I want to upgrade my GPU and CPU. What would be the better option?
A: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 + GTX 1660, 6 GB = 440 $

B: Intel I5 9400f + RX 580, 4 GB =370 $

I play games like the Assassins Creed and Grand Theft Auto titles, Red Dead Redemption 2, Sekiro, Star Wars Fallen Order, Shadow of the Tomb raider (...) In 2560 x 1080p

My old PC specs are: Intel i3 7350k, GTX 1050 (2GB), 8 GB RAM dual channel @ 2133 MHz.

Thanks in advance.

Since you've left the PSU out of the picture/post, I'm assuming you're going to recycle it. If so, make and model of the PSU and it's age.

I'd pick option A, pair it with a B450 chipset board so you can upgrade further with a Ryzen 2000 or 3000 series processor. Leave GPU that you currently have as opposed to getting up on your feet in one go. I'd get a better GPU later down the road once the backbone is strengthened.

Also you asked a similar question in this thread:

Nearly a month ago. What has changed since that last thread? I see it's the same. I didn't delete/merge it due to the difference in posting.
