before i start my psu gpu ans storage is the same and pulled from my old fx 8320 gamin rig so they can not be changed really but feel free to give me recommendations
cpu-ryzen 5 2600x
motherboard-gigabyte b450 aorus elite
ram-crucial ballistix sport AT ram 8x2 3200mhz
gpu- nvidia founders edition 980
alaska liquid cooler (i know i need to upgrade this to a better quality one)
psu- thermaltake 700w smart rgb psu
1 1tb hdd
1 2tb hdd
1 3tb hdd
1 128gb ssd
 
A GTX980 runs about like a GTX1060, which is still quite adequate for most 1080P gaming...

Certainly a B450/R5-2600X is quite capable of nice gaming as well...

(The 128 GB SSD is increasingly barely adequate in size for even the OS/core applications these days, I'd look for a 1 TB NVME SSD on sale when you get a chance; Intel's 660P is sometimes as low as $95 for a 1 TB unit, barring any Corona-virus price hikes, anyway)

would it be a good system to upgrade to from my ancient fx 8320 or would it produce the same proformance

It won't be the same for sure. But a ryzen 7 is always a better solution for gaming. As mdd1963 said , that your graphics card is very close to gtx 1060. It depends on the games you wanna play, dont expect the best performance on 1080p and high settings. But , it will be all fine for the next few years.
