Finaly secured a 3060ti fe after trying since december and looking to upgrade my pc quite alot. Im looking to play new ganes such as cyberpunk, hevily modded fallout and some new games such as battlefield when it comes out ect so needs to be future proof.
All games are played at 1440p at 60hz however i would like to be able to go up to 144hz if i decide to get a different monitor in the future.

I would like to keep my case and hopefuly my psu and cpu cooler

I would like to upgrade to ssd storage hopefuly 2tb if in the budget if not then 1tb with the ability to add more in the future

Budget £500 gbp (not including gpu)

Current build from 2015 uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/3Nb8TW

Thanks my dudes

Got this recommended to me

Reasoning: Intel used to be the performance king and AMD the budget king. Intel is actually still the performance king at the very top but for gaming only with the 10900K, and AMD is the performance king everywhere else. However, because of AMD's newfound popularity its older products are overpriced (the 3000 series and below). Because of this, 10th and 11th gen intel processors offer better value, particularly the i3s and i5s. However, this was more true in the US. I see that the 3600 is not particularly bad in the UK right now compared to the 11400F. I would look up videos to see how the 11400F/B560 and the 3600/B450(/B550) combos compare to each other and go with whichever comes out ahead on value. The 10400F and the 3600 traded blows, so if the 11400F is better (and it already is because the B560 board allows the RAM to clock faster), it's the way to go.

I dont recommend using windows 7 anymore, I reccomend a 750W power supply for future proofing,

Sprry forgot to change os I am on win10 now, yes I would need larger psu for "future proofing" however i dont plan to change this build for another 3-5 years and I think it should be fine with a 650w psu for these parts.
