Am4 supports ecc afaik but it is dependent on your processor. The “pro” series support ecc. I’ve been using normal ram with my server. No real issues experienced.

Main difference between 5600G and 5600X, 5600G is only PCIe 3.0 instead of 4.0. So if you get the 5600G, don't pay extra for a m.2 PCIe 4.0, your just wasting your money there.

Seriously a good deal for the 5600G at 169.99 at memory express:

Canadacomputer has the 5600G for 159.99:

Motherboard will probably cost the same or more than the CPU.

This is a thread about the 5500, which is a 5600g without integrated graphics. The 5600x is faster than these. If you don’t need integrated graphics and are ok with 5600g performance, just get the 5500. $40 for more for integrated graphics isn’t bad, but many people have a gpu anyway.

Going from a 5600g to a 5600x, we are talking a good 30 fps boost in many games if you have a good enough gpu, other tasks can be even more benefited.

Been out of the loop when it comes to PC parts but can anyone more savvy tell me what if I can upgrade my processor to this without needing to change anything else like motherboard?

Im currently running
Processor:
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Socket AM4 (1331)
Motherboard:
TUF GAMING X570-PLUS (WI-FI) (AM4)
Graphics:
4095MB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER

Do I need to upgrade only to other x600 processor or could this do? Would it be worth upgrading?

Thanks

I have the same CPU and motherboard with a NVIDIA GT 1030.

You can upgrade to Ryzen 5000 series processors.

Ryzen 6000 series is for laptops.
Ryzen 7000 series is for new socket AM5, not compatible with your current motherboard.


I am planning to upgrade to Ryzen 7 5700x or 5800x 8-core CPU this Black Friday.

Heads up, check your bios first to make sure it supports 5000 series. May have to do an update. Look at the procedure as you may want to keep your 3000 installed till after the bios update.

Not worth upgrading unless you're gonna go all out and get a high end cpu and gpu.

Also add the 5600G only has 16mb of L3 cache whereas the 5600 and 5600x has 32mb. The bigger L3 cache is beneficial for gaming.

Would be a decent upgrade from anyone running an old Ryzen system, especially a Ryzen 1000/2000.

If the game holds value for you AND you just need and cheap CPU AND you already have a GPU to pair with this, then its a fine deal. For everyone else, I would recommend going for the 5600 (non-X) for budget AM4 CPUs (whether a new budget build, or a drop in upgrade for older CPUs). The 5500 is a bit too much of a comprimise for most people.
