2700x or 3600 for $50 more

2700x $159 - 15% = $135
3600 = $185

General use PC with a 1070; mainly gaming and some streaming/recording/editing. Upgrading from 1700x on a MSI B450m gaming plus with 16 gb 3200 mhz cas 16

If mainly gaming, 3600 all the way.

Looks like roughly 10% in games

For 27% more cost and less cores/threads ? I agree at same cost or more but for the savings on the 2700x I think I'll stick with it

If you do anything else than gaming like streaming video editing go for 2700x

^this. Got a 2700 and 3600. Don't see a difference between the two prolly cos only have a mid tier card (5700XT) and low Hz 1440 monitor.

EDIT: Here is a screenshot of both cpu with a 5700. Same game but defo different part of game, so might not be totally accurate comparison.

I'd go R5 3600, my main two reasons are below.

Zen/Zen+ does not have CPPC (Collaborative Processor Performance Control), so OS is unaware of best performing cores, so can not target those prior to other cores.

Zen/Zen+ is not as great for RAM compatibility and OC'ability as Zen2. RAM that I used with Zen/Zen+ is doing 3800MHz @ 1.35V on my R5 3600 and 3733MHz on R7 3700X, the only reason the R7 3700X is at 3733MHz is as it can't do FCLK of 1900MHz to allow optimal usage of 3800MHz MEMCLK.

Another reason I like Zen2 is it's power efficiency.

It depends on resolution

1080p gaming = 3600
1440p/4k plus anything that's not gaming = 2700X (pretty much same performance but for less $$)

3600 great cpu just maybe not worth 37% more $ in this case

You are more GPU bound than CPU, TPU 1440P overall table places R5 3600 above R7 2700X, link and 4K is same result. In encoding the R5 3600 takes the R7 2700X, link.

IMO what the extra money is going towards is as stated before. Having experienced Zen/Zen+/Zen2 I know which I'd be buying.
