Upgrade CPU, motherboard, ram and maybe PSU

Hello
I considering upgrading my PC, but idk which CPU should i buy ryzen or Intel i rly dont know (iam Intel guy but AMD seems rly good option too - change my mind please :) )

I know i have to replace motherboard and ram along with CPU.
The PC is primary for Gaming, i feel like my CPU is bottlenecking my GPU in games like black ops 4, and World of Warcraft and Tomb raider, etc..

So which components should i buy ? Make please some suggest. Budged is 700eur but lower is better.

AMD RYZEN 7 2700X seems rly nice but Intel Core i5-9600K, i5-8600K, maybe I7 seems rly good too (Maybe go for AMD because i wont need to replace motherboard along with new CPU in future ? Considering i wont replace CPU in next 5years).


Next thing, is that i never changed motherboard the new motherboard will fit in my case because its ATX right ? Are there any tricks before replacing old motherboard with new cpu and psu ? Wil be thermal paste part of CPU part of package?

What about Windows with old Chipset do i need reinstal windows after upgrade ? Currently using windows 7


Case - Cooler Master Force 500 Black
Ram - CRUCIAL 16GB (kit 4x 4GB) Ballistix Sport 1600MHz CL9 DDR3
Current CPU - Intel Core i5-3570K - procesor, socket 1155

More about upgrade cpu motherboard ram psu
  1. amd ryzen 7nm looks good for it price. intel 9x cpu from online reports runs very hot. on intel side would wait now for there newer 10nm chips. due to there lack of cpu chips there cpu chips now are way over priced.
  2. You got a 144hz display.

    Wait for ryzen 7nm and see if it's performing good and giving 120+fps in 2k benchmarks.

    If not, go for Intel 9th gen.
  3. Thanks, yeah i dont want wait, so i decidet to go with intel

    I dont know which one should i choose Intel Core i5-8600K or Intel Core i5-9600K ?
    But i considering Intel Core i7-8700K buts thats damm expensive vs I5, and when i watched youtube i5-8600K is good as i7 but due to TH its works with less CPU usage in games, so that might be good for FUTURE.
  4. the 9600k and z390 looks good.
  5. so i picked

    Seasonic Focus Plus Gold - 750W
    Intel Core i5-9600K
    ADATA XPG GAMMIX D10 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2666
    MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PLUS - Intel Z390

    How is that seems ? its ok ?
    will all fit in my case ? etc. ? thanks
