I am on a low budget and i am thinking about upgradeing my graphics card. I have been using the MS GTX 1070 X 8GB for almost 5 years now and i am thinking about getting a 3050 (if i can get my hands on it). Is that a good upgrade in performance or should i save up for a higher-end GPU?

Na not worth it. For someone who doesn't have a graphics card and considering how prices are currently, a 3050 is both poor and great choice at the same time. Luckily for you, 1070 is pretty much on par. 3050 would give you Hdmi 2.1 though but that about it besides ray tracing if you care about that at all.
