hello again peops !

so im finally upgrading my pc a little more

i havnt upgraded my graphics card ever since i got it gifted 2014 which is the 970

i currently have a ryzen 5 2600 (got it last year december) x470 gaming pro carbon MB with 16gb ram (also last year december)
my current games range from assasins creed odyssey where i get like 30 to 40 fps (soon valhalla which i want to have good performance on ) to witcher 3 and so on meaning i enjoy triple A games
my question now is what would be the better upgrade for me ? i could get the 2060 which was also recommended to me

or should i upgrade my cpu and would achieve much more through that ? like lets say going to the ryzen 7 3700x

thanks in adcance for reading! hope i can get some advice <3

the ram that i bought were 3200Mhz if i remember i looked up what would be best for my MB and the ryzen 5 2600 and got them of amazon i think but omg yes thank you so much i will definitely do that !
Even without XMP, it should run at 2k+ mhz. Try all XMP profiles (if there are multiple profiles).
My RAM runs at 2133mhz without XMP. It's arvertised as 2400mhz but my Mobo won't support it.

Btw, what's it say about RAM speed in CPU-Z?

i pretty much just upgraded my cpu and mb plus ram haha thinking it would last me
It will last you for at least a couple of years more. Don't worry. It's just that I like the Ryzen 5 3600. You can dump the idea of a CPU upgrade for now. That CPU is quite capable. Getting a better GPU should be the first priority

A 2060 Super will get you around 60 FPS on 1080P Ultra(AC Odyssey)

Nope, no need to upgrade ur cpu, it will be fine... My advice to you would be that as u have waited so long , wait for another 2 months or so, as the nvidia 3000 series cards are coming and new amd cards are coming too...
Now if u r not gonna wait, then 2060 or 2060 super is a good choice... If u require ray tracing, then go for 2000 series card... or else u can also check amd rx 5700 xt...

ima check that card out and yea i was gonna go for the 2060 or the super one
if when the new cards hit the prices of other ones would drop then i would gladly wait

It should, but amd generally reduces their prices first for their previous gen products, then nvidia follow suit... But i cannot confirm whether the prices would drop or not at the launch of new gen graphic cards, but they should soon after...

A good casing/cooling solution would be a good upgrade. So would be an SSD. Assassin's Creed Odyssey takes a hell lotta time in loading screen -_- . I wouldn't worry about that now though. I'd get the GPU, play games to my heart's content for a few weeks and then worry about what to upgrade. Don't sweat it now.

And if your PSU is old(as is your casing), you might want to get new one. Wouldn't want it to fail after getting new GPU.

What's the make and model of the PSU?

I've been there with crappy airflow cases, coming from a prebuilt. The GPU was struggling in it. Getting something like a RX 5700 XT, which is a power hog, would heat up the case more.

My advice would be to wait. When the new GPUs release, there is going to be a lot of GPUs on the market from people upgrading, and the prices will fall.

Try investing in a new case (WITH A MESH FRONT, I CAN'T STRESS THIS ENOUGH) and an SSD whenever possible. The SSD will boost your system greatly.

Just out of curiosity, how many sticks of RAM do you have, how are they placed on the motherboard and what's your RAM speed? You can check RAM speed in task manager.
