Hi all I'm been wanting a new pc ever since the Ryzen came out but been told for now might be
easier just to get an intel and swap out my fx-8350
Which I know isn't great even when it was relased.

So what should I do buy a better cpu and swap it or go for a full pc teardown and uograde.

I have

Fx-8350
Gtx 1060 3gb
500gb hardrive
Win 10 pro I think deffo win 10
16gb ram vulcan I think it's called
Asrock 970m pro3 motherboard
650w psu

I know main things that drag my pc or the CPU and hardive.

Can anyone help.

Either way the motherboard will need to be changed. The socket for the FX is AM3+, Intel and Ryzen both use sockets different to that so unless you go for another FX (maybe a better one) then mobo has to be changed too.

Get a solid state drive and install a clean setup of Windows on that, will act like a new machine, at least as far as general speed goes. Won't help with gaming speed really but will for sure make a difference till you replace the CPU/Motherboard.
