Greetings, this is my current build:
CPU: Intel pentium G4560
MOBO: Asrock-B250M-HDV
RAM: G.Skill Aegis 8gb 2400mhz
GPU: MSI geforce GTX1050 2GB Aero ITX
Storage: WDB 1TB
Case: CM Storm Enforcer
PSU: CM V550

I'm planning to upgrade the system for gaming purpose, I will get a gtx1660/gtx1660 ti,
so is it better to buy a better 7th gen processor as my mobo is still pretty new or buy an 8th gen intel processor/Ryzen processor with a new mobo???
My budget is pretty tight but I want the system to be reasonably future-proof.
Looking forward to your reply. Thank you.

Depends really.

If you can find a i7 6700 or 7700 for a good price on the used market, thats a decent upgrade but all depends on the price.

If they are expensive then you may be better off getting a B450 board and a 2600, but you would probably want to change your Ram for faster (ryzen really needs fast ram to perform well).
