I know fm2 sockets are way out of date and I should really update my motherboard but I do not have the money to buy both atm and really just wanting an upgraded processor from the one I have. I would like to know the best fm2 socket processor for gaming.
Currently I have
Processor: AMD a10-5700 apu with radeon hd graphics at 3.40 ghz
8 gb of ram
Motherboard: msi 2ae0
Also have a gtx 1050 graphics card

I'd not put any money into an almost imperceptibly faster GPU for the old socket...

None of the pre-Ryzens are really going to give 'good' gaming performance and those with integrated Radeon graphics are really only adequate for 1366x768/medium quality and below, unless playing older games...

This summer (July), AMD is likely to release it's X570 boards and R3-5-7-9-3x00 series of desktop CPUs...

Save your money until then if possible...(get a GTX1660 to go with it, or, an RTX2060 if fiscally ambitious)

Is there anything I could get just for the mean time that’s better just until I have enough? What about a amd athlon X4 860k?

Sadly, the computer is past help... not a lot can be done to it, so any money you spend will be wasted.
Save up for another 3 months and get something from AMD Ryzen series - you will be very happy then.
Alright I’ll probably do that. Any suggestions on motherboards for the Ryzen series?
