You will run these games at max settings with even a gtx1660 , it will run battlefield 5 at max settings also. The 1660 is easily 2x faster than a gtx770 or more.
Save your money for a cpu upgrade in the near future.

Na, 2500 is not so good for BF5.
But a cheap i7 2700k will be much better with BF5. It should work with your motherboard.
A used one should be about $70.

144hz is good for very fast cpu's. 60hz is good for you.
If you want 4k for older games at med, high settings buy the gtx2060. The 1660 is too weak for 4k.
