Yeah not a budget as a whole but id like to spend less than $400 per part, and gaming strictly.

It depends on what you want out of your PC. Without that it's hard to answer what is "worth it and what isn't". For example, if you want to play the latest games at high settings, you might want to look into better graphics cards.

I want to keep an up to date pc, and be able to play anything I desire without issue. Mainly fps games and rpg titles at the moment, im also in the market for a new monitor.

What do you want to upgrade? (GPU looks OK, as long as you stick to 1080p, CPU should be more than enough)

Wanna upgrade to 4k looking at getting new monitor as well.

Your 1060 should do good for now. I would wait until RTX 3000 is released to either get those cards or cheaper ryzen 2000 series cards.

CPU is decent, but a new one will help and will be better for the future games.

Motherboard needs upgrade to go along with the CPU. X570 is nice because it is future proof with PCIE gen 4 so you can get faster drives in the future.

You might also need to upgrade your PSU to handle the new parts. (cant tell because its not listed)

Would the 3600x be a better buy? and im down for a 570, and as far as gpu would a 2060 super be worth it?

If you overclock the 3600x, you can get the same performance with the stock cooler. If you want to spend the extra $30 to get it could help and you don't have to overclock.

You could probably get 3.9 or 4.0 GHz for the base clock on the 3600x.

3.8 GHz on the 3600.

At the moment, 2060 super is decent, but I would wait for RTX 3000 series to release in a few months according to leaks, they have around a 40% performance boost.

Then you could either get a new card, or get a cheaper RTX 2000 series because of the price drops.

Asus Prime B350-plus motherboard has an adequate-lower OC capability, with 4+2 power phases,it is supposed from RAM QVL that can take even 3600mhz,even 4133mhz kit,but in reality in order to add such Ram sticks, you have to make a very serious OC,and such a scenario will send this Motherboard to its limits, will be stressed too much.

It is supposed that truly fast RAM kits are giving some FPS benefit in Gaming.

So,it is risky to say "go for a Great CPU Air Cooler or LC,to highly OC your CPU,to stick such fast RAM kit".

If i were you,i would have taken a better motherboard,like a X370 or a X470,(such as a Taichi one),to better support in such scenarios, generally a strong power phased motherboard.

It is also difficult to say "buy a B450 or a X470 ,"Max" edition motherboard,to have also future support in newer 3000 series CPUs" , because this is half the job,even in such an option you won't have Pcie 4.0 NVME SSD capability,to accelerate better than ever your Build,it is supposed your exact CPU is not unworthy,it DESERVES some more continuity,it is still good enough to be dismissed. Unfortunately,X570 platform does not support this awesome CPU of yours.

Also, the 4K Gameplay is an EXPENSIVE sport especially if you want (right now) to play some games with Visual Quality settings from High to Ultra-MAXimum, you would have definitely needed at least an RTX 2080 Super,or an RTX 2080 Ti,or a mighty Titan RTX GPU.

As for now,a Samsung Evo plus m2 ssd,sound a better idea,or a Sabrent m2 ssd, generally a much faster NVME ssd.

Also,if you had to OC in a better motherboard this 1800X,you would have also needed a Strong cooling solution,such as a Thermalright True Spirit 140 Power, which even though is 360 Watt TDP,it is 50$ Cost only.

Also,in order to make a Good OC,your PSU must be minimum 750 Watt,or much preferred in 850 Watt,in order to have in your system an RTX high series GPU + OC,in order not stressed a PSU in its limits,must always be with remained wattage left.
