Upgrading to i5 8600k

Hey I wanted to upgrade to a i5 8600k, I was wondering if I'll need to upgrade anything else for it to run smoothly. Specs:
-pentium g4620
-msi b250m pro-vdh
-rx 480 8gb
-chieftec GPS 600A8 600w
-8gb ram
-arctic freezer i11
If anyone could help me it'd mean a lot.

You'll need to grab a new motherboard. LGA 1151 socket and Z300 series chipset.

Personal preference but having 16GB of memory is also worth getting. Although they are expensive right now so don't have to get it.
