So as the title says i want to change cpu and gpu without changing motherboard . My specs now :
Motherboard : Prime A320M-K
CPU : Ryzen 3 2200G
GPU: GTX 1050
Power Supply: Corsair VS650
And i would like to upgrade maybe on Ryzen 5 2600X and RTX 2060 . Will i have any problem ?
Do you think i should consider buying another part(which one and why)?

You could go with a Ryzen 3600 / 3600X

As far as the RTX2060, that might be a bit more than is worth. What monitor do you have? Something 1080p 60Hz?

The reason i will buy a new cpu and gpu is because i will buy a new monitor too .
I didn't decide yet which one i will get but it will probably be 27' 144hz 1ms but im trying to be around 250€ .
Is it better to have better resolution or better response time?

AOC 27'' FHD VA 165Hz C27G2AE/BK
or
Samsung CJG50 27'' Curved Gaming Monitor
or
???

Αs far as the processor I do not look at anything more like the 3600 because I do not think I need anything better than 2600 .
I wouldn't mind staying with my old one if i had normal percentage bottleneck.

I would guess something along the lines of a 1660 GTX would pair up nicely with your 2200g.

My advice on the monitor is just to get a gsync compatible monitor. Having a monitor that syncs your FPS to your monitor is a big improvement worth investing in.

Gotcha, if you're getting a high refresh rate 1080p monitor, then a RTX2060 is worthwhile.

I don't know what country you're shopping in, but a faster CPU does help to reach higher FPS. Not sure what the price difference is between a Ryzen 2600 and 3600 in your country. (or even what your total budget for CPU+GPU+monitor is)

The 2600x is supported as of bios level 3803.
Best to update the bios before swapping the processors.

While not considered as a quality psu, your VS650 is sufficient to power a RTX2060.
I would pass on one of the highly overclocked versions of the RTX2060 that need more than simple 8 pin power.

As to monitor, bust your budget if you need to for a great one.
A monitor can be a long term investment.

If your games are visually intense, like mmo, strategy or sims, then opt for the higher image quality of a IPS panel.
And, perhaps a higher than 1080P resolution.
And, consider a unit that is wider which is more immersive.

If your games are fast action games, a faster tn panel and better speed would be better.

All the prices are in my country (Greece). ryzen 5 2600 is around 120€ and 3600 is 90-100€ more and RTX is around 330-350€ (sadly)
i can spend 600-700€ but i'm trying to spend as less as i can . What i want is to run 144hz monitor 1ms at his 100% and this is the only i reason upgrade the cpu and gpu
Should i consider buying abroad(the cpu and gpu only) ? Do you know any Eshops in europe with better prices? i dont mind waiting a little longer.
Which version of rtx 2060 i should get ? I've seen than Gainward RTX 2060 Ghost is 300€ the 30-50€ has big difference on the performance?
My pc case its Aerocool_QS-240. RTX 2060 phoenix is compatible with the CASE and the MOTHERBOARD right?

I usually play League of Legends but i want to be able to run at good graphics the new solo games like valhalla , cyberpunk or a new rpg that could arrive soon.

So about the monitor i'm thinking about this AOC 27'' FHD VA 165Hz C27G2AE/BK at 228€ (Greece Price right now). What are your thoughts ? Should i search for something better than this with some extra money?
