    First, welcome to the forum.

    The answer is not quite that simple. A lot depends on your budget and what type of photography you plan to do. The D500 is a great camera.

    What camera are you shooting now? With the D500 you will have to buy high end lenses. Your basic kit lenses will not be a good choice for this camera.

    The camera itself is more-than-capable.

    Welcome aboard. Enjoy the ride.

    The D500 is a fine camera. But with it you will also have to invest in a flash unit and pack that and the batteries every where you go. If you plan to do a lot of sports/action photography, it is hard to beat. However, if you plan to do a lot of landscape, street or portrait photography, for less than half the money, you might want to consider a D7200. Your other options for the same money as the D500, or a little more is a full-frame FX camera.
