Need help upgrading my pc for CS:GO

Okay, I play CS:GO almost exclusively. My current specs are:
MOBO: MSI A58M-E35
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 760K
RAM: 16GB
GPU: R9 270X

So, when i first built it in 2015, it was completely fine on CS:GO. But there have been lots of updates and it has made my performance completely drop. I might get 150 fps in spawn then it drops to 80 around smokes. I've tried everything I know in-game to try and limp it as long as I can. But i know my CPU is bottlenecking and holding back my GPU. I was looking to upgrading both to an Intel Pentium G3258 (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00KPRWAZQ/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1L99BGKTUZYTH&coliid=I1KJH5HE1XSIR7&psc=1) and this motherboard (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ESETQOK/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=1L99BGKTUZYTH&coliid=I2J4A1YI4POU8M) and put the Hyper 212 Evo cooler and overclocking the CPU. I was wondering if this would be a good upgrade for CS:GO. I picked these parts because I can upgrade the CPU in the future because the socket is future-proof pretty much. How will this CPU and Motherboard be with my GPU? Thank you!

    The G2358 is an excellent overclocker, although you'll want a Z170 based motherboard to get the most out of it. You might experience some slight bottlenecking with the Pentium, but you should be OK.
