I bought a prebuilt iBUYPOWER pc and I am planning on upgrading it within a reasonable price. I was thinking of getting the NVIDIA - GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 8GB so should I also upgrade the CPU as well? I know I would need a 650 watt so any good brand; also down the line I am planning to get the 32gb ram later on. Thanks.

My Spec:
CPU: intel Core i7-8700 @ 3.20 Hz
GPU: GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
RAM: 16 gb
PSU: 500
Motherboard: ASUS Prime H310-PLUS motherboard

My PSU is a Thermaltake 500w ATX12V and my budget plan is max $600 for the GPU, $100 for the PSU. Also what is a good mobo that is compatible with my existing parts.
Consider this
Asus B365 tuf gaming plus-$110
