Hi , can someone tell me if my motherboard is compatible for a ASUS GeForce RTX 2060 STRIX GAMING O6G 6GB GDDR6 192-bit? My current specifications are :

CPU : AMD Ryzen 3 1200 Quad-Core processor 3.10GHz (I will change it with a AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 3.7GHz
GPU : Nvidia GeForce GTX 770
Motherboard : Gigabyte A320M-DS2-CF
RAM : 8GB DDR4
Monitor : Asus VS248
Please tell me if its compatible or with what motherboard its compatible at a medium-range budget!

P.S. - There isn't any problem with the compatibility of my current motherboard and the RTX 2060 STRIX GAMING , is it? If it is I will change it with a B470
There should be no problem with the current board, nop.
B450/X470 are the both boards :p
No need for buying new board except if you want to upgrade in future.
But you can go for the 1700x now and get you a x570 board or something later.

Sirtec High Power Eco II HPE-500-A12S II 500W

P.S. - The new processor that I said I'm gonna buy is compatible too?

Can you tell me specifically what do I need to change exactly in order for it to work at full potential?
Didnt saw that you'll change it with the 2700x.
Get a good 470 Mobo, for around 150 euros. you could upgrade it in future with the new ryzens if you want.
i personally would recommend you to wait a little bit more for the new ryzens.
you can also get that 470 board, and use your 1200 until the new ryzens will be released.
AMD said the 470 boards will be supported until/in 2020.

But this processor that I have now can support the new video card? I mean , wouldn't be too less power to keep up with the video card?

The cpu should be a little bottleneck, but it should be work fine, better than the 770.
But when you say you can't wait for new Ryzen Gen 3, and you want the 2700x soon, i would suggest you a 470 Board.
As already said its fine, should be more worth than the 770 of course :)

Does a Gigabyte B450M DS3H Micro ATX AM4 works too as a replacement for your suggestion of 470 boards?
the gigabyte 450 Mobo should work too, but still prefering to 470 because of the better VRM section, not the cheapest chipsets.
It should also allow you future updates.
Better giving few bucks more instead of regretting the buy you did for saving 20 bucks.
In my opinion, not the cheapest one, yes, i know. but i kinda go for quality instead of buying 2 times.

Edit:

If you still want a cheap board, check the Asus prime b450m-k, pretty solid one for a mATX board.

Thank you! I could use the ASUS Prime B450M-K only for a temporary replacement until I get enough money to afford the 470
you're welcome.
buying 2 times isn't worth, it's just burning money.
Just put that money on side and when you can afford a 470 board just buy it. no need for buy 2 mobo's actually :p

By the way , should I try to get AMD Ryzen 1700X instead of the 2700X? I mean , do I still need to change the motherboard with a B470? It won't be a bottleneck between the RTX 2060 and the 1700X?

You can go for the 1700x with a X470 Board or B450 Board of course.
The cpu is strong enough, there shouldn't be any bottleneck then.
You can also use your Gigabyte A320M-DS2-CF with the 1700x.

2700x is quite better than 1700x, beside 300MHz higher frequency it's also better with fast RAM, comes with excellent cooler and with 400 series chipset MBs much better with fast memory. Such a combination will last much longer than with mediocre motherboard.
