Replaced my CPU, Motherboard & RAM.
Excellent choices overall, that 3gb 1060 maybe an issue if you targeting 144fps @ 1080p.

Just curious why you went with the 3700X vs 5600X, although that latter is 6 cores its
generally significantly faster in single threaded work loads and can match or beat the 8 core 3700x in most CPU intensive applications.

In my country the 5600X is cheaper than the 3700X not sure if it's the same where you are.

Well for the GPU, I definitely want to upgrade it, but not right now because of the prices. And the CPU I got it for like €230, the 5600x was too expensive.
You should definitely use XMP profile and overclock to 3400 - 3600 MHz which is sweet spot for Ryzen CPUs.

also please update your security config as it’s from 2019
I'm already using the XMP profile. Will try to overclock it, didn't think of it, will update the security config too. (y)
