My current setup :
GPU: 1050 2gb
CPU: i3 6100
RAM: 2x4gb HyperX FURY 2133mhz ddr4
MOBO: GA-H110M-A
PSU: Cheap 500w psu non-branded
COOLER: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

Planning to buy :
GPU: rx590 or 1660 ? I cant decide but am pretty much looking for 1080p killer @200-230$
CPU: i5 9400F
RAM: kllsire 2x8gb 2666mhz -- An unknown brand but still a good deal on aliexpress, since i didnt find much about the ram or the brand i am kinda skeptical about this one

MOBO: GA B360M DS3H
PSU: EVGA 500 W1 (i dont know if it will be enough for the rx590)
COOLER: GONNA USE THE SAME COOLER

I do mostly gaming and alot of editing mostly image Ps Ai... on my rig, looking for strong 1080p performance in games, I play most AAA titles also into esports games (league of legos, csgo) also looking for 2 monitor setup and needed advice on the build about the parts i came up with!

This is still a bad quality PSU. I would swap this for minimum a Corsair CX for example.

MOBO: GA B360M DS3H
Just remember this needs at least BIOS F11 to run the 9400F so you may have to find a seller than can do this for you.

If the 1660 is drastically more expensive, just get the RX590. However you'll want a good quality PSU behind it.

Have you considered Ryzen? or is it off the cards?

Ty for the reply,

Yes i have consider ryzen at this price point am looking directly at the ryzen5 2600x or for a lower price/performance the ryzen5 2600 but i can add a 50$ and get a r5 3600, for 200$ if there a better alternative ..all suggestions are open.

Looking to game on a 1920x1080 @120hz monitor and 2nd for basic stuff coding/preview, ps/ai 1440x900 65hz

Also if i am switching to ryzen whats a good mobo at a reasonable price ~70$ with some spec in mind such as room for ram upgrades (dual channel) and also an m.2 slot and which brings me to another question with rx590 and a r5 3600 whats a good psu?

EDIT : I am able to get my hands on a used 1660 for a good price, will the r5 3600 and the 1660 be a good combo? and also the question for my psu still the same..
