Hello there !
In the last couple of days, I've been thinking that I should update my CPU, especially to play a game called Tera, that I can't manage to run smooth with my actual config. ( seems like it needs a lot of CPU ressources ). I also want to replace my motherboard, since it's a quite old one ^^
Here's my actual config :
CPU : i7-3770K
Motherboard : GIGABYTE B75M-D3H
GPU : Nvidia Geforce GTX 1660 Ti
SSD : Crucial MX 500 250G
HDD : 1To one (idk where to find the brand / model)
PSU : Corsair TX650M
RAM :
-3x Kingston KHX1600C10D3/4G
-1x Kingston KHX1600C9D3/4GX

Thanks in advance,
Maël
PS : Sorry if my english is bad, i'm not english ^^

Okay well thanks ^^. Just another question, if I really want a quite big improvement, how much do I need to pay ? I could go higher if there is a big difference
 
With the Ryzen 3600? You can use the same mobo and RAM as in the Ryzen 2600 build above if you want.

...I see Amazon already sold out of that kit.....Amazon is so annoying.

X570 boards will be in the €200 range. B550 boards are launching mid-June and should be between B450 and X570 pricing.
 
MSI's "Max" series B450 and X470 boards are GUARANTEED to SHIP with a Ryzen 3000 compatible BIOS installed. Unless a particular board has the BIOS flashback feature (which allows you to update the BIOS without a CPU installed), then there's a chance you get a board with an older BIOS version that doesn't yet support Ryzen 3000, and you'd need to get a Ryzen 2000 CPU to perform the BIOS update before you can use the Ryzen 3600. Most/many (physical) computer stores will offer a BIOS update service. And I guess AMD has a CPU lending program for BIOS updates also.

Oh okay, I understand for the motherboard ^^
As for ram, I didn't understand everything, but what do you recommend me to pair with the 3600 ( on amazon if possible ), I mean that's quite stupid since you already answered but I wanna be sure that I buy the right stuff :3

Basically more speed = faster but more expensive, less CL = faster but more expensive. You can go with the highest speed and lowest CL possible, but that is not effective. 3200 MHz and CL16 is usually the most effective in terms of price and speed.

I'd take a look at something like this:

Oh, and one last thing ( after a long time, sorry bout that ), shouldn't I take a B450 Tomahawk Max ( I see a lot of people recommend it ). I think I found it on amazon.fr : https://www.amazon.fr/MSI-B450-Tomahawk-Prise-S-ATA/dp/B07VB2BG3X. I don't really know the difference between this B450 and yours, so I wanted to know what's different ^^
B450 and x470 are the chip-sets used on the motherboards. The X series chip-sets are the high-end chip-sets while the B series are the entry level or mid-range. However, that said, the Tomahawk B450 is viewed as a great board because it has good heat-sinks and VRMs. VRMs are what control the voltage to your CPU and allow for overclocking.
