    Hello @JoshGougeon,
    If you prefer Intel, I would say start investing in making the switch. You will need to find a compatible motherboard, but choose that after you have picked your CPU. How much of a budget you have will for sure effect what you do and do not upgrade. The GPU is something you will want to upgrade for newer titles, I recommend a 1660 or equivalent at a minimum. Your RAM depending on the speed should actually be fine for awhile, 16GB is not bad. For a water cooling system I would recommend Corsair or NZXT.
