My PC build right now is running:
AMD A8-7600
GTX 1050
8GB ram
250GB SSD
1TB HDD
600w psu

With this build, Current gen games like fallout 4, DS3 runs at 30-70 fps at 1080p and run CS GO(which is my main game) at 90-160fps. I want a cheap upgrade that can run cs go at 200+fps and all games at 60fps. Whats a good replacement for my apu and mobo? i have a strict budget of $150.

Sorry for my bad english

With any of the current gen parts you'll need to ram(ryzen is DDR4 only and Intels is DDR4 and/or DDR3l). What you have now is likely DDR3(1.5-1.65v) and not DDR3L(1.35v). So you will need to budget in ram which will take it over $150.
