You will notice it, only in the form of how much FPS you get, when the GPU is the bottleneck. You can try playing with lowered graphics settings, in whatever game you are playing, if the FPS isn't good enough, for an enjoyable experience. You are never going to eliminate bottlenecks, something will always be one somewhere. It's just a matter of how impactful they are. With a 3700x, at 1080p, I would say you are good till at least a 2080 super. If you jump up to 1440p, or 4k, I would say a 2080ti, 3070, or 3080.

Basically 1080p @144hz would bottleneck? Whats a GPU thats one step up and wouldnt bottleneck?
how noticable is a gpu bottleneck performance wise, can i get away with it until i upgrade gpu in the future?
As others wrote already it depends, on lots of things, not only CPU and GPU. RAM also play a small part, not as big as the GPU and CPU, but it does.
It will also depends on the detail settings you select on the game, 1080p 144Hz using what? -> low, medium, high, ultra, a personal mix of all those?
And finally it also depends on the game are you playing, Far Cry5, Rocket League, LoL, Fornite, Valorant, BF5, CS:GO, R6S, The Division 2, MS Flight Smiulator 2020, etc.? not all game engines works the same.
