Hey guys i think its about time for my old PC to retire so here i am looking for viable options to replace the parts.
What i want to achieve with this new one(hopefully!) is to run the next gen games such as cyberpunk, etc on at least high or if possible ultra specs for the next few years on 1080p res so first here is my old PC T__T
-----------------------------------------
CPU: Intel Core i5 - 4460 3.20 GHz (Quad-core)
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97X-GAMING
Memory: Crosair-Vengeance pro 8GB DDR3(Model : CS-CMY16GX3M2A160C9R)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB
Video Card: GTX 760 Windforce 4GB
Case : Green - Falcon --->(https://www.game-debate.com/cases/index.php?ca_id=68&cases=Green - Falcon)
---------------------------------------
Anyways i had a great run with this PC but i think now its time for a change, and as i pointed out in title my budget is around 1200$.

Thanks in advance :))
 
$1000 is a nice budget. I would start with picking a video card. The 2080 variants are probably a bit high for your build, so I would compare the 2070s and 5700s. Look at benchmarks for the games you like because each has their own strengths.

Motherboards don't make your system faster, but a good motherboard will be more stable than a poor one. Figure out what features are important to you and then get a motherboard with those specs.

I think 16GB RAM is enough ... others will argue that you need 32 ... compromise is 2 sticks of 8 and the ability to add 2 more later.

CPU ... AMD and Intel both make compelling CPUs. Again, look at benchmarks for the games you like and find the one that works best for you. The i5-9600k and Ryzen 7 2700 are a good starting point, but there are a ton of options out there (more cores vs more speed, etc)

PSU ... Do you need to replace?

SSD ??

Don't have a SSD and no i don't think my PSU will carry anything higher than 2060 so i have to change that also(built this PC from part time while i was in collage couldn't afford more T___T), but still can you recommend parts based on what i asked?--> (ability to run the games from 2020 such as cyberpunk,bloodlines, etc)<--
and while im at it are the builds in forum>system page, any good ? the 1500$ ones and 1000$ ones!

Assuming you want to stay at 1080 and not go up to 1440 this would be a solid build. The only catch is getting a hold of aib 5700s. You could go up to a 2060 super but it would put you over 1200. There is also the 3600x at $50 more.

Over $1200 build- This would probably be overkill for 1080 but would allow you to upgrade to 1440 in the future. I went an almost identical build and I am very happy with it. Same problem as the 5700s right now. Could go with a 2060 super or for $100 more a 2070 super.

Hey, so both builds look good but you added OS so both got a 120$ increase (i already have the newest OS) taking that into consideration you think its better to go with a 2070 super? Or just cut expenses here and there and get a 2080

My builds are all good there! /plug :)

I do recommend getting an SSD especially since you can get a 1TB M2 drive for about $100 and they make everything better. Anything hex or octo core AMD is good right now, if you want to stick with Intel the 9700K is a good choice as well.

If you want to spend $1500 I would recommend something like this:
