So I need a new motherboard

Hi, I am new to this forum so apologies if I post in a wrong section.

So I need to upgrade my motherboard as I am a streamer and my current cpu is not good enough (fx-4100). The max my motherboard can handle is an fx-6300 which is almost no difference. I am planning to buy an fx-8350 and to do that I need to upgrade my motherboard. I need a microATX motherboard since my case is not a normal sized one. Buying a new case is out of the question. My current motherboard is an ASUS M5A78L-M LX3 

My other specs

CPU : fx-4100 bulldozer 3.6ghz

GPU : Sapphire 7850 2GB GDDR5

Ram : 1 x 4gb 1600mhz

Power Supply : Alpine 700W (Its a cheap psu but it lasted me for over 2 years now)

Hard drive : 700GB (don't know the full specs of it) 

I looked through tons of motherboards and what do you think about this one

and no I am not american, can someone link me to one that is shipping to Ireland?

if you can I guess the better option is to upgrade the case but if you really don't want the gigabit is ok

6300 will help a bit with the streaming. The additional cores will handle the software, while the game runns better on the other cores.

8320/8350 is the way to go if you can afford it.

If you can go for 970 chipset. Seriously, it is better. And avoid asrock and msi for am3+...

Build a rig on PCPARTPICKER.

My recommendation is that you buy more ram along with a new mobo, i can barely web brows without filling up 3-4 gigs of ram. I recommend this stuff ( now i linked the 8gb pack but you can certainly go for the 1x4gb. For a mobo we need more info, are you going to be upgrading your hdd soon by adding another one? Do you want to overclock? What is your budget? Do you want it to match your case etc. 

Can someone double check for me is t his the same one ?


It is the same board as the one you have posted above, yes.
