My current motherboard is the ASRock A320M

I don't want to OC just keep things normal/stock so should I just upgrade the processor instead?

Specs:
ASRock A320m
Ryzen 3 1200
Corsair 16x2 at 2666
Rx 6600 8gb
Corsair CX 550 80+ bronze

If you don't need anything "special like OC or fast RAM), that MB would do for a 6 core CPU, I would just grab a used R5 2600 or 3600(non-x), they should go for cheap nowadays and would be more than match for that GPU.

I’m thinking about getting the R5 3600, what would be the best site to get one from

It's always best to check locally where you ca return easily if anything wrong.
So I chose the Ryzen 5 3600 & with 6 cores it'll be good just for gaming, I didn't want to buy the Ryzen 9 3000s 12 cores cause it's expensive at the moment & from research that's too many cores just for normal things & gaming, & With the 8 cores theyare kinda out of my price range right now even though it's $100 more, The 5 3600 will be better than my 3 1200 though.
