IIRC 100/200 chipset is 6000 & 7000 compatible and 300 is 8000 & 9000 compatible so I'm pretty sure the answer would be no, she couldn't go from 7000 to 8000 without a board swap.

 

Sorry dude.

Ryzen 7 3800X | Asus ROG Strix X570-F Gaming | 16GB Team Group Dark Pro 3600Mhz | Corsair MP600 1TB PCIe Gen 4 | Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse | Corsair H115i Platinum | WD Black 1TB | WD Green 4TB | EVGA SuperNOVA G3 650W | Asus TUF GT501 | Samsung C27HG70 1440p 144hz HDR FreeSync 2 | Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS |

I second this, and highly recommend you go no less than a 7700. You need those extra threads for streaming+gaming.
