My monitor is 2560x1600p (i stream at 1440p), the refresh rate is 60, and idk if I have those.
What's the brand and exact model number of your monitor?

At the very least, with a refresh rate of 60, we know that frame rates higher than 60 are meaningless for you. There's no point to having high FPS if your monitor can only display 60 frames/sec.

What is your monitor's resolution?
What is your monitor's refresh rate?
Does your monitor have FreeSync, GSync, or neither?

I have a dell U3014. Will a RTX 3070 allow me to do max settings, rtx epic, dlss performance n fortnitie with over 100 fps?

No. I seem to be finding inconsistent information, but some sources say that monitor has a maximum refresh rate of 86Hz, and others say 60Hz.

While a fast video card will be able to drive higher framerates, your monitor cannot display more frames per second than its refresh rate.

Could I get at least 60 fps with DLSS quality, RTX max, and epic settings on Fortnite with a RTX 3060 and Ryzen 5 3600 at 1440p?

My CPU is ryzen 5 3600. Currently i have a GTX 1660 but I will stream once I get a 3060. I use NVENC encoder to stream, which encodes using my GPU.

It was supposed to be a much cheaper(If everything wasn't screwed up like it is right now) 2070, not much more that that.
So expect very close to whatever you see 2070 cards benchmarking

Buy a faster video card, but why do you want to make it better? Is it not running the way you want it to? What resolution and refresh rate is your monitor? You just bought it, it's silly to swap parts out of a new computer soon as you get it.
2560x1440p and 165 refresh.

You're literally asking this in two other thread you have going simultaneously, a thread which in itself was already a spinoff of a previous thread.

Opening a new thread for every aspect of your PC upgrade is not going to be a thing. The two options to choose from are one thread or zero threads. Not two, not three, not four, not any larger number.
 
yesss i can say I have a high end pc to everyone once my 3070 comes. should I upgrade my cpu to a ryzen 7 5950 in 2 years?
Thats entirely up to you and your satisfactions.
Dont buy something because you just want to, have a good reason to upgrade.
If your 3600 isnt cutting it in 2 years then upgrade to who knows what, not because you just dont like it.
 
Having a 'high-end' pc is also a personall preference.
Personally a pc that has a lets say 4790K with 1080Ti is considered extremely high-end to me, simply because i cant afford such things, since im a minor.
For someone else that is considered absolute garbage, so people have different opinions.
