I know there are some smart PC guys here.


I'm looking to upgrade my PC build.

My current build is: I7 6700k MSI 11GB D5X GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X 11G Corsair AX860i 860W ATX23 SSD 512GB 850Pro Basic 32GB 2400-15 Ripjaws 4 Red K4 GSK Seag 2TB ST2000DX001 SSHD HXLU26 Noctua NH-D15 Corsair Obsidian 750D Airflow bk ATX

I'm thinking about upgrading my processor, mobo and ram.
Processor: i9700k
Mobo: ASRock Z390 Taichi Ultimate
Ram: No idea, I have a budget of about €300-€400

Is this a good upgrade? Do I need to upgrade other things? Any advice on a good MOBO and RAM memory?

This is good update because you will get CPU with twice number of cores than now. I7 6700K is 4 Core CPU while I7 9700K is 8 Core CPU.

Here is link to GSkill memory configurator, pick any compatible memory kit that has speed above 3000 Mhz ... model=3503
