4060 TI would probably be best bang for your buck. About $400 and a near 50% increase in performance, the 4060 will be $300 and only about 30% better. If you are on 1080p, the 4060 will do fine.

I don’t think the motherboard is compatible with those. It’s an Asus prime A520M – K.

I have an ASUS Prime MB, and it works very well with my RTX 4080.

The 3060 is still relevant today. You are not getting that much of a performance boost in jumping to the 4060. You are also getting into the headache of the new 12V power connector debacle. If you were going from a 2060 to a 4060, I would say go for it.
