PC upgrade, some assistance needed

Budget (including currency): 550€ ( ~650$ ) 

Country: Slovakia

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming machine mainly.



I'm badly in need of an upgrade because only after buying a new GPU ( GTX 1660 Super ) I realized just having good graphic card is not enough and according to CPU bottleneck website, mine is almost 70% and I can really feel those fps dips and stutters in all games now.  I would love if you guys could help with my upcoming build and review the parts I chose to upgrade and possibly improve it.


My current setup:

Motherboard: H61M-P23 (B3) 

CPU: Intel i5 - 2500

RAM: HyperX 8 GB DDR3 1600 MHz CL10 Fury Blue Series

GPU: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER OC 6G ( Already bought this one, upgraded from SAPPHIRE R9 280X DUAL-X OC )

CPU Cooler: Freezer 7 Pro ( It fits on 1155 socket and from what I read it should fit on 1200 too + it still works very well, my idle cpu temperature is around 32°C and never exceeded 70°C under heavy load )

SSD: ADATA Ultimate SU650 SSD 240 GB

HDDWestern Digital 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache

HDD 2Western Digital 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache

PSU: Corsair VS650, 650W 80+

PC Case: No idea what brand is my current one ( It's quite old ) and I'm trying to upgrade it as well.


Parts I chose to upgrade:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE Z490 UD - 145€ ( 170$ )

CPU: Intel Core i5-10600KF - 255€ ( ~300$ ) KF is almost 40€ cheaper where I live and from what I read they should be the same, so no point in integrated graphic.

RAM: HyperX 16GB KIT DDR4 3200MHz CL16 FURY - 72€ ( ~85$ ) 

PC Case: MSI MAG VAMPIRIC 010M - 55€ ( ~65$ ) 


Total: 527€ ( ~624$ )

I know, but i don't live in the U.S so there might be a problem with availability and import fees making it a lot pricey 😕

I would consider a different case with better airflow, look for something with a mesh front.
