You could upgrade to a i7 6700, but you would have to look on the used market and it will cost $200+, which is above the cost of a new cpu and board. So I'd suggest just changing platforms to either amd am4 or intel lga 1200.

What is your psu model and your ram+ram speed?

I was looking for an i7 10700k. The ram speed is 2133, i think i will need to buy some new ram too

You'll need a z490 board, any will be fine except the asrock phantom or pro 4 and the gigabyte UD, those overheat like mad. Yes, you'll definitely need new ram.

What's your psu?

You can hold on your current setup and wait for new amd chips if you care. Though the 10700k is a very nice chip already.

I dont exactly know the psu model because my first gaming pc was an alienware aurora r5 and i got the psu from there. The psu has 850W.
