The socket FM2+ is obsolete so you may want to get a new motherboard and CPU together. along with some DDR4

you might find a second hand CPU on ebay but the FM2+ is not the most popular model

Can you check the motherboard model again? It looks like a MSI model number, but they don't list A58M-E35. My guess is A55M-E35 or else A78M-E35.

In any case, the upgrade options are limited, both in terms of number of possible APUs and in terms of additional performance gained for the cost. Here would be the options if you have A78M-E35, with current APU at the top for comparison:

A8-6600K is 3.9 GHz base / 4.2 GHz turbo / DDR3-1866 / intGPU 256 graphics cores @844 MHz =HD8570D

A10-6800K is 4.1 GHz base / 4.4 GHz turbo / DDR3-2133 / intGPU 384 graphics cores @844 MHz =HD8670D

A8-7650K is 3.3 GHz base / 3.8 GHz turbo / DDR3-2133 / intGPU 384 graphics cores @720 MHz =R7-6CU

A10-7850K is 3.7 GHz base / 4.0 GHz turbo / DDR3-2133 / intGPU 512 graphics cores @720 MHz =R7-8CU

So there are a few options, but if you can afford Ryzen, the Ryzen 3 2200G is a good value.
