I have the following on my PC. I do very rare video editing and game on this PC.
ASRock Z390 Pro4 LGA 1151 (300 Series)
Intel Core i9-9900K
T-Force Vulcan Z DDR4 32GB Kit (2x16GB) 3200MHz (PC4-25600) CL16
2 monitor (27, 24)

I recently bought a new case and much better PSU and and thinking of upgrading but will it be worth it? I feel like my mobo is dated and with the new case and PSU(SSonic 750 focus) and am wanting to use the new case(had same one for last 15 years)

MSI PRO Z690-A DDR4 LGA 1700

From what I've googled, that would be a decent upgrade?
I can't imagine any game is really being held back by your 9900k, so upgrading would be a waste of cash. Don't go chasing benchmarks.
Do you have a high resolution on your monitors or a high refresh rate? You might see like 10 to 15% fps on some games at like 1080p and if you are trying to hit like 144fps or something it could help. But if you did go 12th gen why stick to ddr4 instead of ddr5 ... and even then prob a huge $ for little gain.
