Upgrading old system

Apr 12, 2021
Hey guys,
I’m looking at upgrading my old system to something a bit better, on a budget. Will be mostly used for call of duty warzone

Currently have
As rock z77 extreme4
Intel i5 2500k
Radeon 7800 2gb
8gb g.skill ripjaw
Recently replaced psu with a Corsair 600 or 650w? (At work atm and can’t remember)
500gb wd blue
CM storm enforcer case

Im looking at upgrading to the following
PC Case Gear - Shared Shopping Cart
1 x Team T-Force Dark Z 16GB (2x8GB) 3000MHz CL16 DDR4 Grey - $129.00ea
1 x Intel Core i3 10105F Processor - $129.00ea
1 x Gigabyte B560M DS3H AC Motherboard - $189.00ea
1 x Crucial P1 M.2 NVMe SSD 500GB - $79.00ea
1 x PowerColor Radeon RX 550 Red Dragon Edition 4GB - $179.00ea
Total: $705.00
- @pccasegear.com 13/04/2021

My budget would be around $800 AUD, I would prefer a better gpu but there seems to be nothing available/good around the $250-$300 mark. I wanted to go the B560 AC mobo as it has built in wifi + Bluetooth but open to suggestions to cut cost

I haven’t built a computer in years so I’m not up to date with current hardware.

Is this a reasonable budget upgrade, or are their better options?

Any help is appreciated!
