I'm looking to update some of my PC parts and I'm not super tech savy. I was hoping to find some insight to those who possibly know more than me.
I currently have an Intel i5-6500 Skylake 4-core 3.2 GHz LGA 1151 65W and an ASUS prime z270-A LGA 1151

A friend of mine recommended I upgrade to the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-core and the MSO B450 Tomahawk MAX ATX AM4.

Is this a pretty decent upgrade?
Both of the parts recommended to me I can get for around 400 which is a bit lower than the price range I was originally thinking. around 500-600.

I've been told AMD are usually a pretty shitty brand by people who strictly use Intel. So I don't know if that's biased or not.
