Hey all!

I'm thinking about upgrading my PC (for gaming) and my initial plan is to spend something around 450 USD. I want to update my CPU but I'm not sure if I should stick with Intel or I should try AMD, since I'll also need to change my MB now.

This is my current setup:
  • MB: ASRock H81M-HDS (LGA 1150)
  • CPU: i5-4460 Haswell @ 3.20GHz, 3199 MHz
  • GPU: GTX 1080
  • Memory: 8GB DDR3 1600Mhz
  • Case: Zalman - Z3 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case
  • Monitor: Asus VS239H
  • PSU: Corsair - Builder 500W 80+ Bronze Certified
I'll appreciate any help!
Thanks!

If gaming is what you mainly intend the upgrade for, Intel still has a significant lead in most games if you don't mind the $50-100 extra cost over a comparable Ryzen build.

The other option is to wait and see what happens with Ryzen 3xxx before upgrading.
