I recently upgraded by GPU to a GTX1660 Super from a GTX 1050, but then I realised that my CPU (i5-7600) is bottlenecking my GPU, especially in open world games like AC and GTA V where I struggle to maintain 60fps.

I'm looking to upgrade my i5-7600 to a Ryzen 5 3600, but is the performance gain worth replacing my entire CPU + Motherboard for? or should I go for a 2600 or just wait out for Gen 4?
You can consider a 2700X on Amazon that cost pretty much the same as a 3600. It's a good processor that comes with a good stock heatsink.
