    Advice on Upgrading my system

    Hello guys , I'm looking for some advice from you . I'd like to upgrade my current system , I built this PC back in 2010 /2011 , and still nowadays is a very performant PC , So I hope with the info I'm sharing here , you guys would be able to advise me which components I'd have to replace or upgrade in order to make it more performant if possible , I have thought maybe the processor would be a good idea but I don't know which one is superior to the one I have already , RAM also if someone can guide me which ones can be installed in my Mainboard , anything that can be upgraded guys I'd like to hear it .
    Also if youy can share with me sites where I can buy this components , I'm in Canada .
    Thanks in advance for your kind attention.

    May I ask, what is the primary uses of this system? I mean, what do you do with it?

    I'm asking because our advice can vary from minor upgrades to a full-on new system upgrade/build.. and you as the user, might not use your computer to play the latest games. Therefore the latter of this would mostly be a waste of money. If you get what I mean.

    How much money you plan to spend for PC?
    That's most important part.

    I can't wait new DDR5 platform to build new desktop PC.
    Off course I would like earlier but it's not real because budget.
    I think that will be my strongest PC I ever build. I plan to pay around 1500 euro maybe few euro more for CPU-Mobo-RAM.
    Plan is Intel 10 core, 32-48GB memory Dominator Platinum RGB DDR5 4400MHz+ depend of Quad Channel or Six Channel and Rampage motherboard.
    I'm very disappointed because we still pay Intel Core who can't compete with AMD Zen core and that was obvious on server market and processor with more cores where Intel can't keep high frequency to compensate older architecture.

    What Intel done, launch 28 core CPU worth 4000$ with six channel IMC to compete to AMD, Intel Xeon Server vs AMD Threadripper 2 32 Desktop.
    And to beat him ASUS helped him with half meter long VRM section capable to resist overclocking CPU and 1000W power consumption.
    Total price of platform 7000$ together with memory. I still see slower some benchmarks than Threadripper platform worth 3000$. 2990-Zenith-Extreme-RAM.
