I can still play games 1080p highest settings but sometimes I can't keep a nice 60fps and my 1% lows are terrible.
Current specs:
i5 4570
RX 470
2x8GB 1600Mhz
H81M
650W

I've now save enough money that I could upgrade to a new system.
R5 2600
1660 Super
2x8 3200Mhz
B450M
650W

Will I get better gaming experience if I upgrade now or I should keep saving for something better?

Since you only play at 1080p I would keep the 570 still a decent card for 1080p. And get the ryzen 5 3600 instead of the 2600. Your 1 % lows is bad due to the quad core . Example For me I have a Intel e3 1265l (4c/8t) but clocked only at2.4 turbo to 3.4. Had a i5 3470 for free figure I try it out so I swapped it . Now on overwatch my 1% is really bad . Also have micro stutter when everyone is on screen spamming attacks. Never had that issue with the e3.

Thanks for the input.

I'm gonna go with R5 3600, MSI B450 Tomahawk, T.Group 3200Mhz... assuming I can find a store with stock, or I'll prolly just go to used market.

After you get the upgrade you could probably sell your old set up without video card for 200-250 usd and that can go towards your 1660 super 👍
