Monitor first, your CPU might be able to keep up with the 3080, maybe not on certain games, but you might want 4K, because RTX 30 series handles higher resolutions better. 1440p is fine too, but that's your choice and at 4K you're more likely to be GPU bound instead of CPU.

Check this review to see how RTX 3080 does in 1440p and 4K when compared to its rival.

If you do anything CPU intensive other than gaming a CPU upgrade could be a good option.

 

If it's just gaming consider if the games you play already max out your displays. If you're already pushing out more FPS than your screens can handle it makes no sense upgrading to have 100 too many fps instead of 50.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯
