I have a r9 390 which is basically a nvidia 1060. Im looking to upgrade and i have 500$ to spend. Is there anything worth it?

Yes, definitely. Look at the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 or for a little more the 2070 SUPER. Those would provide a significant upgrade.

I was looking at the 2070. Mixed reviews. Most good. But i read it struggles to get 60 fps on battlefield because it doesnt have dlls? Also i should state i game on 144hz 1080p

The 2070 has DLSS but using it isn't needed and it is only going to struggle with 60fps if ray tracing is enabled.

The 2070S is the best you can buy for $500. However, if you're playing Battlefield, the 5700XT can be had for $100 less or so, and offers more FPS in Battlefield (V) than the 2070S. Look up benchmarks for individual games you play and go from there.

Well then also factor in your monitor, if you max out the $500 for a 2070S and you have a Freesync monitor you won't be really benefiting.

All 10 series and later NVidia cards support Freesync frame rate synchronization over Display Port which a 1080p@144hz monitor should have.
