Hello, Im planning to upgrade some parts of my pc in a month or so. Well Im gonna upgrade my CPU GPU RAM PSU and gonna add an SSD. So, In order for my new CPU to be compatible with my MOBO I have to complete a chipset driver update and BIOS Updates. The thing is that I wanna move my windows on the new SSD im gonna buy and I dont know how to do it. I have a CD version of windows 10. In what order should I change each part and do the updates and stuff? (Keep in mind that I should update my amd chipset drivers and BIOS so my new cpu works)

Current PC
CPU: ryzen 3 1200 --> ryzen 5 3600
GPU: rx 560 --> gtx 2060
RAM: 8 gb --> 16 gb
HDD: 1TB
SSD: gonna buy a 500 gb m2 samsung 970 evo
PSU: off branded 450w --> corsair tx550M

Make and model of your motherboard? You should find instructions on the site, if it's an ASRock board, to update the chipset drivers first then move ahead with a BIOS update.

So in this order, Chipset>BIOS>Ram>PSU>CPU.

My MOBO is a gigabyte a gigabyte A320M DS2
So the order remains the same?
And what should I do with the windows?
