What would bottleneck more aka whats the better cpu+gpu combo for a 900 dollar max budget?

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X + RTX 2060 AMP 6GB

Or

AMD Ryzen 5 2600 + 1660 Ti 6 GB GAMING AMP

I really need to know so i dont waste hundreds and not get the best performance and nothing is being held back

Their almost no difference in in to 2 processors for gaming performance for the video cards their about a 15% difference.

So if you look at it in FPS about 0 in the processors and for the cards if you were getting 100 FPS with the 1660ti you could get 115 with the 2060 (all depending on the game of course)

So nothing being bottlenecked or held back?

No, nothing should bottleneck at all

Their never been a PC built without a bottleneck and never will be. A bottleneck is just the slowest part doing a certain task and can change to a different part using different programs or games.

The two CPUs are nearly identical to one another, as far as performance goes. The 2060 is better in terms of performance, but only marginally.

The better question is what you plan on doing with the PC. Are you playing graphically intensive games like the new Call of Duty, Monster Hunter World, etc? Or do you plan to play CPU intensive games like Civilization, GTA V, and so on?

Bottlenecking exists wherever the weakest component is, but that depends on what you're trying to do. Everything will always break down to how you use the PC, but the lowest common denominator, the weakest link, the weakest component, will determine where a bottleneck may occur. You could have an overclocked i9 9900k and a 2080ti, but if you only have 4 GB of RAM you won't get far.

Im planning on getting 2x8GB 3200 RAM with the 2600X and 2060 AMP 6GB is that ok?

That should hold you over quite well for a long time. Again, it does depend somewhat on what you're trying to play with the PC, but the 2600X and 2060 should be able to handle most things you throw at it.

The 1660 Super is almost equal to the 1660 Ti, so either get the 1660 Super, or move up to the 2060.
