Upgrading 1500X, which one should I go with?

I planned on upgrading my 1500x with Black Friday rolling around, and it looks like AMD prices are substantially lower. My main game that I play is PUBG, and I feel it has a bit of a stutter due to the CPU. It is matched with an MSI RX 580.

I will more than likely upgrade my GPU at some point in the future as well, but I am looking for around $300 as a max point for the new CPU. Any suggestions on which would be the best option? I do not do any editing, uploading, etc. My PC is only used for gaming.

Thanks!

I do have 16GB's already. I was planning on going the GTX route in the future, the price is just holding me back from upgrading so quickly.

Here's some...

  • 1500X
  • RX 580
  • 16GB G.Skill Ripjaws V
  • MSI B350 Tomahawk Motherboard

I also have a triple 27" 1080P set up. I don't use it very often, but that is one of the big reasons I want to upgrade both CPU and GPU in the future. Let me know if you need any other specs.
