This is what I would do, it’s not worth switching your cpu now unless it’s not good enough. It’s a new cpu.

Your PSU scares me lol

 

Would probably just go for an RX 5700 + 1080p 144hz free-sync display, can use your GPU to stream, usually at 720p 30/60fps

 

but I'm not sure if you'd want to keep that PSU with any GPU upgrade.

 

Although depending on what you play your 1060 is fine

 

not sure about upgrade to an intel CPU given the price, Ryzen 4000 will be out later in the year.

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...
 

Spoiler

 

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

I bought the Corsair Vengeance 750M 80+ silver at canada computers at around 90CAD, its tier A rated op @W0vo

 

I'd say at least wait for nvidia 3000, as it will probably lower the prices of everything else and its just around the corner

Might as well wait for PSU prices to go down and just grab a better monitor for now

"Dell E170S 17.0" 1280x1024" ? it's time to upgrade lol

It's only $200 starting for a 144hz display, just check reviews on it or the others around $250

Ah, still an upgrade, idk you're in a weird spot, because you don't really need to upgrade your GPU for that monitor, and you can live steam just fine using NVENC.

 

How's your phone?

 

Would Wait for Ryzen 4000 on the CPU, maybe big navi, 30 series for the GPU

 

the monitor's the only thing left here. Could go for a big 4k monitor as well that you'll never need to replace if you don't care about 144hz.
