Build-
CPU - i5 6600k
GPU - GTX 1060 6GB
RAM - 16 GB (3600Mhz)

I'm just curious if my upgrade should be my CPU or GPU next? Im currently dropping frames and having to turn down settings on games like Modern warefare.

Any help is appreciated, including what i would be the best upgrade, should i jump straight to the RTX 20 series or stick with something like the 1080.

Thank you:)

This is something you have to do yourself.
Play all of your games - at least, the most trending ones - and monitor:
-cpu and gpu temps
-cpu usage - EACH CORE/THREAD. Whole cpu usage is incorrect.
-ram usage
-gpu usage
Excluding the temperature part, the one that comes up as the weakest link the most frequently is the one you change first.
Do not attempt to base an upgrade off of a single game.
