Hi all!

I haven't upgraded my PC in quite some time (Maybe 4 to 5 years).
My actual setup is the following:

MB: M/B AMD M5A97 R2.0 A/L
CPU: AMD FX 6200
GPU: NVIDIA GX760
CHASER: Thermaltake Chaser A31 mid-tower chassis
RAM: 16GB

I can play some games in full graphics but since a couple of years, this is not happening anymore.
For example:

Since Assassins Creed Black Flag... i cannot play this kind of games and full.

What upgrade can you recommend that could boost considerably my setup??

Thank you very much!!

So you aim to change the CPU and GPU entirely? this of course would lead into changing the motherboard as well.
Can you recommend a setup for this??

Yes,..it will work,..unless u want to play Ultra Setting,..and u have that kind of monitor. This should work for another 1-2 years. Before u rebuild the Entire PC.

This sounds great for a couple of years... there is no risk of bottle neck for the CPU that i have??

not just a risk, but a guarantee. you may get decent fps in a lot of modern titles with lower resolutions and settings but most post-processing, physx, anything that the GPU can't totally handle on it's own, is going to have to be turned off.

you can also still just think of these as early additions to your new build though.
keep using this original slight upgrade unless you can't stand the crap performance it offers. then you can just keep upgrading:
make the next batch a new case, cooling & psu. the next; a new board, ram, cpu & cooler.

and go for GTX 20 series GPU, not 10.

Quick check. Drop.all settings to minimum, if your fps increases in the games you're having trouble with significantly then the 1060 will help, if they don't it'll be a complete waste of money.
