I was planning on upgrading my GPU to an RTX 3070/3080 or RX 6800/6800XT early-ish next year (budget and availability permitting). I was wondering how much my i5 6600k would be a bottleneck if I were to upgrade.
I do plan on upgrading to hopefully a Ryzen 5000 series CPU sometime later next year, but a new GPU is my priority rn, especially since I just got a new 4k monitor I want to take advantage of.

Current specs:

CPU: i5 6600k
GPU: RX 480 4gb
RAM: 32gb 3200MHz

It will depend on the game somewhat - at 4k the gpu is going to be fairly heavily loaded, however some newer games struggle with only 4 threads. Titles that are less cpu demanding should be fine so I guess it just depends on what games you want to play really.
