I'm trying to upgrade my CPU, (I currently have an AMD Vishera and it just isn't cutting it), and I'm trying to get the Intel Core i-7 8700k. But I have a GTX 1060 Nvidia card and my motherboard is a Gigabyte AMD AM3+. I wanted to know if the motherboard I have now is compatible.

If it isn't compatible I was wondering if the GIGABYTE B360M DS3H is compatible with the Intel Core processor and the GTX 1060 card, if not what upgrades do I have to make?

I have 32 GB ram at the moment.
 
To upgrade into a i7 8700k you need a new motherboard and DDR4 ram.
The Gigabyte board you mentioned would work with it but i wouldn't recommend such a low end board for such a high end cpu.
You might also want consider the i7 9700k and AMDs 3rd gen Ryzen cpus like the 3600.
