what would you suggest i upgrade next since i wont be upgrading my motherboard right now? would adding more ram and a ssd be good?
A SSD will always be good, but there's not a whole lot of reason to spend money on DDR3 RAM at this point unless you're absolutely not going to do a platform upgrade and you're actually running out of RAM. But if you're not doing a platform upgrade, I'm not sure why you got a GPU that powerful; even a regular GTX 1060 is kind of on the edge of practicality for an AM3+ build.

Also thoughts on upgrading my CPU to a Intel i5 9600k or AMD ryzen 5 3600 but im not really sure whats compatible with my motherboard
Nether of those CPUs are compatible with your MB or even memory. At minimum you'd need new MB, CPU and RAM (DDR4).

Agree with others that CPU is ancient and holding back the 2060 Super to a severe degree, personally wouldn’t reccomend a GPU better than a 1050Ti/1060 3GB with that CPU. A 2600 would be a good upgrade.


A SSD would do your experience a world of good too.
