The two processors are nearly identical in performance.  The 3600x has a slight edge and is more suited for Overclocking.

 

Personally I do not recommend over clocking, rather buy a bigger processor if power is what your looking for. 

 

To that end I would save a little money and go with the 3600.  But the price difference is not that great, so you might as well go for that extra little kick and get the 3600x

 

You can do a Google Search for CPU Benchmarks and select the Passmark web site. 

 

There you can see, what I consider, a legitimate non bias benchmarks for various components. 

 

There is very little bottlneck between the Ryzen 5 3600 and the higher end GPU's

Thanks for your valuable answer, I would rather buy a good one so that it won't give trouble in future. I'm doing some research on {removed per forum guidelines} and surely will go for it.
