Need help choosing new CPU for computer upgrade

So I recently bought PUBG and after playing for a few hours, it hasnt been very enjoyable due to the constant fps lag and crashing. I decided it was time for me to upgrade some of my computer parts, and after looking around on pcpartpicker, I dont really know what cpu to get, so im here to get some help on that.

my computer build currently

Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-F2A88XM-D3H Micro ATX FM2+
CPU: AMD Athlon X4 860K
GPU: GIGABYTE Radeon R9 270X 2GB
RAM: 8gb (2x4gb) (should I get 2 more sticks of 4gb or 1 stick of 8gb for 16gb?)

  1. If you only have a single 8GB stick now, and if you can match it, get another.
    You are darn near the top of the CPU food chain now for the AM2+ socket. No sense throwing more money into a slightly faster CPU. The gfx card does need upgrading for that game however. You are about at the minimum requirements with the R9-270X and only 2GB VRAM. This page may help you decide what to do.
