If your budget allows it you should get a GTX 970. Otherwise you should get a AMD R9 280 or 280x. Cybermonday is also coming up so you could grab some good deals there.

Well get a better PSU, I have to say.
And as for the GPU GTX 970 would be the best upgrade but however you'll need to overclock that FX as there maybe potential bottlenecks with that CPU. But upgrade your PSU before trying to overclock.

I am pretty sure that there are no bottlenecks. The Fx-8350 is already running with 4.2 Ghz per core. It is usually on the game requirements chart in optimal

But you cannot be certain. I've seen alot of post where people complained that they lag in a certain game while others run fine, which was easily fixed by overclocking.
