Im thinking about upgrading my cpu for gaming and light video editing.

My current specs are:
Asus H110M-k
RX 580 8GB
I3 7100
8 GB DDR4 ram (which im planning on adding another 8gb stick)
750w bronze power supply
128gb kingston ssd
1tb hard drive.


Should i upgrade to I5 7500? I don't really want to get another motherboard
 
The 7500 is only a small upgrade, its still 4 thread cpu. Really Id only bother if going 6700/6700k/7700/7700k. FYI you cannot overclock the k cpu's due to the motherboard but they are slightly higher clocked at stock.

Also worth noting that adding another 8gb does have a small risk of issues. RAM is best bought in matched kits.
