Sell your existing CPU + MOBO + RAM for around $150. And purchase something like this instead. Trust me, it would be a way better upgrade instead of upgrading to a 4790.
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 (14nm) 3.2 GHz 6-Core Processor ($85.00) The Ryzen 5 1600 AF is available on amazon.com for $85. It is basically a Ryzen 5 2600 with first gen IMC. It is based on 12nm.
Motherboard: MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($79.98 @ Amazon)
Memory: Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($64.98 @ Amazon)

Its still doing fine, but its time to upgrade because i've been keeping this processor since day 1.
Right?But its not that easy to sell stuff on my country. its massive downhill, im now at the edge between spending more for modern hardware, or spending less for an okay hardware. Besides, the majority of my pc was just playing some games. But for video editing its not always
Hang onto your shit, then! Watch the market, and if you see a big hike in prices, sell.
But save up. I would personally see what Zen2 prices are looking like once Zen 3 gets closer. It's gonna be a good drop.
(The $200 msrp 2600 went down to a standard $165 where it sat for a long time, then dropped to $110-120 once Zen 2 hit. Great savings. I'd expect something similar!)
