Hello! I'll be upgrading my PC and I'd like to have some GPU+CPU+mobo combos in mind when looking for parts during BF/CM next month.

Here's my current configuration:

I3-6100 3.7GHX/3MB/LGA1151/BOX
Nvidia GeForce GTX 750Ti
16GB (2x8) DDR3L 1600 1.35v
ASROCK H110M DVS D3 LGA1151
PSU SEASONIC SSR 430ST 430W
Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB
Seagate Desktop HDD ST1000DM003 1TB
Zalman ZM-T3 Mini Tower

As stated, I'd like to be able to play new games like Cyberpunk 2077 and AC: Valhalla on ultra, at 30fps and 1080p. I'm also using my PC for RAW photo editing, drawing and vector graphics, but nothing too heavy.
My budget is around 500-600 USD, but if it's not enough, I guess I could squeeze out another 100 bucks. Ideally I'd like a GPU and CPU combo that my 430W PSU can handle, so I won't have to upgrade that as well.

I live in Europe, so I'll be purchasing from local dealers or from amazon.co.uk. Right now I can get an i7-4770K 3.5GHz for about 200 USD or a Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6 GHz for 155, for example, but I don't know much about components and which ones would be better or how I should divide my budget.

Any help would be appreciated. :)

A ryzen 5 2600 would be good, but you should get newer ddr4 ram with your new mobo as well. for gpu the 5500xt 8gb vram for 180bucks is a sweeet deal.
Hm, yeah, I saw now that ryzen and the respective mobos don't support DDR3. Well, if I can get the 5500xt 8gb for 180 (it's more like 260 where I live right now), I could spare for new ram. :D

Any thoughts on the mobo? I'm thinking maybe MSI X470 GAMING PLUS ATX AM4, if I go for the ryzen.

It's a little pricier, but msi makes great motherboards imo.

Yeah, I guess I'll see what's on sale during BF and I may go for msi or something cheaper like Asrock b450m pro4.
Or just buy a PS5, hahah. If only Sony knew that 1 USD is not the same as 1 euro... :D

Anyway, thanks for the input! :)
