2600X-3600X i say its not worth it.
Aorus b450 elite support new 5000 series cpu's,so unless you are really trying to push some overclocks on the new 5000 series cpu (if you upgrade to it) its not worth changing the motherboard either imo.
So save ur money

Hi thanks for your comment i currently had a Vega 56 in the system with the 2600x would I gain no benefit at all upgrading?

at 4k thats all GPU,so u dont have to worry about cpu bottlenecking,and yes at 4K there is a significant difference between 3060ti/3070 again a 3080.
6800XT looks promising too. Either way if OP sells the Vega, I bet he can get like $150 at the very least, it's not that bad of a card.

Try to see if you can get a 3080 at $700. An effective price of $500-600 is great investment for 4K gaming

i can get like £200 for my card in the uk they go for £250 and i can get a 3060 ti for £500 a £3080 is round £800 though

We actually had a vega 64 same price as my 1070 ti but problem was it's a blower design and that was before lockdown now they go for double.
On to the main question.I would wait before i upgrade cpu or even gpu.They will have more stock soon and the 3xxx parts should drop in prices by then.

The problem with the 5xxx models is we have them in stock but they are double the price of my R5 2600 so a bad investment price to performance.Nvidia said i think end of Feb there will be stock?Can't remember but problem now is scalpers buy the gpu's and sell it for twice the price.Best is to wait till stock are available.
