Would like to start upgrading things over time with each pay check with a budget friendly layout. I'm currently happy with my monitors & OS. If it helps the build some here are some games I play. Ark, Fallout 76, WoW, Conan and some other survival games. Thanks for any help I really do appreciate the time.

I don't think you want to go much faster than a GTX 1060 with the FX-8320......
....and I think the 8320 might be one of the fastest CPUs for your current motherboard......
so I think you are looking at a new motherboard and CPU to start with.

For the money, Ryzen is the way to go. Much depends on your budget, though. You will need new ram, and a better quality PSU, also. You will most likely see a sizeable performance boost, with just that, even with that GPU. FX is pretty terrible.
