Future graphic card and cpu upgrade

Hi i am a gamer,
MY asus m5a78-lm/usb3 has failed.
i live in india and the cost of the motherboard is around 5000 inr(50$incl.tax).i had heard of zen getting released,within a few months , iam ready to wait until 2017 ,or i have an another choice
of getting the same motherboard as upgrading to zen will lead to change my cpu,ram, which will cost around 15000 to 20000(150-200$incl.tax)

IF i'am not upgrading to zen , i have an another choice of buying the same mb 5000inr(50$)
and buying the rx 460 or 470 which will be around 10000 to 15000 respectively in inr.
My SPecs
AMD fx 6300
8 gb ddr3 1600 cl10 ram
geforce gt 730
and a failed asus m5a78lm/usb3 mb
my total budget is 15k-20k inr

  1. Your CPU will become outdated in 12 months. It wouldn't be able to run the upcoming AAA titles.

    Wait for Zen, or keep the 8 Gb ram and switch to intel now

    You need to upgrade the graphics card well beyond the 470 to get any benefit from any CPU upgrade when it comes to gaming.

    An oc fx-6300 isn't going to suddenly be unable to run games in the next year.

    Thanoj,

    I would replace the motherboard now.

    Waiting may not help, since we don't have much firm information about Zen yet. You might wait only to find out that it will be out of your price range to build something with it that you would like, or there could be shipping issues. Generally selling components individually ends with less money than selling a working computer, so if you invest the 5000inr in a new motherboard now it will let you continue to use your computer for the next several months, and then when Zen is released you will have the option to sell your working computer to help raise money towards building a new machine or continue using yours and go with other upgrades if it turns out that would work better once we know all of the Zen pricing.
