Ryzen 3 1300x + gtx1060 6gb OR ryzen 5 1600 + gtx 1060 3gb

I want to upgrade my gpu and cpu, and i understand about the bottleneck thing. But just to be clear, which one is better? I dont want to buy radeon gpu coz my psu only have 430W in it.
My questions remains the same for intel cpu's

  1. for me its super easy.

    1600+ gtx 1060 3gb, because the 1600 is a super strong cpu and I wouldn't need to upgrade it for a 1050 ti.
    also with a 1060 3gb you cna play every game (not on ultra 60fps but close).

    How much are you working with because the Ryzen 5 1600 + GTX 1060 3GB and Ryzen 3 1300X + GTX 1050 Ti combos cost significantly different. My guess is $450 where I would recommend getting the Ryzen 5 1400 + GTX 1060 6GB. 4 cores, 8 threads, 1080p gaming without compromise.
  3. 1060 3gb and 1300? Check it on YouTube
  4. what is your budget?
    cause you can opt to r5 1500x and gtx1060 6gb its much cheaper and the overclock almost the same
  5. I would vote for a 1060 6GB plus R5 1600. Get the 6GB definitely even if you have to step down in CPU due to budget constraints. 1060 6GB is not bottlenecked even by R3 1200 or R3 1300x OC'd. For best performance in gaming, sacrifice only the CPU if there is a budget constraint. Do not even consider the 3GB 1060. It not only has lesser VRAM but also lesser CUDA cores. It performs 5 to 10% lower than the 6GB version and this difference will increase in the near future games due to them utilizing hi res textures and more compute.
  6. Get the 1600 and whatever GPU at least GTX1050Ti or above you can afford...

    That way you only need to upgrade GPUs in 18-20 months or so...; with such reasonably priced R5-1600s out there, I'd never go less these days for gaming unless on a very tight shoestring budget in an African village or something....which would get a GTX1030 with a R3-1200! :)

    Go for the better CPU, which is in your scenario, the Ryzen 5 1600. It's easier to upgrade a GPU than upgrading the CPU, and GTX 1060 3gb is decent enough to handle 1080p games.
