Hi! Recently my PSU burned. And when i opened my pc i realized i need a upgrade.
My specs:
Windows 10 home 64-bit
Cpu: intel core i5 4460
Ram: 16gb ddr3
Motherboard: gigabyte h81m-hd3
Gpu: evga gforce gtx ftw 1080 dt
Ssd: 250gb
Hdd: 1tb
Psu: coolermaster elite series 600w (burned)

I was thinking to upgrade my motherboard,cpu,ram and psu of course.

MSI MAG Z490 Tomahawk

G.Skill Trident Z RGB Series, DDR4-3000, CL 16 - 16 GB Dual Kit

Intel Core i5-10600 3,30 Ghz (Comet Lake) Socket 1200

Corsair TX750M Series Modular Power Supply


What is your opinions?
Any better and cheaper advise?

Thanks for the time!

I would first like you to see if the rest of your components aren't compromised in the PSU burnout. Often times a bad quality PSU with bad innards can and will take out your storage devices(or things you want to recycle over onto another build) apart from the case(sometimes).

Pick DDR4-3200MHz rams, at the very least. If you have funds, go higher like 3600MHz. Where are you located?

I agree but isn't the 10600k the best cpu for gaming?
I might be wrong i am a casual.
And i know i am getting picky but i prefer intel.
Also i can't order from Amazon cuz the shipping cost more than the product itself. And the ryzen cpus here in cyprus are pretty much the same price with intel cpus.
