Hi,i currently have:
- i3-3240,gigabyte r9 380 4gb,16gb (2x8gb )ddr3 1333mhz,chieftec elp-700s 700W,lenovo ih61m
And im planning to upgrade the cpu to the i7-3770 in late June/beginning of July
Im just wondering what will be my future upgrade path,at least what do you recommend.

Will switching to ryzen make more sense.
Will upgrading to more powerful intel cpus make sense
Will buying ps5 make sense

Also i want to address that im planning on upgrading my gpu with the possible switches/upgrades i listed above.I play most of the games on everything low and maybe some settings set to high/on capped at 75fps so it mathces the Hz with my monitor,so keep that in mind when you recommend me new build so i dont have to spend much money on the upgrade.Also,i plan on using i7-3770 build for 1-2 maybe 3 years until i save money for that switch.
All replies are appreciated.

Edit:Lets say the budget is 500 euros.I dont mind going to the 700-800 euro range,but not over that.Also this is only for the pc/ps5,not the setup

The only thing i would change is the storage and the gpu.I would replace the hdd and ssd,with only 1tb sdd.I think 8gb gpu would be perfect.Last september i considered making this build:https://pcpartpicker.com/user/DjerizCigan/saved/#view=zBnht6 ,but things changed since then,and as we all know,money is hard to get during these times,so i had to think about what i want,and i decided to continue with my pc which until the may had 1 stick of 8gb ram and a 500W,and because of that 500W psu which i bought back in december for my r9 i wasnt able to game since the pc crashed in march,and i was stuck 2 months without gpu.Then i bought a psu from my uncle,and a cople of weeks later he suprised me with another stick of 8gb ram so its 16 total.That motivated me to continue with my build and honestly the only thing that needs to be changed is the i3 cpu,which im replacing in june.Thanks for the suggestion,and i will see what new components come to us in the next 2-3 years.Until then i plan on using my i7 build
