So i built a gaming desktop back in 2015 with a AMD FX-6300 CPU and a GTX 750 TI and it was amazing and let me play all my games i like at no issues ever. But its been dying lately sadly, now that i saw how long AMD chips can last, i want to know what AMD chip should i pick next that id see a significant upgrade from and also last 5 more years lol

Depending on location/budget the Ryzen 2600, 2700x, and 3600 are all very good options. Throw one on a B450 Tomahawk Max or X570 Asus Prime-P or Tuf and you are set.

If you are just gaming, the 3600 is excellent value. It comes pretty close to the higher Ryzen SKUs in terms of gaming and the AM4 platform will likely have another round of CPUs released for it. The 2700x is also pretty solid in its own right, especially if you do any workloads that are properly multithreaded.

Do you need other peripherals like a new monitor?

Just an idea to get you started; there is definitely some flexibility in the budget to suit your preferences on monitor options/RGB/etc.

with the DDR3 based dead end AM3+ socket, and such an old GPU, its probably time to do a full upgrade :)

we had super similar systems. i had a fx 4300 prebuilt machine back in 2013, upgraded it to a 8350 with a 1060 back in 2015 after the PSU died and killed the mobo. finally did a fresh build this year :)

the "new version" of the fx 6300 is the 3600. multithreading and great gaming performance. your budget can easily land you a 2080 super, that'll certainly last for a while. i included a 1440p monitor which will be huge coming from what im assuming is a 1080p 60hz monitor edit: disregard the windows key and the SSD if you have a transferrable key & a fast drive already :)

Yeah why not move it to the new PC too as a second drive? Sure SSDs do have a write endurance but the average home user will only come close to it after like 10 to 15 years of use. Though I can guarantee you that going from a fx 6300 to a 3600 is going to be a night and day difference in power. I am sure you will enjoy the change.
