I currently have MSI Z77A-G43 motherboard, and Intel i5-3350P CPU. I'm planning to upgrade my CPU to something like AMD Ryzen 5 2600X. Does this CPU fit my motherboard? If not, is there a good CPU alternative that will? Thank you in advance.

Intel has different socket and amd has different socket so you have to change your motherboard too.
