It's by far the best option price-wise and future-proofing wise to get a 3600 with a B450 board.

The direct upgrade Intel wise would be a 9600K with an Z390 board or, if you don't need the K's overclocking capability an i5 9400 for example with a H310/H370 board would do as well.

A 3200 CL16 kit for the RAM would be fine in both sets.

Cars:
-Crashed: (not my fault ) '94 Nissan 100NX GA16DE (a.k.a. NX1600). Renault Laguna Phase I facelift '99 1.6 K4M. (Broke a strut and smacked a tree).
-Sold: '00 Nissan Primera P11-144 QG18DE, '97 Honda Prelude F20A4.
-Current: '03 Suzuki Ignis Sport 1.5 M15A & '03 Peugeot 206CC 2.0 RFN fully riced.
