need cpu, mb, ram, and video card for around $500

So the mb on my computer has died and due to money issues, I am hoping to reuse my ps, case, and hard drive. My PS is a 2 year old

CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-650TX 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply & New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

I do moderate gaming, and have not overclocked before. Realize most cpu stock fans kinda stink now so may have to get a better one. Qhat parts woukd you guys recommend for that price range and maybe even enable a certain amount of future upgradeability. Thanks for any help!!!
