Current build needs an upgrade.
PC Purpose: Photoshop and Premier Pro.
Monitors: 2x Dell U2412M
CPU: Intel i7-2600K @3.4 GHz
GPU: GeForce GTX-460 PCIe
RAM: 16GB DDR3 Dual Channel (Corsair Vengeance Blue)
SSD: 240GB Crucial M500
HDD: 2x 1TB WD Caviar Black 7200 RPM, SATA 6.0 Gb/s
PSU: Antec EA-650 Platinum.
MOB: ASUS P8P67-M Pro (Rev 3.0)
Case: Antec Gaming Series 302

My thoughts: new MOB, Case, CPU, and 32GB RAM. Maybe get secondary SSD?

Please let me know best way to upgrade to work with Premier Pro.
 
I'm looking at upgrades vs new build. New build budget I'd guess around $2,000 and upgrades around $1,000?
I would go for a completely new pc,keep the storage.
Right now is a terrible time to build.
Intel 11th gen is right around the corner so i would def wait for that.
Prices of GPU's are ridiculous.
Basscially its the worst possible time to build a pc or replace parts.

Follow-up, pcpartpicker is giving me this warning for the 5800X and motherboard configuration:
Warning!Some AMD B550 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vermeer CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions.

Can I get a translation or work around since I won't have an older CPU?

You cant avoid it,but i believe that board has a bios flashback button which will make life a lot easier.

Perfect.
I would grab a beafier cooler for the 5800X if you plan to overclock it.
As soon as the GPU markrt normalizes,get a new card.
Prefferably a nvidia 3000 series or amd 6000 series card.
Well, got an RTX 2080 Ti and it failed. I'm returning the product and looking at an RX 6800. I can't find the exact model on part picker. Any concerns over compatibility I should be worried about?
