Country: Lithuania

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Escape from Tarkov, Video editing (Premiere), Grand theft auto 5, DayZ, 

Existing build: CPU: I5 8400 Motherboard: PRIME H310M-K RAM: 2X8 2666MHz GPU: GTX 1070

Wanting to upgrade to: CPU: i3-12100F(105 Euro) Motherboard: B660M DS3H DDR4(110 Euro) GPU: RTX 3060 (350~ Euro)

It most certainly is an upgrade, although I would spring a bit more for an RTX 3060 Ti, better bang for buck. 

Also, what about PSU? 

Not an expert, just bored at work. **may edit my posts a few times after posting**

You can't get a 3060 plus a 12100 with board for 500eur... You should rather get a 6600 or 6600xt

There are used 3060 for 350-ish Euros in Lithuania.

If you can get those in budget , you should go for them.
