AMD I believe gives you better value for money.
Better parts than you have already mentioned.

If you're going budget, AMD is worth looking at from a cost to performance perspective. For example, a ryzen 5 2600x is very competitive in that price range, with more threads.

Welcome to the forums my friend?
What is your budget and location?
What GPU are you getting (it just says GTX)?

Definitely upgrade the PSU.
You may want to consider an SSD, it's practically a must nowadays.
Also what speed RAM is it?
You shouldn't need an aftermarket CPU cooler.
