Thinking about upgrading to a 2060 founders. However I don't have 144hz monitor yet. Should I upgrade the monitor first? (I plan on both eventually) Also how long do you think the 1060 will last before games get to far ahead where it wont run most games at 60fps?

gpu - save till a 2070 price drop.
Cpu - next gen or ddr5.
DarkZV2Beta -No, because PS2 was garbage, and is the primary cause of the collapse of the Japanese game market in the mid 2000s.

imo, wait until you no longer are satisfied with your current PC, and then upgrade the weakest link.
No point jumping the gun.
a quad core i7 was just a rebranded celeron -Pengu1n
Anything that has 3p fps or better is fine with me -mucloud

I just upgraded from a 1060 to 1070ti. If im being honest, if it wasnt for VR, im not certain if it was worth it. I play at 1080p and aim for 60 fps.

If you are just looking to do 1080P 60 I wouldn't bother doing any thing.
I'd wait another Gen to upgrade your GPU and Your CPU should be fine for awhile yet.
but its your money.

So you bought one this past year and you will buy one again this year? It will last for sure 3 years, perhaps up to 6 if you do not mind too much high quality graphics. You should upgrade your components, even your monitor, only if it is broken or if you have a new game that does not run as fast as you want. But first have that game, then the hardware upgrades.

I was thinking about that, but how "good" or reliable are those FE cards usually?

And then buying from nvidia store sounds like a nightmare tbh...
