With your budget there is nothing I would do, especially if those monitors are 1080p FullHD ones.

Save money for bigger upgrade.

 my monitors are Flatron m2380D and Flatron m2362D .. I think they're really old! Will new monitors enhance my experience? otherwise would do you think a good upgrade would be going up to $1000?

Without new monitor(s), I see no reason for upgrade. With new monitor, about only thing I would upgrade is video card but as video cards are currently very expensive because miners, I would delay that for later.

You could add SSD drive, but also SSD prices are very high atm.

If you want good deals, wait some time for lower prices. For video card, 2 months or longer. SSD 4 months or longer.

the 1060 (3 GB) can currently give decent framerates for 60 Hz refresh monitors at 1080P now, but, depending on game, some newer games are rumored to suffer during 4c/4t hread overtasking....particularly one at stock 6600 non-K clockspeeds...

Yes currently you can get a 3GB GTX 1060 for the former price of the 6GB GTX 1060 -- at least it's something and all you really give up are slightly better FPS higher settings at higher resolutions with the 6GB. The only way to get a high end GPU at a somewhat decent price is to buy a complete system, which is rather unfortunate.

Of course, newer monitors (1440P) would demand a GTX1080, which dictates a dropped in 7700K...plus a cooler. There goes ~$900 pretty darn quickly...


Even the i5-7400/6500 saturates a GTX1060, typically...
 

 
fast forward to 3:22 to see assorted processors' performance (all limited by GTX1060) in BF1
 
I'd stand pat for now...
