Can i couple an i5 9600k with a 1060 6 gb or its just an overkill?I dont care about high-ultra graphics,just want to get about 90+ fps @ 1080p.

I'd get a different GPU. That one is 3 years old now. I'm on an AMD kick and would recommend the Ryzen 5 3600 over a Core i5. This would allow a faster GPU in your budget and give you better performance.
I was thinking of buying a ryzen 3600 too,but as a new processor it still has a lot of bugs and issues so i dont know..Also i already own a gtx 1060 so thats the problem.Maybe i will upgrade in 5-6 months..Do you have any problems with your 3700x?

The second day I had it installed, the first day after playing some games, I was video editing and opening videos in Windows. It Blue Screened about 3-4 times that day. But I quit using the default Windows video player in Win 10 and switched to Windows Media Player and I haven't' had any issues since.

If you already have the GTX 1060 then don't worry about it. What is your current CPU?
 
The 9600K with it's 6 cores and but 6 threads is increasingly plagued with many users complaining of hitches/stutters as minimum FPS falls a tad low. Despite having a higher average FPS than an R5-1600/2600, sometimes having a better minimum fps (.1% lows) is more noticeable....

I'd be looking hard at R5-3600 or R7-3700/3700X. (If you'd like to plan on sticking with a system for 4 years or so, I'd consider an X570 board, as eventually, PCI-e 4.0 GPUs will be forthcoming, but, there is certainly a good case to be made for instead putting the extra $100 saved with an X470 toward a better GPU now)

My current CPU is an i5 4590 but hes already old so i wanna build a new pc.I will just keep my gpu for now and i have already bought pc case,power supply and RAM.I just need to decide which cpu/mobo i have to buy.

Yea but im a bit afraid of the ryzen 3000.Ive heard about many issues,not only with b450/x470 but also with the x570 mobos.The processor is new so there would be many issues/bugs that need to be fixed.So i dont know..I really cant decide...I already have the rest of parts and i need just a CPU/MOBO.In a few months i will go for a new GPU but now i have to decide for CPU ://
