Get an Intel CPU. MMOs thrive on single core performance. Upgrading to a 8350 would help a little, but you would gain a significant amount of FPS with an Intel CPU.

Without getting a new mobo, the best you can get is a FX8350, new cooler and overclock the hack out of it.

Hi, General milk here. I would say that your setup is more than enough for almost all mmo's. I've played WoW on a much lower quality computer than yours. I got over 60fps on max detail. I see no problem with your computer. I myself have a 8120 with a r9 270x, and i can play any game (except crysis 3) on max detail with more than 60 fps@1920x1080. I would say that your computer is perfect right now, and there's no need to upgrade. But, if there is a problem, it could be the software. What kind of fps are you getting on what games?
