I have a GIGABYTE AORUS 3060 TI, 16GB RAM (8x2), CoolerMaster ML240L v2 AIO, 600W PSU.

What CPU do you recommend I get if I want to play 1080p, say, Call of Duty?
My budget is like 350USD$ but if it were cheaper, it would help for sure.

so you need a cpu and motherboard?
what speed is the ram? what the make and model of the 600w psu?
The PSU came with my computer a couple years ago, and I never upgraded it, but I mean it still works fine so. It is a HEC-600TC-5WK
The ram is 2400mhz, I guess I would need a new mobo if I were to get a 10th gen/AMD chip. What do you recommend?

how about
B550/B450 + 3600x /3600 (AMD Combo)
B460 + 10400f/10600kf(intel Combo)
 
That’s a very low quality psu, I would not risk a new system on it. It’s inadequate for a gaming system and puts the system at risk of damage. I would not be surprised if you had instability issues trying to run that gpu.

Your RAM is very slow, for this reason I would look at 10th gen Intel. It will be less impacted by the slow RAM.
