I am planning to upgrade my system to a new gtx 2060 gaming rig

My current rig..
Amd phenom ii x4 955
Gtx 560 ti
8 gigs of corsair ram 1600mhz DDR3
Cooler Master 650W psu
LG 23 inch monitor

Is their any component which i can use in my new rig, or i have to upgrade the whole cpu system?

I think you mean RTX2060. It will run fine on a 650w psu.
Yes, Coolermaster is not considered high quality, you could reuse it
What is your case?
Newer high end parts will want decent cooling.

No doubt. you are looking at latest gen intel or ryzen along with motherboard and DDR4 ram.

CASE: cooler master cm 690 II advanced
 
Your case was a good one in it's time.
But, with only a single 140mm front intake fan, it will be a bit limiting if you start to use high end graphics cards and processors.
Still, it is ok for a RTX2060 and your current cpu.

Your cpu is likely a limiting factor and will continue to be so.
Try this test:
Run YOUR games, but lower your resolution and eye candy.
If your FPS increases, it indicates that your cpu is strong enough to drive a better graphics configuration.
If your FPS stays the same, you are likely more cpu limited.
