Hello everyone!
I am quite stressed about this matter since it will be the first time I will upgrade, so I am trying to get as much info as possible about what could be done better or maybe any issues.

My current PC: Medion prebuilt: CPU: intel g3250; mobo: old and not for gaming; RAM; 4gb ddr3 @566Mhz; HDD: 1tb Toshiba that is in pure agony; GPU: Zotac GTX 1050; PSU; forgot brand but 350w.

Now I got this pc for 200€ about a year ago. My birthday is soon to come and I will get more money than I need so I’ll put it into the upgrade I want to make.

The upgrade I want to make is: CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 wraith stealth cooler @170€;; MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-AB350M gaming 3 (rev 1.0) //whatdoesthismean?\\ @100€;; RAM: G.Skill 16Gb DDR4-3200mhz 3200C16D-16GVKB 160€.

Will the upgrade be very good ?
Does it put me up to this gen?
Is it worth the price or are they inflated?

Thanks!

I am from Belgium.
I’d like to know how the motherboard is overcharging so I can learn.
Those upgrades will come with time but PSU is vital.
450€.
