Hey, sorry if this has been asked a lot, but I really love to hear people's different opinions and get some tips. Every time I save some money I want to invest it in my PC because it's exciting to me and makes me happy. My current specs:

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600 @4Ghz
MOBO: B450-a pro
RAM: 2x8GB 3200 Mhz DDR4 (cl16 I think)
GPU: Gainward GeForce GTX 1660Ti Ghost
Display: AOC 24v2q- 23.8” IPS, Full HD res, 75hz, Freesync
Storage: 1. SSD 240GB, 2. SSD 120GB, 3. HDD 1TB

I was thinking on waiting for the next GPU that will be somewhere around RX 5700 for less money maybe?, or maybe wait for Ryzen 4000 series and upgrade CPU first, but I think GPU would be better, I currently have budget around 400$ and I am saving up more. Also I was thinking about getting RX 5600 XT + 144 hz freesync display, I heard a lot of positive things about it. I love smoothness in games and it was so good when I replaced my 60 hz with 75 hz display. I usually play World of Warcraft, sometimes Apex or Warzone.

Hello,
I wouldn't recommend the switch from a GTX1660ti to an RX5600XT, it simply isn't large enough. I would recommend buying an RX5700XT or the RTX2070(s) because they are a lot more higher end and worth it. Your PC is fine and if you want to play at 144hz then you would be fine with the 5700XT however the 1660ti can easily run a lot of games at 144fps. Warzone I don't know how much fps you get but by lowering settings in intensive games you can get 144fps. So I would probably recommend getting the monitor now and saving some more for higher end parts.
