[SOLVED] GPU upgrade or replace whole system

Hello,
I have a very old (2012) system, but at the time was very reliable.
I use it for 3d and 2d visual work, and most recently got into GPU rendering software (like Octane, Cycles etc.)

My graphics card is really old and can't keep up with my demands (3d scenes complexity) and render times are very long. Also with the rise of RTX, i really want to be on par with current tech (naturally also be able to play the current gen games, supporting RTX technology).

So my question is - is it worth upgrading only graphics card (with let's say something like RTX 2070), or should I replace the whole system?
I wanted to avoid spending too much.

Here are the specs:
CPU: CORE i7-3770K, 3.50GHz, 8MB, BOX, LGA1155

Motherboard: ASROCK Z77 EXTREME4 /Z77/1155

RAM: Corsair Vengeance Black Heat Spreader 4 x 8GB 1600C10

Graphics card:
PALIT GeForce® GTX 570 Sonic Platinum (1280MB GDDR5)

Power supply:
PSU SEASONIC SS-750AM BRONZE

I'd really appreciate your response and help!
Thank you!

Your i7-3770K will prevent the RTX2070 to reach its max potential in some games less in other the impact will be more at 1080p. At 1440p the things maybe be better. But this cpu for the new features like RTX is not sufficient at all. In battlefield V with RTX even the Ryzen 5 1600 was running at 100% that have 6c/12t and i had crashes in most games that support RTX until i changed to Ryzen 7 3700X.

From the list the cpu, motherboard, and rams are more than enough for rendering work and gaming at 1080p, but as u said the gpu is really outdated, getting an rtx 2060 super or gtx 1660 ti would be a great addition
