    Unfortunately my motherboard does not support intel :(
  3. a used i5 of 4th gen will cost under 100$ + new MB for 70-100 will do the job better than any current AMD processor

    Depends on your license, but most probably no - you will be able to reactivate for free.
    If you have Win 10 - http://www.windowscentral.com/how-re-activate-windows-10-after-hardware-change
    if you don't, upgrade for free by activating some assistive tech in windows - https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade
    and than do the first .
    P.S.
    Windows 10 boots on new HW without problem. Older versions require couple of steps before move.
