No.



You will need a new Mobo and RAM for any thing modern such as a 8th/9th gen Intel or a Ryzen. Personally I would go Ryzen as they are far better for the price and performance is extremely close to intel.
I see! Which one though in particular that'd be a great fit for my GPU? And what motherboard even? How much Ram do i need to upgrade?
 
Depends on yoru budget and use. If this is just for gaming get a Ryzen 3600, if you also do streaming get the 3700X or 3900X. Again depends on your budget.

You dont have to buy a X570 mobo if you dont want, a B450 will save you a decent chuck of change but be sure to get one of the mobos that can have their BIOS updated without a CPU because even now Ive seen people post about getting motherboards that haven't had their BIOS updated from the factory. The only othe thing about Ryzen is you should get 3200mhz or faster RAM and in a dual channel kit.

Thank you :) I have no interest in streaming whatsoever..so i take it i should go with AMD ryzen 3600 then? I fit's better than my current CPU, they're not very different in price but after all, I do need to save money,.. and a mother board added into the budget, will be like another 100-150 euros on top of that.

you don't need ryzen 5 3600
r5 2600 is enough
This is the cheapest ryzen combo that won't bottleneck 2070 you can possibly get :
