I probably wouldn't if I had a 3000 part, but TechSpot* got an average of like ~65% and 55% increase in FPS avg. and mins across games for a 5600X vs 1600X and 2600X at 1080p max settings, seems like a decent enough jump from Zen1/+ even if you didn't want more cores

*from the graph at the end https://www.techspot.com/review/2135-amd-ryzen-5600x/

Probably upgrade my R5 2600 if it bottlenecks a RX 6800 at 1440p.

Not worth it, unless you do heavy multithreaded workloads, which I personally don’t. So I’ll just keep my 3700X.
Yup same story here. I certainly don't need the threaded performance and for gaming my rig is brilliant. Given my new hobby is PUBG pretty much every night I would say I am very happy with how all of my rigs perform.

A 3700x is still a very meaty CPU. Especially when threading and multi tasking. I would say that I would only really want a 5000 series if I were gaming at 1080p super competitively and was still young enough to have the reactions needed for 200+ FPS games. I don't though, as I have found out over the past two months in PUBG.

Even my 1920x TR chips at 4.1ghz and 1440p are more than enough to batter out anything.

If you don't like what I post don't read it.
