So, I have this PC:

Mother: Asus Prime B350 Plus
CPU: Ryzen 5 1600X
GPU: Radeon RX480 8GB (XFX edition)
RAM: 2x Corsair Vengeance LPX 8GB DDR4-2400MHz (CMK8GX4M2A2400C14)
Storage: 1x 1TB HDD, 1x 1TB SSD, 1x 250GB SSD
Monitors: 1x 27" 144Hz, 1080p and 1x 24", 75Hz, 1080p (both AOC, realy good)
650 power supply, EVGA, gold edition

I use this PC 99% for gaming, like CoDMW (100+ fps in MP, max 100 fps in Warzone :S)
That build is around 3 years old, if I am right. I want to change something in it, but dont know what exactly.
I was thinking to replace the GPU with a new from NVIDIA, the 3000 series, but a dude told me it wont coop with this CPU, it will bottleneck I suppose.

I am fine with my peripherals. I run Win10 Pro and I dont want to Overclock.
I can pay 500 euros at this time. Any ideas?

Yeah, GPU is definitely the first place I'd start.

What "dude" said this? Ignore him, he's definitely wrong. An NVidia RTX 3000 GPU will definitely work with your CPU.

I mean, it sounds like you have an RTX 3070 in mind, which with 500 euros means you'll get a GPU upgrade and nothing else anyway. An RTX 3070 is going to be a significant upgrade over your RX 480. I'd feel bad running it on a 1080p monitor tbh, RTX 3070 is undoubtedly a 1440p144Hz capable GPU.
