Hello!
finally after long waiting and saving, i'm ready to upgrade my rig.
first of all, i'm willing to buy a new monitor(was thinking about the Asus XG35VQ, really want an ultrawide curved monitor =] )
so my system for today:

cpu: i5 4690
mobo: GA-Z87-D3HP(yeah i know it's more fit for OC and my cpu doesn't, the reason is because i had another mobo which stopped working and got replaced by warranty to this one)
ram: 16gb ddr3 1333
case: some atx antec case, i think it will fit most of mobo's for today)
ssd: 512gb sata3 crucial
psu: seasonic ss-600bt

also, someone gave me a MSI B150M BAZOOKA mobo but with i3, so if it's better to only buy a new cpu for it instead of whole new cpu+mobo, tell me =]

i was thinking about getting a rtx 2070 super, what i need to replace in my pc to not bottleneck it too much?

Thanks!

Better to go current generation CPU/Mobo. AMD Ryzen 7 3700X + decent X570 mobo is probably the best way to go. A RTX 2070 Super is a great GPU! Get a new PSU too >=600W is about right. 16GB (2x8 or 32 (2x16) DDR4 3200MHz is the sweetspot.
