Hey there, my current setup is a A320M-H motherboard with an AMD Ryzen 3 3200G CPU (I think its actually an APU) and a MSI Geforce GTX 1650 super GPU.
I am looking to upgrade my CPU because ive noticed in alot of games like Warzone I am seeing 100% usage on the CPU which i believe to be the bottleneck in my system. (Could be wrong)
I was thinking of possibly going with a ryzen 5 non APU since I believe the on board graphics arent very useful with my GPU. (Again could be wrong)
I was just after some opinions on a good value for money upgrade and if I'm even going about this the right way.
Cheers in advance.

Also want to point out I am aiming for average 144 fps as I have a 144hz monitor. Let me know if the CPU upgrade alone will achieve this or if GPU upgrade is also needed.

You are right, except for having an APU as a "spare GPU" it's better to go for straight CPU for several reasons including less heat since you already have a decent dedicated graphic card.
Whenever you see a component (in this case CPU) hits 100% or close to it), it's definitively a bottleneck or just not good enough.
In your case, R5 3600(x) would be very good upgrade.
