Depends on what you are doing, but yes. Six cores no hyperthreading is going to be a problem in some recent multiplayer titles and AAA games. Still playable though. And you can always take that opportunity to crank the resolution and details up.

Your issue is the processor, not the GPU, if you go for anything higher, based off of what you've said and received suggestions for on these threads;

You might want to also state the budget you have allocated for your GPU purchase, your location and your preferred site for purchase, in order to get worthwhile suggestions.

As far as your system specs are concerned, you need to list them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:
Monitor:

The CPU is the problem, not the GPU. You would see 0 benefit from a new GPU. Easy upgrade, find a used 9900k. The most sensible option is to make the jump to 12th gen.

DO NOT GET A 3080 OR 3090 FOR 1080P!!!
Why not? It is fine for high refresh gaming, and will last them a long time. Get the best GPU you can afford, and your PSU can handle, without going super low on the CPU. Just look at the 1080p results, from techspot's 6700xt review. There are some titles that even a 3090 cannot do 144fps, on 1080p ultra, and that number is only going to increase, in the coming years.

Because if you're trying to maximize the amount of performance for what you have to pay, the 3090 is a terrible buy for 1080p gaming. Assuming MSRP pricing, you can spend three-quarters less on a RTX 3070, but lose about 20% on average performance according to the TechSpot review. And this isn't including secondary costs to support the 3090 like say a higher wattage PSU.

So unless performance requirements suddenly skyrocket in the coming years, you'll save more in the long run going with something cheaper.

EDIT: Math is hard. :tearsofjoy:
