This is a slightly strange post. Why does your handle say you have a 3700x?

 

Is the choice between A) upgrading your CPU to a 5600x and keeping your 2060 or B) getting a 3600 and replacing the 2060 with a 3060?

 

You understand that with graphics card prices what they are there will be a vast gulf in how much money you spend between these two options, right?

 

If you are only/primarily gaming then the 3060 route is a better choice, assuming you are willing to pay for it. The 3600 is enough for gaming and gains from the 5600x will be marginal in most situations.

 

However, since we don't know why you want to upgrade, IE what "problem" you're trying to solve, it's difficult to give a meaningful answer.

Friends don't let friends use Userbenchmark. Ban the term "bottleneck." Corps aren't your friends. If the PC does what you need it to do well enough, it's good enough. Don't build the "best" system, build the system that makes you happy. 

 

System specs:

Ryzen 5 5600X w/Arctic Freezer 34 eSports Duo | ASRock B550 PG Velocita | Radeon RX 6800 Reference

16GB Crucial Ballistix DDR4-3600mhz CL16 | 1TB Samsung 970 Evo Plus, 3TB Toshiba P300

Fractal Design Meshify 2 Compact | Seasonic Focus GX 750W

Are you asking which model of 3060 is best price performance for you?  If so, In the current market availability can be more important than price/performance partially because prices vary so much. The 3060 is not top end, so In normal times it would be at what point is a 3060ti or a 3070 a better buy?  The problem is prices swing so wildly lately that it’s no longer possible to really tell.  In normal times it would a much easier to answer question.  Not knowing what is available to you or what you or what is being charged for what by whom, makes it effectively impossible. A slower card might cost more than a faster card right now.  Buying by model just doesn’t work atm.  All I can give are generalities.
 

 As a general rule, hot rodded cards of any type tend to have lower price performance than other types but it’s not hard and fast.  The issue though is that if one needs a minimum level of performance a hot rodded card might get you there whereas a non hot rodded one might not.

Your old PC is more than fine to be perfectly honest..

A 5600X and an RTX 3060 is a nice upgrade, don't get me wrong, but it's absolutely not worth the price/performance increase in 2021 @Randomgamerwith2600x..

The move for the last few months seems to be get a gpu in hand and then worry about the rest. And if it’s not in hand it doesn’t count.  A “great place in line” has gone up in smoke when manufacturers actually dump whole lines of cards in order to create a minutely different card at a much higher price.
