I'm planning to upgrade my GPU, but need help..

I'm planning to upgrading my GTX 1060 to a 3050 or 3060
 
My specs:
 
Intel core i5 9400F.
16GB DDR4 (2133Mh'z)
SSD: Samsung EVO 970 (250GB)
Hard Disk: 2TB Western digital (NAS Type)
4 Standard Case Fans + 2 BeQuiet Fans (Silent Wings 3) + Thermaltake Commander FP
MSI B360M PRO-VH.
Corsair RM650X PSU.
 
Will it be enough to run a new graphics card?
I hope somebody can help me out!
Tips, help are also welcome!

Yeah totally enough but a 3050 is a minor upgrade.

 

Also look into the rx6600 and 6600xt bother are normally cheaper AND faster.

 

The 9400f will hold any of these back due to it being a pure 6core.

So a RTX 2060 will be better then a 3050?

First my friend. In what country do you live? because most of the time the rx 6600 not only costs the same as the 3050 but is even cheaper while absolutely ripping it in performance. Idk about the 9400f being a bottleneck though. Being a pure 6 core does not hold it back and Linus even tested the 3060 with the i7 4770k and it did not hold back its performance, so a 9400f will be a perfect match with a 6600 or even a 6700 clas gpu

I'd look at running a 3060 or a 2070. For purely gaming I think the only hold back would be your memory speed.

I live in europe, the cards are still rocking high prices and that sucks.. but if i pair it with 9400F how many FPS will i get if im playing at Medium/High settings? ive seen its also compatible for 1440P (RTX 2060) i'm using 2 monitors with (75Hz)

Thats not what I said.

 

A rx6600 is as fast as a 3060 but priced like a 3050 a 6600xt is faster and often still cheaper than a 3060.

 

A 2060 is faster than a 3050 but usually a rx6600 is still cheaper and that one is faster than a 2060.

You will easily get 120fps on 1080p and even 1440p though on some games you will be vram limited (keyword: SOME)
