Looking to upgrade from the rig below:

CPU: Intel i5-4690
GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 SC
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z97-HD3
RAM: 8 GB

I am not looking to do a GPU upgrade, as it was purchased within the last year. I’m noticing low frame rates and lag spikes on a number of games (AC: Odyssey, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and Kingdom Come: Deliverance are the main offenders here) and I would like to get some better processing power and RAM going, as I think these games are pretty CPU dependent, and I’ve had the i-5 for almost 5 years now.

Can I get some opinions on these proposed components?

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600X
Mobo: MSI B-450 Gaming Plus
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 3200MHz

My budget is between $400-$500. Is this my best option?
