But should i buy a i7 870 and a gtx 1060 then? I have a optiplex 980 mt and the i7 870 is the most powerful option and its like 25 euros on aliexpress and gtx 1060 is around 80-100 euros used in my country.

Processor scaling comparisons about 3.5 years ago showed that it took at least an i5-7400 or so to saturate a GTX1060....; ergo, naturally an 11 year old CPU will hold back performance with pretty much any GPU above an GT730, likely limiting frame rates to 50% or less of those possible, and, particularly minimums FPS. (This will vary greatly depending on the game, but, if you were happy with frame rates achieved at lower res, you should at least be able to get those same frame rates now at 1080P, but at high detail/quality settings)
 
I haven't played the i7-920 and GTX 1060 combo since the GTX 1060 came out....and then I only played it like that a few months...and upgraded to an i7-980....but I recall the i7-920 and GTX 1060 doing an acceptable job at 1080p @ 60 Hz on most anything I played at the time. I think I recall hitting 60 fps on ultra on most games I played. I remember Witcher 3 didn't get to 60 on ultra....but most did.
