Hello,

My motherboard asrock steel legend b450 is currently 1.5 years old and running ryzen 2400g + 16GB ddr4 3000Mhz + gtx 1660 super.
I would like to upgrade the cpu to better 8 core one and I have shortlisted,

Ryzen 7 3700X
Ryzen 7 3800XT
Ryzen 7 5800X

per https://www.asrock.com/mb/amd/b450 steel legend/#CPU all the above CPUs are supported (but I believe, I will have to upgrade the firmware)

I plan to do this to get better performance in gaming (msfs2020 mainly).
And also to get my pc eligible for windows 11 upgrade.
Any thoughts?
