I would say the Motherboard will give you better route expansion, the CPU is still fine its a Zosma OEM chip but its good enough to last you a while yet. Getting up to a new motherboard will give you better features and expansion, if possible go to a 990FX board and wait until mid next term for a Steam Roller CPU.
