Hi everyone. I have to improve my pc, it's getting so slow in mi daily workflow. I have to handle a lot of pictures every day, and editing short videos in 1080p for Youtube, twice a week. And also use the pc as a media center, Netflix, Youtube and stuff like that. I don't play any games.

I have this configuración:
Intel Pentium G3420 1150 LGA, dual core 3,2 ghz
Motherboard MSI H81M-P33
RAM Kingston Value 8GB DDR3 3200 mhz CL11
GeForce GTX 950 2Gb DDR5 with two 32" screens connected via HDMI and Displayport
1 SSD de 120 Gb for OS, and one HD 2 TB.
Power source Hollowtech BPS 600 W

I'm looking to upgrade only motherboard, CPU and RAM with 350-450 $, maybe a bit more.

What do you think about this:
OPTION A
AMD Ryzen 5 1600
Asus A320M-K
Hyperx Fury 2x8 GB, 2400MHz, DDR4, CL15 DIMM
And perhaps a bigger ssd m.2

Or should go for:
OPTION B
AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Any B350 motherboard (suggestions?)
Same hyperx 16 Gb RAM kit

Other option is going for entire CPU:
OPTION C
Ryzen 3 1200
Asus A320M-K
Just one 8Gb RAM stick
SSD 240 Gb m.2
New power source

Did my GTX 950 work well with those configurations? Should I upgrade It too?

Which option would works well looking for low budget/performance?

People said that Ryzen works better than Intel with media edition software and multitask, but, there is any option of a worth upgrade with my limited budget?

Thanks a lot.

Option "B" should be a B450 motherboard, IMO.
