I currently have this setup:

CPU: AMD Athlon X4 860k
Motherboard: MSI A68HM-E33 V2
RAM: Kingston 8 GB RAM
GPU: EVGA SC GTX 750 Ti
Storage: Sandisk 120 GB SSD
Seagate 500 GB HDD
PSU: Corsair CX 430 PSU
Case: Fractal Design Core 1000

And I am wondering what to upgrade first out of these components. I am wanting to get higher FPS on games such as GTA V, Tekken 7, Street Fighter V, CS:GO, Battlefield 1. Should I upgrade my GPU first? I am worried as the 860k has no good upgrade options and may be a bottleneck for a better GPU.

I was running an I7-920, which has a lower rating than yours on passmark and it didn't bottleneck a 1060 6 GB....so I'd say you can upgrade that GPU quite a bit without concern.

I would upgrade the cpu/Mobo/Ram/Psu first.
Gpu last.
But that is a big investment. But you cant upgrade to a good gpu(thus increasing your fps) without a better cpu because of serious bottlenecking. Cpu means new mobo and ddr4 ram. New psu because your is weak and bad quality.

Even if you decide to go for a new gpu, buy a new psu.

I think that intel is better per core than AMD. And since that is an i7, it would be better than the AMD. So games would benefit from a better CPU.
