This^, you will need to find a new mobo with the seat for your new CPU (either 1155 or 1150 )

You can, though depending on your motherboards seat it probably will be only a minor upgrade as you may be limited to only AM3 seat chips. (post your motherboard specs)

Motherboard specs DDR3 1800 OC. Old Processor AMD Athlon 255 Video card just in case GTX 650 1gb is way too powerfull my processor can't handle it and i can't do good gaming like for example i heard this card can handle Farcry 3 on ultra but it just handles it on lowest. World of tanks on lowest Serious Sam 3 BFE on low Farcry 2 on ultra.

if it doesnt support "AM3+" then you cannot have the FX series processors, and you will need to buy a new motherboard also.

Well if you could somehow get this :http://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-hdx945wfgmbox
it would be the fastest CPU available to you without upgrading your motherboard (only about twice as fast as you currently have) However it is still not nearly as powerful as the FX 6300 .
I would suggest saving up and simply buying a new CPU AND motherboard

I found this one Processor AMD Athlon II X4 740 FM2, 3.2GHz, https://www.varle.lt/procesoriai/procesorius-amd-athlon... Just check the picture link is in my langauge but check the picture will this one work? And Processor AMD FX-4350, socket AM3+, 64bit, 4,2GHz, 125W, cache 12MB it says AM3 and my motherboard can support AM3 how about this one?

Neither of these will fit, it needs to say AM3, FM2 or AM3+ will not work.

Well i guess i just stay with my old mother board and old processor i don't wanna buy new motherboard because i will have to rebuild my whole PC. I just try to add 4 more rams to PC and atleast i will get a little boost for gaming with 8 rams. There is no other processors available in my country just AMD FX AMD EPU and Intel Cores Thanks for your anwsers atleast i wont waste my money for non working processors
