I have a chance to replace my g3258 with used I7 4790 for 148 USD.. and buy GTX 1660.. is it really worth it? or I have to invest money in a completely new build.. like Ryzen 3600.. etc

In my opinion 148Usd is too much for that cpu (4/8 cores/threads), i recommento to try ryzen 5 3500x from aliexpress or ryzen 3600 if u don't trust/wanna wait, and b450 ready to ryzen 3000 series. Likely MSI MAX series B450s

Edit: The cpu is good, but it's old. You can sell your rig and buy that ryzen which performance is better.
