    I'm desperately in need of new CPU.
    Atm this is my setup:

    CPU: AD785KXBJABOX

    Case: Mini ITX
    https://www.newegg.com/global/fi/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811345033

    Motherboard: GA-F2A88XN-WIFI
    https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-F2A88XN-WIFI-rev-30#ov

    Harddrives: SHFS37A/120G and WD10EZRX

    Power Supply: CP-9020076-EU

    Cooler: 0P105245

    GPU: EX-GTX1050TI-O4G
    https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards/EX-GTX1050TI-O4G/

    Cache Memory: HX318C10FBK2/16


    I looked up new CPU:s that go for my motherboard but selection is very little.
    Should I upgrade my motherboard, if, to what?
    And if I upgrade my motherboard, shoul I change my case too, since it's mini?

    I want my PC to run PUBG in HD, and to be able to render videos in HD at my moviemaker smoothly.

    Thanks in advance!
    If there are any good black friday offers, that would be appreciated.

    Your system is getting a little long in tooth so it might be a good time to consider upgrading your motherboard and CPU. Depending on what you choose you might also have to upgrade some of the other components such as RAM. Your case, power supply, graphics card, hard disks, and any optical drives you have should be okay to repurpose. For gaming Intel processors are better single core performers than AMD, but AMD processors often give more bang for the buck if you're looking to work with multi-threaded software such as graphics software. For instance, I play some games, but not enough to build a dedicated system around them, and I also work with graphics and video. So I chose to go with an AMD Ryzen 1700 because it's good for playing all the games I play, and it does an excellent job for working with multi-threaded graphics applications.
