My motherboard just died on me, and I am wondering if I should just stick to the same kind of motherboard (AM3+). If i do I would be able to reuse the cpu, ram, and psu for a bit longer. Is it even worth it to keep using the CPU and RAM, or should I just upgrade to another kind of motherboard and get a newer CPU? Is AM3+ obsolete at this point? If I should upgrade, what should I upgrade to for the motherboard and CPU?
I mainly use the computer for gaming (at medium to high settings) and a bit for light programming work.
My Current specs are: CPU: AMD FX-6300 6 core - Motherboard: AsusTek M5A78l-M/USB3 - AM3+ - GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3gb - OS: Windows - RAM: DDR3 - SSD: Samsung SSD 860 EVO 500 GB - PSU: EVGA 600W - OS: Windows 10
