I have a As rock 890gx extreme 3 that I believe has gone bad. It has a amd phenom quad core processor now. What would be a good replacement for it. Can I reuse the memory or processor or would I be better to get new. I would like to reuse the Intel ssd and 650 watt corsair PSU. I will also be reusing my Xfx GPu, and cooler master case. The computer is used for light gaming and video converting to burn DVD's. I would like to stay with Amd if possible. My budget is up to $500.00 but prefer to stay as economical as possible.

Also will I have to purchase another copy of Win7? The copy that I purchased was a system builders version.

Thanks for the help

I would suggest switching out that RAM stick for something else, as 1866 MHz is over-kill and not necessary. I would suggest something with 1600MHz.
