So my current build looks like this:

motherboard asus z97 pro
processor i7 4770k
RAM ddr3 corsair vengence 16gb ram
air cooler noctua nh-d14
samsung SSD 840evo 500gb
Samsung F3 1TB Hard Drive
Phantek Enthoo Pro Glass Midi Tower Case
Corsair TX650 Power Supply
msi GeForce GTX 970

The components I was looking to upgrade to:
Motherboard: Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite
AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor
Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO Black 32GB 3600MHz AMD Ryzen Tuned DDR4

Due to the scarcity (and my budget!) I'll look to upgrade the GPU once the situation improves..

Use it for usual gaming, BF, TF2 etc. Would like to know if there are problems, incompatibility better options, what do you folk think? Budget is max £600 (ideally wanted under £500 but I think I can get this lot for about £550ish)

You could save 50 quid on the motherboard, With X570 your paying for features you most likely won't use on a gaming system.

Cheaper ram with slightly better timings.

My basket at Overclockers UK:
Total: £489.47 (includes shipping: £10.50)​
