6 year old upgrade advice sought



Hello and thank you for taking the time to read this. I currently have an i5 4670k, 2x4gb of Corsair vengeance 1600mhz ram and an msi z87-g43 board. I want to upgrade the processor, which In turn means I need to upgrade the board and ram. I will be doing gaming at 60fps and am happy with the my 1070 at the moment, I will also look to chance the cooling in the future but can I please have your views and advice on the processor, board and ram compatibility with the build, thank you. 

I don’t have a specific budget but will not be able buy any of the newer processors as this would be a bit expensive for me. The previous generation items have also had great reductions at the moment.

get the ryzen 1600af or the ryzen 3600 instead. the 1600af is slightly slower than the 9600kf but is around $100 and the mobo is cheaper.  the 3600 is about the same performance is gaming, but much better in everything else and its around $150 with cheaper mobos. 


However, if you are willing to wait a little longer, AMD will be releasing new cpus soon.
