Question Upgrading current build

upgrading from 4th Intel i want some better performance from it because it's becoming slower over time dont know why
Ah fair enough - the parts you have selected should give you a nice jump in performance, also worth looking at the Intel 11th gen stuff (which is ~ on par with Ryzen 5000 in performance and usually a bit cheaper so might be good value). Intel 12th gen is the fastest (per core) you can get at the moment however it is pricey when you look at the whole platform.

The best choice would be the 12600K but as other posters have suggested, the platform is expensive and probably wont fit into your budget. What you have is a very nice selection with a nice board and sure to be very impressive relative to your current Haswell build. However my two cents is 8 cores will last you longer and will be of benefit if you do any multitasking or want to play games at high refresh rates. Therefore you may find that it doesn't cost you any more in the long term.

An 8 core option to consider that might fit into your budget would be the 11th gen intel.

The i7 11700K might not be too much of a stretch for you at 342 euros and gives you similar performance per core plus 2 extra cores.ÅMÅŽÕÑ&keywords=11700K&qid=1637859357&s=computers&sr=1-1

You can get the Asus ROG Strix Z590-F, a good board for 186 euros.ÅMÅŽÕÑ&keywords=Z590+mag&qid=1637859402&s=computers&sr=1-5

You can stick with the memory and SSD you have already chosen. One disclaimer though which may influence you, the 11700K does require a more powerful cooler than the 5600X.

Update - I didn't pay full attention to your prices. I couldn't see a board for 240 that was any good, are you able to tell us what model it was? If it isn't super basic then the 12600K and a board for 240 is worth it in my opinion.
