If you only game, and only plan on gaming in the foreseeable future, the AMD FX line is an affordable choice that will provide great performance in games. If you want the CPU to last you for a few GPU upgrades, I'd recommend the FX-8350. If you don't plan on upgrading past a GTX 970 or equivalent, you'll be fine with an FX-6350 or an FX-8320. If you are looking for the bare minimum, the FX-6300 is still a great choice.

Hmm you need a fm2 socket cpu to replace your current one. However fm2 platform is old now, so I would suggest you to buy a intel cpu with mobo.

PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel Pentium G3258 3.2GHz Dual-Core Processor ($65.99 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-B85M-DS3H-A Micro ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($39.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $105.98
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

You can overclock g3258 cpu to 4.2ghz on stock cooler. It even outperforms the fx8350 in games, and gives almost similar performance to i7 4790 when oc'ed.

Actually your current mobo is fm2+ socket mobo and can only fit fm2/fm2+ cpus. The other guy who was suggesting Fx cpus are all am3+ socket cpus and these are not compatible with your mobo either. The cpu I suggested is a socket lga1150 cpu which is only compatible with socket lga1150 motherboards. Let me know your budget so I can tell you a more suitable cpu+mobo upgrade.
