I am running an rtx 2070 super and i feel like my 7700 is holding it back

Would barley be an FPS difference. About 5 - 10 more. A 5600X would be a real upgrade.

I have a feeling that i will benefit from extra cores and threads

but the 3600 has 2 more cores and 4 more threads so wouldnt that also affect fps

Alot of games don't utilize that many cores, and the cores of the 3600 are barley faster compared to the 7700ks cores;

I did a similar move in the past, going from 6700k to 8086k where I remain. Clocks/fps are not that much different but the smoothness improved in the games I play. It also depends on the title. Some are better able to make use of more CPU than others. IMO a 3600 would still be enough of an improvement to consider.
