Hi Ryzen 5 1600 owner here.

If you still got bucks to spare for spending, you can get additional cores for 1700 which is also can be overclocked to the base clock speed of 1600x with is 3.6Ghz easily

Spending money on 1600x will just cost you additional money compare to buying just 1600.
1600 and 1600x are overclockable, 1600 and 1600x are almost identical for the core speed (having x has higher since its TDP is higher and uses higher volt)
but if you've got experience on overclocking you should go for 1600, you can match that core speed that 1600x has.

I'm giving you options here not just a "yes" or "no"

Glad if I helped.

A complete answer kind of depends on what your reservations are. nvduser1 kind of covered the topic if the stickler is 1600 vs 1600x but I do want to add that if choosing the 1600 for overclocking you should also factor in additional cost of getting an over-clockable motherboard which is one with at least a B350 chipset. Whereas the 1600x will allow you to get it's full performance even with a lower cost motherboard based on A320 chipset. So the cost factor could probably balance out depending on choice made there.

To make it even more confusing: an X370 (also overclockable) motherboard will be even more costly but allows for SLI if that's your goal. So you can see how a complete answer depends on what your reservations and goals are.
