Hi everyone, I am new here and nice to meet you all.

I am considering to upgrade both my CPU and GPU. For GPU, I am already aiming for 2060/2070. But for CPU, I am not really sure which to go for. I am kind in between mid to high end builds. Could someone suggest any good/budget CPU to upgrade ? (intel/amd are fine)

And the next question, if I were to upgrade both CPU and GPU will my existing mobo, psu able to support ?

Specs as below :
CPU - AMD FX6300
Mobo - MSI 970 Gaming
GPU - GTX 960
PSU - 520w
RAM - 16GB

Reason for upgrade : 5 years old desktop, GPU seems out of date, CPU hitting almost cap when gaming.

your mobo support
AMD FX-8350 4 GHz 8-Core Processor
and i think no point to buy this...best solution for you is new build

Oh dear, seems like almost similar to 6300 and it's a 8 year old processor...
Seems like I am in a situation where change one = change all.

Thanks a lot, I've been doing some searching.. Seems like R5 3600 and RTX 2060 super is the best choice.
Now on to the motherboard / casing
