Hello everyone!

Soooo Ive had this build for 2 years or so:

-AMD R5 1600 overclocked to 4ghz
-Cooler Master Hyper Evo 212
-EVGA Gtx 1060 OC 6GB (overclocked)
-Corsair vengeance 16gb @3200
-MSI x370 gaming plus
-Corsair CXM 550W bronze 80+

I'm using a Samsung monitor 1080p at 144hz.

Im looking for advices to upgrade this build in a few months because I can barely reach 60fps on most games on high settings.

I play games like red dead redemption 2, battlefield V, shadow of the tomb raider, FF15, the witcher 3...etc

What gpu do I need to play games on 1080p @144??? Would a rtx 2070 super or a rx 5700 xt work?
And also could I keep my cpu or do I need to invest in a new cpu/motherboard? And possibly a new psu as well? (I'm also looking to get something future proof)

Any help is appreciated!!! Thanks in advance!

Well first of all, what is your budget?
If you can afford this, I would go with this upgrade:
r5 3600/2600
rtx 2060
some 700w+ psu

I suppose I don't have a budget per say so whatever the cost is fine... Wouldn't a 2070 work better at 1080p 144? Or even a rx 5700 xt... Which is better and cheaper than a 2060 And be more future proof (I'm mostly playing newer games)

Will my x370 gaming plus MB be compatible with the r5 3600?
