Hi, currently when playing games I have constant drops in FPS and it's big drops. I usually start off in a game about 170fps and then after a game or two it will dip down to 40-100 fps. Since this is happening, I think it is a bottleneck! If this is a bottleneck, what would you recommend for an upgrade in new CPU, RAM and Motherboard.

Here are my specs:
GPU:MSI GTX GeForce 1060 6GB
CPU: AMD FX-6300
RAM: Kingston Hyperx Fury DDR3
Power Supply: Corsair CS650M

Would appreciate a quick reply if possible! Thanks :)

It's very likely; you'll get diminishing returns quickly above a 1050 Ti or so. It's a very old CPU that never was a really a gaming beast.
Thanks!!

look at it? does it have any brand names or model number markings on it? I am assuming this is an all in one closed loop water cooler. otherwise post a pic.

My daugher is running my old 1060 6g MSI gaming X on an AMD A10 cpu. she will be going ryzen 5 1600 and I will be getting a 2600 for myself soon.
