Hi everyone, my current Win7 system has served me well since about 2011, but I'm looking to upgrade and could use some guidance.
My current system is listed below; if it makes sense to do so, I'd like replace the CPU, motherboard, RAM, SSD, and install Win10 while keeping the secondary storage HDD, optical drive, GPU (for now), case, PSU, and monitor. I think the GTX 760 might be a bottleneck if paired with a new CPU but given GW2's relationship with CPUs vs. GPUs, I'm okay keeping that for now and potentially replacing it later.

Apart from replacing the PSU and monitor in the past year or two (with what's listed above), I haven't really kept up with hardware specs and what's new and great these days. In doing "Guild Wars 2 hardware upgrade" searches, I see a lot of folks recommending the Ryzen 5 3600. Does that have good single-core results compared to the 2500k while still performing well with other overall functions? If so, I'd just need to figure out a motherboard and RAM to pair with it.
That's all I can think of for now, but by all means please ask more questions if needed and I'd be happy to elaborate or expand on this information. Thanks ahead of time, much appreciated.
