B359-F GAMING Ryzen 5 2400G time for an upgrade

Level 7
Started with ASUS B350-F GAMING motherboard, Ryzen 5 2400G AM4 processor, Samsung EVO 970 500GB, G.SKILL TridentZ RGB F4-2400C15D-16GTZR, EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G3, 220-G3-0650-Y1, ASUS PCE-AC55BT B1 PCI Express AC1200 Dual-Band PCIe Wi-Fi Adapter Featuring Bluetooth 4.2, in a Cooler Master MasterBox 5 Black Mid-tower.

I originally had G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB F4-3200C16D-16GTZR in it, but only one of the sticks would boot. I was told it was because it isn't on the QVL by ASUS. So I went with the 2400.... the 3200 should have worked, I don't know if it was a bad stick or what. Whatever. I'm never this superficial, but I really did go for this ram for looks.

I added an ASUS Republic of Gamers Strix OC Radeon RX 560 Gaming Graphics Card(ROG-STRIX-RX560-O4G-GAMING)

I mainly made the rig as a budget build for playing Elder Scrolls Online. Even before the dedicated GPU it performed beautifully. Now it can any 36GB game I throw at it. But it's time to move beyond the Ryzen 5 2400G. This is STILL a budget build. I am looking at the 3600X at $199.99 right now. I wont be able to afford this until January 24th but it will be my late Christmas present to myself.

Any advice on my build as is or future upgrades would be welcome and appreciated!
