I bought a Cybertron Electrum AMD A6-series gaming computer few weeks ago and just bought a geforce gtx 1060 6gb so i could play games like total war warhammer and the forest and so on. i plan to get into pc gaming over console. but it turns out my cpu comes up short for most of my games i want to play, and i found out my motherboard is pretty cheap, so upgrading the cpu is and issue. im not as tech savy as id like to be so im at a loss, i cant seem to figure out what to do i could really use some help.

Motherboard: ASRock FM2A68M-DG3+
RAM:16 GB DDR3
Processor Series: AMD A6
Processor Speed: 3.5 GHz
Graphics Coprocessor: AMD Radeon R5 (integrated) i added a geforce gtx 1060

That would be a nice improvement over your old cpu. It's only a cpu and mobo combo, so you'll need ram.
Make sure you get 2 sticks instead of one, and that the rated speed is at least 3000mhz or more.
