Always list your specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

From the limited info you've provided, you can game on your current platform, with a better GPU although I'd be very concerned about the PSU at this point and you're going to have to sacrifice the in-game details settings as well as the resolution at which you game on.

Depends on the games and what you have open. Most modern AAA games won't be a fun experience with that CPU but you can run CSGO or League fine on low settings. Onto the bottleneck. A 570 is a bit overkill for that CPU but you should be fine.

Hey bro , you must be aware of the new gtx 1650....is it a nice GPU for my system , will this also bottleneck with my cpu??
 
1650 and 570 are basically the same in terms of performance with the 570 being a bit faster. So no it won't bottleneck, same with the 570.
Actually no the RX 570 averages 7-10 FPS more than the 1650 and it comes with 2 free games. The advantage to the 1650 is the lower power draw and RTX support which doesn't matter all that much considering how slow the card is. As far as optimization goes since the 570 has been out 2 years API's have greatly optimized to it now. I see no reason to suggest a 1650 to anyone unless that have power constants to deal with from a small PSU.

i3 2100 + RX 570 as far as gaming goes you can expect something like this.
Overwatch 1080p Medium Settings Average 75 FPS "Smooth as butter"
CS:GO 1080p High Settings Average 99 FPS "Smooth as butter"
BF1 900p Medium Settings Average 50 FPS "Juttering with random input lag"
Doom 1080p Mixed Settings Average 60 FPS "Juttering with random input lag"

I would expect that with modern AAA's you would need to run low/Mixed settings to make 1080P possible but realistically you would want to drop to 720p or 900p on most titles

I didnt reccomend the 1650 I just said that it was slightly slower than the 570. Also the 1650 and 1660 dont support rtx.

Officially yes the lowest supported card is a 1060 6GB/1660 TI but at the moment that is only because it's under implemented and non optimized. Basic RTX elements can be run on far less hardware and a 1650 is right in that target range. The 15 second water reflection sample I saw was on a 1650 but a 1050TI was also able to run it. It makes sense that Nvidia would want to push sales out on the more expensive cards first and hold driver support for anything else.
