Hello everybody, my first post so I'll try and make this as compact as possible.
Either my previous graphics card or motherboard has fried, it's been a good 4 years and whatever has happened it is time to upgrade. I have put together a system that I believe can last me the next 4 years, if not more.

I am stuck on what motherboard to get; Ideally I would like a motherboard that has USB 3.0 ports, and possibly supports DDR3 ram of 1600mhz speed, although I heard this depends on what the CPU can handle. My other issue is what graphics card would be best suited for me? I've looked around and the AMD 6670 looks best given I have a 460W PSU. Nevertheless, here are my parts, would like your recommendations and advice.

Regards, Naweed.
