I agree. OP, i would go with DeathAngle's list and see if you can squeeze a 3600 instead.

See post # 22737.

I just had to make the decision, and I went with 2600. My stepson is about to get surprised with enough components for his first gaming PC build, he's a pretty serious xbox gamer. I didn't want to surprise him with a built PC, so I'm collecting parts and we will build it together so he can learn it inside and out.

So far I've picked up an Asus ROG Strix X470-F and AMD 2600 for him. He got lucky with the motherboard, I bought it for myself open box, and a bracket was missing when I started building my PC. Not wanting to wait, I went and bought what my local Best Buy had, an Asus Crosshair VII Hero, so I went ahead and built and tested the strix and 2600 in my system to make sure his board was good.

What he thinks is my old boxes stacked on the shelf is actually soon to be his introduction to building PC's.
