Current build, which is 5 years old:

Motherboard: ASUS|Z97-A Z97 LGA 1150 ATX R
CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 CPU @ 3.30GHz
PSU: XFX TS Series 550W Power Supply
CASE: ANTEC VSK-4000 RTL
RAM: 4GBx2|G.SKILL 8136 MB RAM
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960

What I'm looking to upgrade / replace with ( if I don't replace motherboard and case and such ) :


Intel Core i5-9600K ( https://www.amazon.com/Intel-i5-9600K-Desktop-Processor-Unlocked/dp/B07HHLX1R8 ) ( This particular processor is on sale now at a good price so that's why )

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 ( https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-GeForce-Graphics-Windforce-Gv-N1660OC-6GD/dp/B07P76G428 )

Seasonic 650W ( https://www.amazon.com/Seasonic-GX-650-Full-Modular-Application-SSR-650FX/dp/B077J9QTDR )

WD 2TB HD ( https://www.amazon.com/Black-Performance-Desktop-Hard-Drive/dp/B00FJRS628 )

Antec Case ( https://www.amazon.com/Antec-Affordable-Builder-Friendly-Mid-Tower-Ports/dp/B00IVZW2TS )

Bottleneck calculator says the cpu and processor would work great https://pc-builds.com/calculator/Core_i5-9600K/GeForce_GTX_1660_Ti/0RP13flu


OPTIONAL:

On Amazon the CPU listed above comes with this motherboard (
https://www.amazon.com/MSI-PRO-LGA1151-Gigabit-Motherboard/dp/B07J6Z9KJ2 )

And if I did purchase that motherboard with the bundle, maybe using this RAM (
https://www.amazon.com/G-Skill-PC4-24000-3000MHz-Platform-F4-3000C16D-16GISB/dp/B01IW7Z66U )

My questions:

Any issues with ANY of these parts individually or working together? And should I swap out the motherboard and RAM or leave them as is?

( Also, if I upgrade these parts but keep the same motherboard and case, is it still the same computer? )

Hey, can somebody delete this thread please? I don't know if I can do it or how to do it. I still have more research I need to do before I get back to you all. Thanks.

That's about right the Z390 mobo listed in your bundle though somewhat basic is very reliable, and with Intel there is no use in using anything above DDR4 3000-3200 you do not get the same jump in performance from memory speeds with Intel as you do with AMD.
