Haven't really changed my PC in going on 6 years now and could use some advice on what to upgrade and keep etc. Looking to be able to play most modern PC games on a decent level. Any tips would be helpful.
Believe it or not, the 3570K can still hold out for most titles available now (especially when overclocked), so I’d probably just do something like this.
(I’d probably wait until newer chips, which support faster standards are released, and then upgrade)

wouldnt the 3570 bottleneck the 1660?
it might but at that point a cpu upgrade would cost a lot more than just adding in a new gpu, psu, and ram. It'd probably include a new mobo, new ram, new cpu (ofc).
Another good upgrade solution would be an SSD to speed up load times
