Hi,
Recently looking at upgrading my gaming rig and looking for some feedback. Mainly looking at just the motherboard, ram and processor
Existing setup
Asus P8Z77-V motherboard
4x Kingston 4GB 240-Pin DDR SD RAM 1600
EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Graphics Card
Intel I5-3570 Processor
HDD 1TB Sata 3.0
SSD 500GB Samsung Evo 840
PSU 650W
NZXT H500i Case

New Setup
MSI ATX Motherboard Motherboards Z370-A PRO
Intel Core i7-8700K Processor
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3200MHz
HDD 1TB Sata 3.0
SSD 500GB Samsung Evo 840
PSU 650W
NZXT H500i Case

Not that it is required as my PC performs, but I feel like I’m getting some bottleneck when I try to play new games such as the new Anthem Demo, or playing Battlefield V my FPS drops hurt a lot. The 3 items I’m looking at now run roughly $850 and I’m not sure if maybe I should just invest in different parts.
Thanks in advance.

If you can live with your current setup a while longer I'd wait for ryzen 3000 to come out it'll either be the new top dog performance wise, or be close enough intel will have to drop prices to sell anything.
