I would like to know a good CPU for my computer but I don't which one is good. These are my current specs.

CPU: AMD FX(tm)-6300 RX Six-Core Processor

GPU: Radeon RX 560 Series

Memory: 8 GB DDR3
Please tell me if I need to tell you more information, I'm new to these stuff.

Thank you so much!
Your welcome.

Another one I was thinking of which could also include the GPU is this...

AMD Ryzen 1600 AF (performs close to 2600) $85.

Motherboard: MSI B450M PRO-M2 MAX Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($74.98 @ Amazon)
Memory: Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory ($69.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER 4 GB OC Video Card ($159.99 @ B&H)
Total: $304.96
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

This would give you a new platform and better GPU, pretty much like a new gaming system.

There's nothing really better that I'd recommend for a older socket unless it's pretty much free but even the boards were pretty limiting to what would work.

What is your budget?

The Ryzen 1600 AF can be found for about $85 USD, B450 board is about $70 and then about $70 for a 2x8gb at 3200 kit.

Please specify your budget.
Basically you're looking for a new pc - new cpu, new motherboard, new ram.

On your current system putting a new cpu without also changing motherboard and ram would be waste of money.

My budget is around 300-400, whatever makes my computer better. Sorry if that sounds a little too harsh.

One last question, does any other parts matter because I want to make sure the compatibility 100% works, or every part will be compatible when I install the new parts?

Your current motherboard is Micro ATX and both upgrades I recommend are Micro ATX so it should fit without issue. Since your replacing the motherboard this will require a clean installation of Windows 10. The 1650S has the same PSU requirements as the RX 560 however it does require a 6-pin PCIE connection. Which PSU do you have?

How would I find my power supply, I am new to this computer building, so sorry for asking too much.

I cannot open my case because when I set it up, I put a plastic thing(I do not know the name) around it because so it won't fall. It is not a cover it is like a plastic wire, but it is not a wire.
