I am currently replacing an AMD Athlon 64 processor and MSI K8T Neo-FIS2Rmotherboard that I suspect there may be a fault in. Are there any direct-drop in motherboard/processor combinations to upgrade to or should I just find matching part numbers?

AKA MSI 6702

The replacements will have no correlation at all to the replaced, other than the limitations of case size/type.

Your old board was/is ATX, should have no problem fitting new one in same case.

Your only restriction is your budget and imagination.

You need to bear in mind that the RAM, motherboard, and CPU all belong together. Choose a board that accommodates the CPU you want to afford, remembering that you also have to purchase RAM for that board.

And an operating system.
