How much longer will i be able to play at 60fps with this pc?

Your GPU should last you awhile, I'd estimate a good year or 2 if all you're looking for is 60 fps...especially if you're willing to lower the resolution/detail settings on certain games in order to maintain 60 hz.

 

 I had 570 4 gb paired with a 4c/8t Ryzen 5 and never came across a game I couldn't run on 1080 'high' settings at ~60 fps. I even used it for Oculus VR titles and it was adequate as long as I ran the games on low to medium detail settings. I'd definitely look into upgrading your CPU first as that is much older. Personally, I'd recommend going the AMD route, it gives you the most bang for your buck...you can't go wrong with something like a Ryzen 5 2600/3600 or even a $85 1600AF, paired with your current GPU.

 

Just don't upgrade for the sake of upgrading...if a new game comes out and you're finding your system is no longer adequate to satisfy YOUR requirements, upgrade or build a new one.

Im wondering how much longer will i be able to get 60fps with this specs?

ram: 16gb

gpu: rx 570 4gb

monitor 1080p (60hz)but i can lower resolution, no problem to me.

Your GPU is good, but the CPU may become a limiting factor in the future (In terms of CPU intensive games). You can always achieve 60fps in the years to come, but your resolution will deteriorate.

Then eventually your GPU will need an upgrade.

Eventually all parts will need upgrading, but upgrade as you need.

Depends on the games you're playing and the detail settings. There are AAA titles out there now that any 4GB card would struggle to keep up with at 1080p, and there's Potatocraft which can hold 1080p on a carefully crafted turd with an HDMI cable wedged into it.

Dropping from High to Medium/High or Low/High mixtures will save you on CPU-Drawcalls, and lighten the GPU loads needed.
You are probably good for some time, given those sacrifices, and with added sharpening at 1600x900 (on a smallish sub24" panel) it'll hold up reasonably well on many games except maybe extreme examples. (Like Kingdom Come - Deliverance expectations or bad Assassins Creed optimization)

Depends entirely on the game. 

 

If we count all games, it would be [negative whatever the release date of AC Oddessy]

A cpu upgrade is way more important than an ssd for gaming. At least now while games are still being designed for systems with mechanical drives. That may all change though with next gen consoles using SSD.

 

Here would be a pretty nice price to performance platform upgrade:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor  ($174.99 @ Amazon)

Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory  ($64.99 @ Newegg) 
Total: $314.96
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

Though you might have to do a BIOS update from a USB drive to use a 3600 in a B450 board. It's actually a great time to do a platform upgrade. This is about the cheapest I have ever seen a platform upgrade for something of this quality for its time.
