Hi all,

I currently have an Intel i5-7500 and a MSI bazooka b250m and I am noticing some bottlenecking when I do a lot of college school work. I also have a rx 480 8g which I dont seem to need to upgrade. My question is..should I upgrade my CPU with another intel or I could get a ryzen 7 2700 for $130 or a ryzen 5 2600x for $115 as well as a 2600 for $100. If I go the ryzen path I would need a new mobo as well as RAM as my ram is at 2400 I believe and I have heard that is a no-go for ryzen-is that right? I appreciate your help guys, just trying to take advantage of all the deals right now. I can probably sell my cpu mobo combo for 145ish so it would be nice to not be out much. I tend to do a lot of multitasking.

Thank you!
