are probably better off with the 1500x which comes between the 2.
    As long as its within budget it comes with higher base clocks & a better cooler.

    1500x has 16MB L3 Cache and the 1400 only has 8MB. The price difference in the US is only $20. So I would go with the 1500x if you are on a budget.
