I built my first PC in 2017 and have added to it since then. It comprises of:

CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 2400G with RX Vega 11 graphics
Mobo - Asus Prime B350 plus
RAM - Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory
HDD: Samsung 970 Evo Plus 500 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive
SSD: Samsung 870 Evo 1 TB 2.5" Solid State Drive
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB CERBERUS Video Card
PSU: SeaSonic FOCUS Plus Gold 550 W 80+ Gold
Case: Corsair 760T ATX Full Tower Case
Monitor: AOC G2590PX 24.5" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor

The LAN (Realtek® RTL8111H, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller) no longer works, so I use an Asus USB-AC68 instead. As the Ryzen 5 2400G will no longer be supported with Windows 11, I thought I may as well replace that as well as the Mobo.

Can anyone advise which Mobo & CPU I should buy please?

If your PC is doing everything you need it to their no reason to change anything. You can use W10 for 4 more years.

I know I can still use W10 until 2025, but I thought I may as well upgrade it now especially as I've been meaning to change the mobo since it lost the internet connection.
 
Maybe up to €500 for both mobo & cpu.

Thank you, I will look into your suggestions, especially the AMD Ryzen one.

Thank you for your reply. I quite like AMD as it has been very reliable for me, but I will look into the performance of Intel v AMD.
If you want to save money then use @Koekieezz Intel build and change the cpu to this one.

Intel Core i5 11400F 189,90 €

Reviews of that cpu with benchmarks.
