Hi, Im looking for recommendations for a new CPU and Mobo because my stuff is getting relatively old and I need to be able to run Cyberpunk 2077 like I can run the witcher 3 now lol. My current set up is a 980ti, i5-4690k and gigabye z97x sli mobo with 16gb hyperx fury. I dont really have a budget but I always want good value, it needs to last me a few years and so lets say 500-600 USD for everything. Also, I will probs need new ram im guessing so recommendations for that would be appreciated as well! Thanks so much!

I forgot to say, I am happy with either amd or intel, I will be happy spending less money and getting near the same value, it just needs to last a few years and run most high end games at 60fps pretty much.

Hey thanks for the comment, I just realized its way cheaper in the US(just converted the cpu price off your link to GBP and ended up being 623USD, yikes, i live in the UK so everything here is shit expensive compared to that therefore Ill have to bring the budget down a bit. Maybe you could reconsider, thanks.

I'd wait and see what next generation Ryzen CPUs offer, Tuesday there should be an announcement. Even if you do go with Intel the prices should drop due to competition.
 
Either wait for next gen. Ryzen or go with something like this...
