Confused between Ryzen 5 3600X and Ryzen 5 3600XT. Both are retailing around 22K in the Amazon. I have zeroed in on a B550 Chipset (Gigabyte B550 Aorus Elite). Should I wait for the 4th Gen to be launched or should I go ahead with 3600X or 3600XT. Currently I own a laptop so this is my 1st build.

Amazon generally has bad prices. Wait for 4th gen if you can.

I think you can buy right away if there is urgency.

Obviously, next Zen will be faster but 3600 isn't a slouch.

The 3600XT is an improved Ryzen 5 3600 / 3600X that features higher clocks for a slight boost in performance.

My advice is you wait a few more days.
The Zen 3 Ryzen 5000 processors will be available to buy from 5 November 2020.
