What country are you located, what is your budget and if this is a gaming build what is your resolution?

UK, budget i would say mid range, like this pc what i have now and it was in prime time, I guess it was mid range? Its just for battlefield 2042. Resolution 1080p low settings, would like to have 90-150 fps. I need to try game first with my current setup. Just scanning for options.

Is it necessary to buy new RAM? Old RAM is not compatible with new motherboard? This new cpu is not compatible with my current board? What are AMD cpu options?
2666mhz RAM will bottleneck that cpu hence the reason I posted that review. AMD cpu's are a bit more expensive.

https://itechs.uk/products/amd-ryzen-5-5600x-processor?variant=40699978055863 <--- You want 3600mhz RAM for Ryzen cpu's seeing how they're more memory dependent than the Intel 10/11 gen cpu's. Pair that up with a B550 board.

TBH I'd go with that build I posted and keep your current gpu until you can afford an RTX 3060.
