Motherboard Replacement

Good day,

Below is my current build, my motherboard has failed me. I need to replace the 3.5 year old part and I'm confused as far as finding a compatible one that will allow me to use my existing parts. I'm open to a new mobo and processor combo if I could still use the old parts.

  1. Mainly I do only gaming on the computer. From what I've found, is it isn't worth keeping too much from my current build so if anyone has suggestions on a good combo of mobo and cpu, and ddr3 ram.
