So i want to upgrade my computer, my processor and my ram more specifically. Right now i got this specs :
CPU : AMD FX-8320
Motherboard : Asus M5A97 R2.0
Ram : 4 * 4Go DDR3 700MHz
Graphics : Radeon Sapphire RX-580

And the component i have in mind right now are :
CPU : Ryzen R5 2600X
Motherboard : MSI B450 Gaming Plus
Ram : 2 * 8Go Ballistix 2666MHz

Is it a good idea to buy this stuff right now ? Should i wait a little ? Is there better components to buy ?
Also i got a Be quiet BQT L7-530W for my power supply, wich is around 4 to 5 years old, can i keep it or should i buy something else ?

Thank you for any informations and answers.

Are those components a better idea ?
CPU : Ryzen 5 3600
Motherboard : MSI B450 Gaming plus
Ram : 2*8Go DDR4 3200MHz corsair vengeance pro
PSU : Cooler Master MWE Gold 550 Full Modular

I think i will go with this, maybe the Ryzen 5 3600X is better but it is a little bit too much for my bank account.
Thanks for the advice.
If anyone got any other tips or ideas don't hesitate.

The 3600x is not worth the increase in price. That looks good, but I would go with a Seasonic Focus Gold, or Evga G3, power supply. The motherboard will need a bios update, to work, but that board supports bios flashback, so no worries there.
