Question CPU upgrade

Hello all,
I have a rig with the following specs / components

AMD fx 8350 4 Mhz
MSI Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
16 GB RAM DDR3
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
PSU Cooler Master Masterwatt Lite 600
ASUS Xonar DGX Sound card

For reasons of a tight budget, I would like to make a CPU upgrade that would allow me to push high settings on some recent game titles (playing at 1080p) without bottlenecking, but that that would allow me to recycle my other components which honestly are in very good shape.
Could you suggest a good Intel / Ryzen CPU and motherboard that would suit me? My budget is around 300€.

Thank you kindly!

Asrock b450m or non m pro 4

B450 msi mortar (very good b450 board secretly a x470 and better than budget x470)

Any x470 board

Im not a fan of gigabyte much. Have the b450m asrock pro 4 myself very very good budget mobo. But with 300 budget id aim a little higher wherr b450 mortar is probably your best bet. And ofcourse a x470 near that price will mostly do but prob overkill as they all overclock nicely.

With your budget no doubt pair up with a 2600(x).

And em well even ryzen 1200 is enough to play all at 1080p but with your budget id go 2600 or atleast grab from 1500 (8 threads) so it will suit nicer with ur 1060.

Recently had bought a 1200 myself to budget oc. Ryzen is a new world you will love it.

My pick: one of the b450 boards good budget too, lean to mortar on ur budget for better and more stable vrm combined with 2600 and oc that.

Best fit. Goodluck

Ik have the Gskill Aegis 3000mhz 16cl on this board working at xmp immediately at 3133 in dual rank a2 b2. Dunno if ur ram does the same but i like you picked the same set up as i did :).

I can screenshot the xmp profile no changes 16cl 3133 if u want or an oced 14cl 3000.
