  1. i prefer not, as FX series using more power than usual CPU (at a risk that you could burn the entire system with a crappy PSU)
    but if your need is urgent, well you might go for it
    but i suggest to save up and get a better one (preferably intel that still uses DDR3)

    FX is dead. Terrible investment to get anything from that line-up.

    If you want a decent CPU + Mobo + RAM for that budget get this:

    MUCH MUCH more worth.

    You don't really want to keep your older RAM, industry is focused on DDR4. The more you delay that, the more you'll have to keep upgrading to old tech. The GPU is still fairly decent, no need to swap it right now, still able to push medium settings @1080p.

    With the parts i suggested you will at least get a budget rig(which will be fairly best than your current setup of I may say so) that isn't ancient.
