Help with upgrade for my PC! (CPU AMD Mobo)

Hello, im in a weird spot right now, I've an ir 7400 with a 1070 and feels like 4 cores at 3ghz are slowing down my computer and im not getting the 144 FPS desired on Overwatch for example. 

 

First of all sorry about my english xD. Anyways, I was thinking of waiting for ryzen 3000 but since im impatience to upgrade my i5 7400, I want a ryzen 7 2700x, I want to use it for mainly gaming but I want to be futureproofed as well as I said paired with a 1070, I need advices about which CPU should I get and which mother board should I get as well, ive found a 2700x for 298€/$ and can spend about 120€/$ or less on the mother board, I want to be able to overclock as well. For RAM ive 16 gb at 2133 mhz, should I sell them and pick 16 gb at 3200 mhz or more right? I wouldnt lose a lot of money, only like 10€ or like that. Thank you

no need to sell  the ram and buy new. learn how to do manual ram overclock. something along the lines of 1,4 volts and 2933mhz/3000mhz/3200mhz. depending on what is stable. if you have heatspreader on the VRM you can up to 1,45 volts if those speeds arent stable. 

 

do not buy right now. your CPU is still decent and it will be much wiser to save up and wait for Zen 2/Ryzen 3000. you dont want to be spending a lot on a new CPU right now.

I want to switch my CPU cause im getting stuttering on some games and getting 100-120 FPS, so annoying on Overwatch I play at the highest level of competitive, and my actual mobo is 50€ worth, so trash that cant even support more than 2133mhz idk if 2133mhz RAMis the problem, or if its the mother board or even the CPU, but ok I think ill wait for the new CPUS, feelsbadman people say they will show the new CPUs on June and maybe launch on september or like that, but well.. 

 

About the RAMs, didnt know they can be overclocked that much, I mean from 2133 to 3200 really? XD Actually I can sell them for 50€ each easily so I get 100€, and buy autooverclocked 3466 mhz on Amazon for 100€ too, (where I live I can buy under 150€ products without taxes, so 130€ RAM costs me 100€)

if you are buying. dont go faster than 3200mhz and try to get cl14 instead of cl16.

they can, but its on a mobo to mobo basis and stick to stick basis. but from what i know, 1,4 volts and 2933mhz should work, but i wouldnt touch timings.

Ok, yeah I think im buying actually, so whats the diference on CL14 vs CL15 16 etc? Its that big? Ill get CL14 3200mhz is that good? Any advice more? For now im upgrading only RAM and waiting for Ryzen 3000, even when the RAM will be capped at 2133mhz xD Also why not more than 3200 mhz? Sorry about that many questions

1. You're not bottlenecked by this chip in any way - you won't feel an improvement.

2. This isn't off topic

If only. But since we can't do that we'll do the next best thing: present proof. We'll just build a great PC and see how long it lasts you.

Only 1 month, you sure you can't wait just a tiny bit longer?

The thing about New Ryzen is that it won't need fast ram as badly as current Ryzen. You can probably overclock the ram up to something like 2666 to great result.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B
