Currently I am using an ASUS ROG STRIX Rx 580 8GB (Triple Fan)
Ryzen 5 3600x OC/ed to 4.25ghz.
Mobo- b450 Tomahawk Max.
32 Gigs of ram @ 3200mhz
Corsair Cx650M PSU
Monitor- Sceptre 1920x1080, 144mhz
If you need more detailed summary please check my signature.

I am not overly impressed with what the Rx 580 has been doing in terms of graphical output. Maybe i'm over shooting for this card and don't understand its capabilities Perhaps i need to cap myself at 60FPS at 1080p. I was looking at benchmarks and comparing some cards. the 1660 Super. 2060 Super and the Rx 5700 Xt. I understand that the jump between the 580 and the 1660S isnt great but from what i can see and have read the 1660 Super would be a better card and be the same price anyway. My question is should i change to the 1660? move up to either 2060(S) or 5700 Xt? I am also aware that the 2060 (S) and the 5700 XT would mean i should upgrade my monitor to take advantage of its 1440P capabilities. I am fine with 1080P i just would like to have better visuals. Any and all opinions are welcome. Thank you .

RX580 is a relatively inexpensive card. It is good for 1080p 60fps, but not a ton more.

A 1660 super should get you around 25% more performance, but a 2060 super or RX5700xt would be a lot more.

You don't need to upgrade your monitor, as 1440p 144hz is not easy to run in many demanding games even with a card of that tier.

If i can get more performance and better lighting and overall appearance from a 1660 Super then I would like to do so. The 2060S and the 5700 XT I will wait until the prices start to lower. 25% is still a better jump than what i have currently. I feel the Rx 580 is just lacking considering the size of the card. Thank you for your reply
 
Well its an older card. So it will not be as efficient for the performance as a newer one thus it needs a bigger heatsync.

The Radeon RX5600xt and RX5700 (non xt) would be cheaper and both better than a 1660 super and regular 2060

I live in canada so neither of those two are going to be cheaper than the 1660 Super. just checked. they're about $100+

Oh woops. I meant the RX5600xt and RX5700 perform better than the 1660 super but are cheaper than the 2060 and 2060s respectively
The way i am looking at it right now is price point. The Rx 580 i have and what i paid for would be on par with the 1660S but i can get an increase in GPu output for the same price i would rather go for the better option.
