My plan is to play and stream CS:GO on a semi-pro level with a 144hz monitor.

You might be thinking that I don't need a crazy powerful machine to play csgo because it's almost 10 years old. You don't if you want to play casually 60-144 fps.
I did some research to see what kind of PC I need to play CSGO at over 144fps constantly. I came to a decision to go for ryzen 7 5800x and nvidia 2060 or 3060.
The main problem of this build is the GPU, they are ridiculously expensive right now, and there is a shortage for GPUs in my country's stores. I don't know why or how the market works, but it is something I will not spend money on right now.
Streaming csgo with my current specs gets me 30-50fps. Basically, unplayable.
My current specs are:

MB: Asus h110m-k d3, CPU: i5 6600k, GPU: Radeon rx 580 8gb, RAM: 8gb 1600mhz ddr3, PSU: Seasonic GM 650.

Specs I am going for:
MB: undecided still, CPU: ryzen 7 5800x, GPU: Nvidia RTX 2060 or higher, RAM: 16gb ddr4 3200mhz, PSU: not changing.

The question is, can I buy the CPU and keep my Radeon RX 580 8gb for now? Will it bottleneck? Will there be any problems streaming CSGO while I wait for the GPU prices to go down.
