My current setup is a GTX1050 FX4300 CX450 GA78LMT R2 Mobo. In the next years i will be saving up a lot of money for new pc parts. First (somewhere around August-December) should i get a Ryzen 3 or Ryzen 5. I have a budget of around 800£ to spend on parts. If something i will get a B450 Motherboard and 8GB of DDR4 Ram 3000mhz. This is whats important. I found a GTX1070 for 300£ and a RTX2070 for 450£. Which one should i get and if something recommend another gpu which could be good. So in the future my specs i want to have will probably be:

GTX1070/RTX
Ryzen3/5
600W PSU
8GB DDR4 Ram
B450 Motherboard

If you're going for a GTX 1070 or RTX 2070, you will need the Ryzen 5 for sure if you don't want to heavily bottleneck the GPU. Preferably the Ryzen 5 2600/2600X. And with an 8GB gfx card, you may want to double the system memory of 8GB pretty soon if you game, which I assume you do.

My GTX 1070 is about the max for my Ryzen 5 1600X w/o any bottleneck creeping into the picture. I suspect when I upgrade to a RTX 2070, I'll be seeing considerable bottleneck.

I decided to go with an rtx2060 as it is much more better value so it should be similar to a gtx1070ti. And i wont be going over 75 fps but still want nice graphics. Should draw less power from the cpu?

Yes, the 2060 should be noticeably less wattage. Depending on which one you get. But if you end up with a Ryzen 5 2600/2600X, the GTX 1070 is still a viable option for you. If you feel you want to take advantage of ray tracing graphics in games that have that feature, the 2070 is about the minimum you'd want.
