INFORMATION:
MAIN: G1 SNIPER 5
CPU: I5-4670K
HDD: 500GB
RAM: CORSAIR 16GB (2X8)-1333MHz-DDR3
POWER SUPPLY: 550W

So i am thinking about GTX 1080 maybe it will be compatible with my PC but i think the bottleneck percent will be high.
Anyone can help me find a compatible with my PC ? Maybe GTX 16 Series or GTX 10 Series ?

A few 1660 Super in that price range around available new.

Otherwise it would be trying your luck on getting an RTX 3060, even at crazy prices, probably a better option.

Also maybe pick up a i7-4790k while you are at it, as cheap as $100 and will make a difference when paired up with a faster GPU. Could also use some faster memory, but that isn't as important.

Does the RTX 3060 will work good when i try hard with AAA game and how many percent i will get a bottleneck ? And the the 1660 Super still can work well with my PC ? I think it will be a miracle 😁

You can look up the performance reviews for the RTX3060 in game titles that interest you. RTX3060 is a fine 1080p card, and even an okay 1440p card. GTX1080 is just now slipping into the okay 1440p territory in the latest games. GTX1660 Super is also a good 1080p card, not as fast as the 3060, but something that does appear to be available today. This paying almost triple its MSRP to get it.

As for a bottleneck, depends how you use it. If you set a high resolution and settings the burden will be on the GPU. If you go for maximum FPS, the burden will shift to the CPU.

A quad core without hyperthreading in today's gaming environment is not ideal. There are many games where you will be limited by your CPU and not the graphics settings. As I mentioned, an i7-4790k will drop right in and double your thread count. This will help in many games and is a relatively cheap upgrade. Anything else means replacing the motherboard and memory. (You can also just look for i7-4770, i7-4771, and regular i7-4790, which will be a little cheaper but don't offer overclocking)

Well i will play some games like: COD: MW + WZ, GTA, and maybe some more games which had great graphics because i like them at high resolution and Ultra Settings so i think i will invest on mainboard and CPU first because the GPU is going crazy right now. Do you think it's a good idea ?

DDR3 is a little old school. 4th gen is what I used to recommend for used budget gamers to build around. Though AMDs lower end parts made that a losing proposition until this recent shortage of the lower end parts.

I see the 3200G is back in stock.

Intel 10th chips are on a bit of a sale, so something like a 10600K would make a lot of sense if you can't manage to get an R5-5600X.
