You are going to need to upgrade to DDR4 as well for any modern Intel or AMD platform.
What Is your budget?

I would wait until AMD ryzen 3000 launches to see what value they bring and what they do to the pricing of current CPUs.
I'm looking for something that can fully utilize my graphic card and possibly retired with it. Budget 250-350?
