I am throwing some builds together. I have almost decided on an RTX 2070 super for my GPU. Would I be selling myself short by getting the Ryzen 5 3600 as a CPU?

The 3600 is the best price to performance ratio CPU that AMD has to offer, for any kind of resolution and up to a RTX 2080Ti as gaming concerns.

For content creation stuff, you may wanna step up to a 3700X or even higher AMD processor.

You must research games you want to play and temper your expectations and builds. If you want a build that will play every single game at > 100fps or so I have some bad news for you - it is impossible. If you wish to build a PC that will play a wide variety of modern titles at 60fps or more at 1440p (and 1080p) the RTX 2070 Super and Ryzen 5 3600 will achieve that goal. Your expectation must be that not every game will hit that goal. If there is such a game, the solution is simple, rather than throw copious amounts of money to fix bad, just do not buy it.

Depends on if the 3600 meets your needs or not.

If it meets then you have no worries.

If it doesn't then it doesn't.

This isn't something that a blanket Yes or No can answer.
