I have a GtX 1060 thats paired with an outdated fx cpu and a 400w power supply. I want buy a new motherboard cpu and ram but am having a difficult time choosing which ones. I am on the budget side of things what would you guys recommend. I already have a case and im pretty sure I might need a bigger power supply. Any ideas are appreciated.

The new Ryzen 3 3100 or 3300X (if you can find one) are the best budget CPU available right now (3300X is better since all cores are on the same CCX).

You'll need to make sure the UEFI/BIOS is updated to a version that support these CPUs.
