Need to upgrade CPU but my motherboard is cheap and i really need help

I bought a Cybertron Electrum AMD A6-series gaming computer few weeks ago and just bought a geforce gtx 1060 6gb so i could play games like total war warhammer and the forest and so on. i plan to get into pc gaming over console. but it turns out my cpu comes up short for most of my games i want to play, and i found out my motherboard is pretty cheap, so upgrading the cpu is and issue. im not as tech savy as id like to be so im at a loss, i cant seem to figure out what to do i could really use some help.

Motherboard: ASRock FM2A68M-DG3+
RAM:16 GB DDR3
Processor Series: AMD A6
Processor Speed: 3.5 GHz
Graphics Coprocessor: AMD Radeon R5 (integrated) i added a geforce gtx 1060

    The A10-7890k is the strongest that board supports. Go to asrock's site, download and install the latest bios.
    But even after that, the cpu will still be the weak link. You will have to save up for a brand new platform(cpu, mobo, ram).

    That would be a nice improvement over your old cpu. It's only a cpu and mobo combo, so you'll need ram.
    Make sure you get 2 sticks instead of one, and that the rated speed is at least 3000mhz or more.
