interesting. Thank you for that perspective, I appreciate that. I guess another option is i could just save up and upgrade my system as a whole. Or buy another more update system for probably the same price and just use this one as a personal browsing pc...

i was trying to spend $400 and under so i just wanted to upgrade one thing and have that hold me over for a bit until i build up a savings more.
i would get a cheap 3600+b450+ram combo, and sell what youve got. a 3600 would age pretty nicely with 6 cores and shouldnt be too costly, a good b450 mobo like an asrock pro4 or msi pro max would be cheap and great for a 3600. regarding ram, youd want 2x8gb 3200mhz cl16, usually can find some on sale around 50 bucks.
maxing out the mentioned budget, you can save 50 bucks with 3200c16 ram and the asrock b450m pro4 but this would be a solid combo that would be a great platform for upgrades in the future, and for overclocking if that interests you:
if you snag good deals on these parts used you can get under 300 usd for all 3, plus no tax. i have a system in progress for a friend thats a 3600, b450m pro4, and 2x8gb 3200c16, was <250 total
