Hello, I am quite new to buying computer parts and so on.
I need help with deciding what Motherboard I can get for the parts I have.
I am trying to upgrade my PC bit by bit because I didn't have the money to buy a whole GOOD computer.

So currently my system looks like this:

Motherboard : AMD 880G Chipset
CPU: AMD Phenom(tm)II X6 1035T
GPU: GeForce Nvidia GTX570 (Bought seperately)
PSU: Corsair TX750(Bought seperately)
Memory: 3x corsair vengeance 4gb pc12800 [( only 2/3 being used as MOBO is limited to 8gb memory ).Also bought seperately]
I intend to upgrade the CPU in some distant future but now I want to change the Motherboard. It pains me that I can't use my 3rd memory module :D  .

Tl;dr. what Motherboard can I upgrade to so that my other Computer parts will still be compatible. I'm not looking for the best motherboard out there because my money is limited but I'm looking for something good enough to upgrade my PC further at a later stage.
Thank You for your time.

What motherboard model do you have?

most likely the memory problem is due to the memory needing to be installed in pairs. See if you can find/buy another memory stick

if the motherboard has four slots, it should support 16GB (4x 4GB) of RAM

Supposely it's just called 'Acer Aspire M3400 motherboard', I can't get anything better than that, sorry.

I know it's shit :)  don't worry. That is the reason I want to change it, it was in the PC from the very start. and if you could recommend any better ones? I don't mind paying up to 150-200euro.
