The main worry I have about your system is your CPU. The Ryzen 5 2600 can easily bottleneck GPUs significantly less powerful than a RTX 3080. It has low boost clocks and low IPC compared to newer, significantly improved designs.

A Ryzen 5000 series CPU would be a significant upgrade, even the 5600 (which also has 6 cores and 12 threads like your 2600) due to the much higher boost clocks and IPC. AMD will need to release a BIOS update in order for it to be compatible with your motherboard though. Alternatively, if you don't want to deal with the limited availability and BIOs headaches of a 5000 series CPU, you could upgrade to a Ryzen 3700. That would also be a large upgrade that would go a long way to getting the most out of your RTX 3080.

Thnx for your reply,
so you're saying i can better upgrade my CPU for this moment and upgrade later to the GPU,
so the Ryzen 3700 is a Good one and future proof ?
