    if you use HDMI (also for sound) could you look at this motherboard

    You could reuse the ram you have and the rest.This would even do some basic gamng if you got interested.For that would the ram be a bottleneck,but it would be able to.The gpu you have now could be left out then and you would have a better one in return.
