Right off the bat, I wouldn't worry about CPU deaths, at all. Unless you're running really high voltage, pretty much any other component is more prone to failure.

As for 5600X upgrade - have you found your current CPU inadequate? You'd see some benefit in gaming, but that also depends on your graphics card and refresh rate. If there's a 30fps gain, will you notice going from 90fps to 120? Also, what do you do in Photoshop which requires big performance? I haven't had performance issues there since Haswell, pretty much. Sure, there are measurable gains, but when have you ever had to sit and wait for filter to process or similar?
