Specs:
CPU: AMD 860k stock cooler
GPU: GTX 960 2GB
MOB: Gigabyte GA-F2A58M-HD2
RAM: 1 x 8GB of ddr3 at 1666Mhz
HDD: 1TB 5600 rpm + 500GB 5600 rpm
PSU: EVGA 500W
Case: Cooler Master MasterBox Lite 3.1
Keyboard + Mouse: RX400 Cheap but good RGB mouse and keyboard set.

Games I currently play:
GTA V: FPS 30 to 60+ Average 50
BO3: Only runs well on custom zombie maps after round 40+ Frame rate drops under 30fps on before round 40 I get 50+fps. Multiplayer is unplayable with frames at 30 under with a lot of stutter.
Minecraft Java: Runs 60+ on high settings without mods/shaders with mods and shaders 50/60+ but sometimes stutters.

When analyzing games with MSI Afterburner:
GTA V: CPU: 80/100% GPU: 50/70%
Minecraft With Mods: CPU: 100/Mostly always max GPU:30/50%
B03 Custom Zombies: CPU: 100% GPU: Usually half the CPU

I'm kinda looking to move towards Intel but I not sure what my next step is any help is appreciated Thanks.

Not sure if this is of any use the benchmark from the GTA V builtin benchmark tester:

If your CPU is at 100%, i'd start there. See if you can overclock it first?

But after that, you might be best off getting a new Mobo and some DDR4 RAM. 1666Mhz is pretty slow imo. My computer didn't like having 8 gigs of 2133 (But that would probably work for you). The GPU could use an upgrade, but personally i'd save that for last-ish. My 980 is doing great at 1440p, so the 960 should work alright for a while

As OMG said, it's 100% your CPU.

What you should get really depends on how much you'd be ready to spend on your upgrade tho

If you want to play more high quality games. You should upgrade your Graphics card. Your set up is really great. I envy you dude. I hope I can afford to buy that high spec set up.

CPU, GPU, RAM....
Get a ryzen 5 or a decent i5 if money is an issue, and budget wise get a 1060 6GB, and some 3000MHz Ram.

After building a computer with a Ryzen 5, I can highly recommend them for what you're wanting! I'd start there, then look into a better GPU.

The other plan would be to get a CPU and then a motherboard that takes DDR4 RAM. You'd notice a huge improvement there too. It's really down to what budget allows.
