Time for a well needed upgrade

Budget (including currency): £300

Country: United Kingdom

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming (mainly world of warcraft some indie titles but would love to try the xbox gaming pass for windows), website building and development.

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

My 9 year old gaming PC has finally given up the ghost, it had the following specs:
Intel i7-2600K 
16GB DDR3 Ram
Nvidia GTX1060 6GB

240GB SSD

2 x 2TB HDD.

in a Corsair 750D with a 650W Gold rated PSU about 9 months old.

I have tested the graphics card in a friends machine and that runs brilliantly.

 

My real question is will this Motherboard bundle be good enough for 1080P gaming at 60fps keeping with my current Graphics card, and SSD/HDD,

The tomahawk max b450 board is one of the best out there but has odd pricing often due to the demand. Basically any msi max board should do the trick.

If so i can stretch my budget to that.

If you don't mind a Micro ATX board the B450M Mortar MAX is cheaper. Basically a Tomahawk in mATX format.

Might as well. Worst case the 3600 gets cheaper best case you can get a better cpu for the same money. Which may influence the choice of board.

I need it done by the 10th of November as I'm off annual leave then and work from home.

 

Might get the Mono, Ram and CPU ryzen 3600.
