Partial PC upgrade under $400 CAD


Recently upgraded to a 1060 6gb and now my fx-6300 is bottlenecking it pretty hard. I'm looking for a cpu/Mobo and possibly ram upgrade (ddr3 to ddr4) if needed. what is the best performance per dollar I can get for under $400 cad?

PSU and case will be fine
(ATX and 650w)
