I'm planning to upgrade my CPU and MOBO. I'm thinking about getting Asrock B450M Pro4 and AMD Ryzen 5 2600.
I'm just wondering if it's going to be compatible with my other components.

My PC specs currently.


Intel Core i5-7400 CPU @ 3.00GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
G.SKILL Aegis 16GB [2x8GB 3000MHz DDR4 CL16 1.35V DIMM] - RAM
ASUS H110M-K - MOTHERBOARD
Chieftec CTG-750c 750w - PSU


Sorry if it's a dumb question, i just want to make sure i'm not making a mistake by buying 2 wrong components.

Also, i did some benchmarking between these 2 different setups , and by upgrading to Asrock B450M Pro4 and AMD Ryzen 5 2600 , it showed as a huge improvement to my current build, is that true?
Also, this is gonna be my first time using AMD components.
Also my current MOBO is limiting my ram speed to 2400MHz , but the Asrock B450M Pro4 supports up to 3200MHz+ RAM speed, if i read correctly that is.

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-7400-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-2600/3886vs3955 this is what you are likely to see, take their stats with a big grain of salt tho, they can be a bit intel biased, but not a great upgrade for the money if im being honest, and i always try to be honest. you already have a socket 1151 motherboard that has potential for a much better CPU without changing much else there, you can potentially go for a 9600k on that gear and see much better improvements. even if you change to a 7600k on the cheap getting one second hand will give you much better increases https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-7600K-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-2600/3885vs3955

Something like this might be worth watching, the guy has good feedback, usually i dont like people using stock photos for second hand gear but that might put others off it too, which could work in your favour, but just watch a few listings see their final prices, if you can get one under $100 you are laughing.
