What CPU should I get for my build.

I'm planning to build a computer and can't decide on the CPU. I have: -Gigabyte GTX 1070 8GB G1 Gaming -Fractal Design Node 202 w/ 450W Power Supply -Kingston A400 480GB

I'm planning to buy VulcanZ 16GB 3000MHz memory for $59.99CAD for the build on Boxing day at Canada Computers and the ASUS B450-I ITX motherboard for $179.99CAD.

At Canada Computers the CPU's will be -Ryzen 5 2600 $159.99CAD -Ryzen 5 2600X $169.99CAD -Ryzen 7 2700X $219.99CAD

Which of the CPU's should I get for this build? Is there anything I should change?

In an HTPC case, TDP is a consideration: 2600/65w, 2600X/95w & 2700X/105w.

That RAM is a good price.

If you do contend creation stuff and streaming then get the 2700X.

Otherwise, the 2600X will be perfectly fine.
