    Need help on deciding a good budget cpu (not an APU) along with a gpu!

      Hi! I need some advice to help me determine a good budget CPU upgrade that's FM2+ socket compatible (not an APU) along with a graphics card that can handle my PSU that can play certain games like battlefield 4 at a playable frame rate at around medium-high graphics settings. One CPU I found was pretty good was an Athlon X4-860k (Best CPU: the 10 top processors from AMD and Intel | TechRadar ) but I'm not sure if it's the best choice. The budget I'm hoping for both items to combine is at least $200 CDN or a little lower if possible, if not then $250 is okay. Thanks! 

       

      PC Specs currently:

      AMD A6-6400k 3.9 GHZ with HD 8470D Graphics

      Gigabyte FM2+ Socket GA-F2A78M D3H

      8 Gbs ddr3 hyper X Ram

      Windows 10 Direct X 12

      EVGA 500W Bronze 80+ certified PSU
