I am trying to enter overlocking for my cpu and gpu. but do I need to overclock my gpu even if I had a cap 60hz 4kmonitor? I wont be getting more fps on that plus I have the asus rtx 2080. I have no problem playing games actually but the cpu needs to keep up since its just an ryzen 5 2600x I just want no bottlenecking to happen.

No, not really. Some games will perform extremely well at 4K with your 2080, some will not. Adjust settings for the games that run a little slower, nothing wrong with medium settings if that is what it takes to play smoothly.

Had this Ryzen released just three years ago, it would have been the best consumer CPU by a mile. It is far more powerful that you think. It trades blows with an i7-8700K CPU which is still considered one of the best CPU's for gaming. It will not be holding back on any GPU available now or released in next 5 years.

Oh yeah definitely if you are going to overclock the Intel wins hands down. With a bit of silicon lottery luck, you could be a whole GHZ up on the Ryzen. There is no way the 2600X can compete with 25% less clock speed. At the other end though, stock settings, there is not a large difference, Intel a smidge faster across the board but Ryzen 2600X certainly good enough to be in the same class.

Agreed, I would take Ryzen 5 2600X over non K i7 as well unless I was building a super miniature rig in which case the i7 - 8700 non-K might be a little easier to cool.

At 4K the processor does play a second role. The most load goes to the GPU.

GPU performance at 4K

CPU performance at 4K

As you can see, even a Ryzen 1300X would keep up very well at 4K.
