Since only running Windows 11 is your main priority, you should probably get an AMD Ryzen 7 5700G, buy a decent not too fancy motherboard for it, use the usable items of your current setup and upgrade things that you feel like upgrading.
5700G will make your current GPU obsolete, so maybe try to sell that if possible. This should save you a lot of money, I think. 5700G is a very capable APU btw.
I checked, we dont have 5700G.

Your Z170 supports up to 7th gen Intel. So you could just upgrade to a 7700k or another 7th gen CPU one which has hyper-threading and
stick with windows 10. This option will be far less costly even though windows 11 does not officially support 7th gen intel

Windows 11 is nothing more than a gimmick and IMHO just hot garbage. I would rather have a car than a PC that can run windows 11

I will change my recommendation to just updating your CPU only to a 7th Gen intel with hyper-threading and stick to windows 10.

I personally will be using window 10 till around 2025 even though my system can support 11.
My motherboard ASUS Z170-A supports TPM chip, but I must buy it. And there is no guarantee, if I get it safe and ok, because Amazon doesn't ship here directly.

With this configuration you can use windows 11 and it is the cheapest there is. By the way what is your country and your budget? In what store do you usually buy?
