Yea, ik i would have to get a new mobo. But i heard that my cpu bottlenecks the new gpu's.
 
Most people have a bottleneck somewhere. The fact is that games are much more dependent on a strong GPU, so a new GPU would give you more of a boost than a newer CPU. Stat with a new GPU - since you're wanting one anyway. If you still think you need more, then get a new MB and CPU too.

It does bottleneck them, but only under heavy games is it even moderately noticeable. The GTX 1060 is a good option with the FX-8320 and is cheaper (and better) than the RX 480.
