I have been using my crappy modem/router from my ISP for the past 15 years. I am asking ot savvy with this stuff at all. I understand what I say next will be a big upgrade on it's own, but I would like to know if I purchase this strong router if it will be hindered by this modem Netgear CM500 (16X4) Docsis 3.0 Cable Modem
No it will not, since the router handles all the traffic within the network and acts as a bridge to your modem to the outside world. The connection to the router from the modem is a 10/100/1000 port so it will always max out at 1000. Your modem is capable of 680Mbps at a maximum so the only bottle neck would be if you were paying for speeds higher then 680Mbps to your ISP. If you were paying for 800Mbps you would only be able to achieve the 680Mbps losing 120Mbps of speed your paying for.

My opinionated opinion is just get 1 unifi AP and an r7000, turn off the shitty WiFi on the router, hook up the AP and see what wifi was meant to be. Costs close to this router here and the AP doesn't look like something that will crawl up ur anus at night and lay eggs.
lets see, 450mbit + 300mbit (assuming you spring for the UAP-pro) vs 1000+2167+2167 hmm

The GT model is great. The AC version not so much.

All the AC routers will be obsolete by Q1 2020 when AX becomes mainstream.

too bad the gt 5300 doesnt support merlin. The GT is almost abandonware. It only gets hack vulnerability updates, that were found by forum users.

So for the average user is AC going to be okay? I've not kept up with the wireless stuff but I don't think I even have any AC specific devices. I need to replace an Asus RT-N66U. Should I jump on this or wait around for an AX? I'm not in a hurry, but I definitely want to replace this old guy.

Edit* average user meaning I have multiple echo devices, 4k smart TVs, laptops, a gaming computer, multiple phones, etc.

this will do you fine. if you upgrade to an AX you want to make sure your devices support AX. but if most of youre devices are still on AC then this would be good.
